25g sourdough starter

500g strong white bread flour from Shipton Mill

10g salt

20g caster sugar

25g butter

200g/mls warm water.


Mix the starter with most of the water until mixed in. Add the dry ingredients and butter. Make into a dough, adding more of the water if necessary, and use your favourite recipe for kneading and proving. Leave overnight in a cool place to double in size. 
Next morning knock back and shape into 6 balls. Rest 10mins. Then makes holes in the middle, rest again 15 mins while boiling a couple of litre of water in a large pan. Boil the bagels 3-5 mins each side. Let them cool a little on a lined baking tray.

Brush with milk or egg wash and dip in seeds of choice or leave naked. 

Bake 15mins until brown and yummy!
