Easy and fun to make with children, these delicious spelt bagels hit the spot.
Grace loves fresh baked bread (who doesn’t right?), the smell of bread baking in the oven that then fills the house is hard to resist. One of our favourites, apart from flat breads is the humble bagel.
We tweaked this recipe for spelt flour and they worked out brilliantly, even Grace helped knead the dough and make the holes for the final bagels.
You can adjust the crust toppings to your favourite choices, but the main ones include: sesame seeds, nigella seeds, onions or poppy seeds, we chose sesame seeds as Grace loves them.
The difference between a New York style and a London bagel is the ‘chew factor’. Personally we like our bagels a little chewier this is achieved by boiling the bagel for 2 mins on each side. For a less chewy bagel adjust the boiling to 1 min on each side before baking.
