  • Dough

    Mix the flour, salt and yeast in a bowl. Add the milk and all the other ingredients up to and including the butter, knead to form a soft, smooth dough. Cover and leave to rise at room temperature for approx. 1½ hrs. until doubled in size.
  • To shape

    Shape the dough into a roll, cut into 12 pieces and shape into balls. Lightly flour the handle of a wooden spoon and make a hole in the centre of each. Allow the dough rings to form around the spoon handle until the opening measures approx. 4 cm in diameter. Place the bagels on a baking tray lined with baking paper, cover and leave to rise for approx. 15 mins. Bring the water and sodium bicarbonate to the boil, allow 3 bagels at a time to infuse for approx. 12 secs. in just-boiling water. Remove with a slotted spoon, drain thoroughly and return to the baking paper.
