Perfect Bake® recipe


Typically bagels need a long fermentation to achieve the depth of flavor and texture that is expected with a tradition bagel. Here we have given flexible instruction where a shorter or longer rise is appropriate without compromising the final outcome. For a rich flavor, longer is better and you may want to make the dough a day or two before you plan to bake them.
