The history of Cinnamon Raisin Bagels
Cinnamon Raisin Bagels have a rich history, dating back to the 1800s in New York City. Legend has it that a Jewish baker named Saul Newman decided to add cinnamon and raisins to his dough, and this new flavor caught on with his customers. Today, Cinnamon Raisin Bagels are beloved all over the world for their sweet and delicious flavor.
The Secret to a Perfect Cinnamon Raisin Bagel
If you’re a fan of cinnamon raisin bagels, then you know that they can be tricky to make. However, with a few simple tips, you can ensure that your bagels are perfect every time. First, it’s important to use fresh yeast. Old yeast will produce an unpleasant flavor in your dough.
Then, make sure to heat your water and sugar together until they reach a boil before adding the yeast. This will help to activate the yeast and create the desired consistency in your dough.
Finally, be careful not to over-knead your dough. Over-kneading can result in tough bagels that are difficult to chew. Once you’ve achieved the consistency that you want, simply allow your bagels to rise several times in a warm place. You can then pan-fry the bagels and serve them with anything you like.
To make sure your bagels come out perfectly every time, follow these tips for shaping and baking: Preheat the oven to 425 degrees F (220 degrees C). Add a teaspoon of baking powder to each batch of dough. heavily flour your work surface before shaping, then roll out each batch of dough to 1/4-inch thickness. Use a biscuit cutter or a broad spoon to cut out circles or triangles and place on an ungreased baking sheet. Bake for 10 minutes, then reduce the heat to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C) and continue baking for another 10 minutes or until golden brown.
