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
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..
