Bagel - step 1: mix, knead and first rise using a heavy duty mixer with a dough hook

Bagels - Introduction

A heavy duty electric mixer with a dough hook will make short work of mixing small or large batches of dough quickly.

Combine the warm liquid (110-115 degrees), syrup, honey or sugar, oil and yeast, and then add half the flour and all other dry ingredients. Add remaining flour until a ball forms.

The dough hook will do part or all of the kneading, which should take about 5 minutes. If the dough begins to strain the machine, add more water so it becomes softer (check your manufacturer's directions; a heavy duty mixer with a dough hook should have no problem kneading). When dough appears near desired consistency, remove it from the bowl and knead in extra dough until it forms a soft ball. Follow the same first rise procedures as in the hand mixing or food processor methods. If a fast-rising yeast is used, the first rise is not necessary.
