Jersuaelem Bagel

>> Monday, January 26, 2009

This Jerusalem bagel is a combination of a pretzel and a bagel
the kind of bagel that you would find only in the old city Jerusalem
the smell entraps everyone who comes by.

I have searched for this recipes all over until yesterday I finally found the perfect one !

I was surprised how easy it was to make and the kids and I enjoyed it so much that today we are going to make another batch of Jerusalem Bagels.


  • 3 1/2 cups white flour
  • 1 envelope of dry yeast
  • 3 tbsp sugar
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 3 tbsp oil
  • 1 1/2 cups warm water
  • 1 egg
  • Sesame seed
  • poppy seeds
  • sugar
In a large mixing bowel put together the flour sugar salt yeast and oil and mix it, add the water and keep mix it together until it becomes a ball of dough.
grease a large bowel with oil and put the dough to raise for 2 hours.

after two hours make 5 small balls from the dough open each one of them with your thumb to make a small hole increase the hole until you have a long pretzel but not to longer then the oven tray.

brush the bagel with egg , spread sesame seed salt and Zatar if you want and bake for 20 min. or until the bagel become golden brown..

Having just discovered these bagles while in Jersualem 2 weeks ago I am so happy to find a recipe for them. While there we were taught to dip them in hysop. Now that was a taste I want to recreate. I just have to find a supplier for the hysop. Thankyou.
