Bagels | Basics with Babish (feat. Dan Souza)

  • Am 24 Jan 2019 veröffentlicht
  • 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

    2 teaspoons salt
    ¼ cup (1 1/4 ounces) cornmeal
    ¼ cup (1 3/4 ounces) sugar

      Here in NJ, Manhattan Bagel has some of the best bagels, from the warmth of a jalapeno cheddar to the child-like indulgence of a chocolate chip. Magnificent.

      Since moving to Canada, only really had bagels at one place: "Great Canadian Bagel". Standard stuff, but they make a cheddar and jalapeño bagel that is really good. The chewiness of the bagel in conjunction with those flavors makes it incredibly satisfying.

    Sorry, but I think a 'true' handmade bagel should be be made from a rope that is wrapped around your hand and then rolled/pressed to make a seam. It gives it that overlapping 'knot' texture at one point, which gives it more variety of texture. When I was a kid I used to hang out at the local 'Bagel Barn' and watch them being made - we called the family that ran the place the 'bagel benders'. Simply punching a hole in the middle and stretching it out makes it more boringly uniform like a machine made bagel. But still, I would eat your bagel any day...

    I had a feeling that these bagels would overproof given 2 tsp of yeast and overnight long proof and they sure did. These came out flat, overproofed, reeked of yeast, tasteless behind the malt flavor. I’d half or even quarter the yeast if I were to make these again. Better yet, stick to the serious eats recipe which actually happens to call for half the amount of yeast.

    I made bagels this morning. It was mixed results. I had two issues right up front. I couldn’t find any malt syrup in town so I used molasses (internet said I could substitute). I don’t have a food processor so I used a Ninja which started to smoke/burn up during the mixing :( Everything else went ok after that. The bagels came out darker and they were very chewy and had a good flavor. I tried a few different toppings. Salt, plain, and Everything Bagel from Trader Joe’s. I wish I just left them plain because I think that tasted best.
    Question: can I just knead the bread since I lack a food processor?

    Hello! I'm an American living in Korea, a land full of amazing food - but unfortunately lacking on the bread end of things. This video was my final push to finally make some bagels myself since I can't find them here. Weirdly enough, hamburger and hot dog buns are impossible to find here as well, so a future video on buns would be very helpful :)
    It would also be awesome if you delved into some Korean food! There are some really amazing dishes here that I think a lot of viewers would enjoy being introduced to. In the beginning of the Adventure Time episode "Apple Thief," Jake prepares a Korean meal of bibimbap, soy bean paste soup, fried shrimp (could be interpreted as seafood pancakes, which are incredible) and a grilled fish which may be interpreted as mackerel. While these are just a few of many great dishes, it could be a fun way to connect with audiences!

    Interesting! I've always preferred egg bagels because they are a bit less chewy (slightly more "bready" texture) but they've gotten hard to find these days where I live. Maybe I should just try looking for punch bagels.
