After making cinnamon rolls earlier this week (link here), I wanted to see what other things I could make with a similar quick dough. Bagels have also been on my baking wish list, so I was thrilled to find a recipe online (link here).
This dough was greek yogurt, flour, salt and baking soda. It came together quickly and just required a little bit of kneading to get a nice ball. I divided it into 4 pieces which made 4 bagels. Regular bagels are made by taking a rope of dough and forming it into an ‘O’. These ones were a little different, but you end up with the same result. I took each piece of dough and stretched it out to make a hole in the middle.
Once they were all formed, I brushed them with a beaten egg and sprinkled with poppy and sesame seeds. You could use any bagel seasoning or leave them plain if you wish. They baked in the oven for about 20 minutes until golden brown. They were beautiful and the house smelled so good.
The outside was a little crispy and the inside was quite soft. I decided to cut them open to toast. That just helped them get a little firmer and extra crispy edges.
My parents enjoyed them with smoked salmon and cream cheese, whereas I had cream cheese and sliced cucumber. It was a great breakfast and I can’t wait to make them again.
I wonder if I could make a bread loaf with a similar yeast-free/greek yogurt dough. That would be pretty awesome.
Have you been baking during quarantine? What things have you baked? Let me know in the comments!
Hope you have a good weekend 🙂
