250g bread flour
10g granulated sugar
3g instant yeast
110g softened cream cheese
Grated parmesan cheese (topping)
- In the stand mixer bowl, bring together bread flour, sugar, salt, instant yeast and milk, beat until a soft dough ball forms. Divide the dough ball into five pieces, roll them into small dough balls, and cover with plastic wrap and let rest for 30 minutes.
- Soften the cream cheese and transfer into a piping bag. Roll each dough ball flat, pipe in the cream cheese filling, roll it up and shape into a bagel. Cover with plastic wrap and let rise until doubled in size.
- Preheat the oven to 200℃(392℉). In a pot, put in 500g water and 20g granulated sugar, heat until simmer, put in each bagel; cook for 20 seconds each side.
- Dust each bagel with grated parmesan cheese. Line the baking tray with a baking mat or parchment paper. Send the bagels into the oven to bake for 12 minutes or until golden brown. Let the bagels cool and serve.
