  • Line two baking sheets with baking parchment and spray with cooking spray.
  • Deflate the dough and cut into eight equal six pieces.
  • Roll each piece into a ball between your hands. Cover any dough not being used at the time with cling film.
  • Lightly wet a clean work surface (unfloured) and take each dough ball and roll into a sausage around 9 inches in length.
  • Wrap the dough around the fingers of one hand palm facing upwards. Overlap the ends then turn your hand over and roll on the work surface to seal the dough together.
  • Repeat with all the balls of dough placing each one into the lined baking sheets when rolled and formed.

  • Sieve a light coating of flour over the top of each bagel dough to prevent the cling film from sticking to the tops then cover and place in the fridge overnight.
  • The following day, remove from the fridge and leave to come to room temperature for one hour.
  • Preheat the oven to 450f.
  • Prepare the poaching water by bringing around 1.8 litres of water to the boil with the maple syrup, baking soda and salt.

  • Check the bagels are ready by placing one in a bowl of water. If it floats it is ready, if it sinks leave it for another 30 minutes to an hour. Then do the float test again.
