So I have been totally obsessing and drooling over the latest bagel trend. The Bagel Store located in Brooklyn is known for it's Rainbow Bagels among other interesting varieties. People are literally lining up to try these colorful eye catching Rainbow Bagels. I decided to make theses bagels myself and surprisingly it wasn't difficult. These bagels are tasty and so fun. Your kids will love them!
I found this recipe on whatjewwannaeat.com
-2 cups of warm water
-1 packet of active dry yeast
-1 tablespoon of sugar
-6 cups of flour
-2 teaspoons of salt
-1 teaspoon of vegetable oil
First you will need to make the yeast. In a bowl add 1 cup of warm water to the yeast and mix in the sugar. Let it sit for about 10 minutes until it foams and bubbles.
Then add flour, oil, salt and the remaining water. Mix and knead and let it rise in a greased bowl for 60 minutes in a warm area.
Preheat the oven to 450 degrees. Also, bring a pot of water to a boil.
Take the dough and divide it up. Add food coloring to each divided piece of dough. Knead the food coloring in(I decided to wear gloves to not get food coloring on my hands). I used red, yellow, green and blue.
Next, roll out each dough ball and then stack the dough in rainbow order (red, yellow, green,blue). Then cut out into strips and twist. Then pinch the ends together to make into a circle like a bagel.
Next you need to boil the bagels for just 30 seconds each. This allows the bagels to have a crunchy outside and soft inside. Place on a cooling rack and allow to dry then bake the bagels on a parchment lined cooking sheet for 15 minutes,
Once cool, spread with cream cheese and even add some sprinkles if you like. Enjoy!
