Bagels | Basics with Babish (feat. Dan Souza)

Check out What's Eating Dan?, where Dan Souza tests the theory of New York vs. Boston water for bagel-making, and a whole lot more!

This week on Basics, we're tackling one of the home-cook holy-grails: really chewy, really crisp, really good bagels, somehow existing outside NYC. Or Montreal.

+ Ingredients & Shopping List

1 cup plus 2 tablespoons ice water (9 ounces)
2 tablespoons malt syrup
2 ⅔ cups (14 2/3 ounces) bread flour
4 teaspoons vital wheat gluten
2 teaspoons instant or rapid-rise yeast
2 teaspoons salt
¼ cup (1 1/4 ounces) cornmeal
¼ cup (1 3/4 ounces) sugar
1 tablespoon baking soda

    Where's everybody's favorite bagels from? I'm tired of making them and want to go out and buy one.

    I’m having trouble with the bagels sticking to the plastic wrap. Thoughts?

    Pretty sure you guys didn't make bagels... All I see is donut bread.... Would love to see a * real * bagel episode (aka Montreal style ;) )

    Skip the cornmeal, skip proofing in the fridge overnight. Once they're rolled and shaped you can go right to boiling them. The extra steps here do almost nothing. You're going to think they're too small and you need to let them rise before boiling them but they will expand quite a bit when you boil them. And 20 seconds per side is not enough in the water, try 50-60 seconds per side. Your bagels will be denser and chewier.

    Has anyone tried this? The ingredients in the description say instant or rapid rise yeast, but I’d think with a long rise (even in the fridge), you’d want regular bakers yeast.

    That was weird. I watched Dan's show 'featuring Babish' that had like a 10 second clip from this episode on his that sounded like it was added last minute. And you didn't send him the water? I don't understand why the mention at all.

    Can you use a stand mixer instead of a food processor? Or should I just knead it if I dont have a food processor?
