Rainbow Bagels

Another recipe that I will be sending in to instructables.com rainbow contest 😀

The base recipe is using my go to bagel recipe, I just added food coloring to make them colorful, stealing the ideas from the trending rainbow bagels on the internet haha

For more intense rainbow color (instead pastels like mine), use Americolor gel food coloring!

Recipe below is for 1 color, so you will need to make batches!

3/4 c lukewarm water

1/2 tbsp active dry yeast

1/2 tbsp brown sugar/palm coconut sugar

10 drops blue food color – liquid

2 c flour

1 tsp salt

1 tsp sugar

Into stand mixer, pour water and sprinkle with brown sugar and yeast, let stand for 5 minutes

Squirt in food color

Add in flour and salt plus sugar, knead to combine

Coat a bowl with a little oil and place dough in the bowl

Cover bowl with cling wrap while working on other color

Repeat step for other color (and each time, cover dough with cling wrap)

One of the dough, I add about 2 handful of softened raisins

Once all dough are made, roll each to a rectangle size and place on a baking sheet that is already lined with parchment paper

Stack all dough and wrap them in cling wrap

Let stand dough in warm area (such as kitchen counter or inside oven with light on) for half hour – dough will rise and fluffy

Turn dough on floured board and slice into ropes

Slice each rope into two portions and twist and roll to bagel shape

Cover and let stand for half hour

Preheat oven to 425 F

Prepare bagels bath!

In a pot, add in water up to just above 1/2 of the pot

Add in 2 tbsp brown sugar, 1 tbsp maple syrup and 1/2 tsp baking soda

Bring water to boil lightly, then turn down heat to medium to simmer

Drop bagel into water for a minute on both side (half minute upper side and half minute down side)

Place bagels on parchment lined baking sheet and bake for 20-25 mins

You can serve them as is or toasted and buttered (or with anything you like. My fav is with smoked salmon cream cheese – yeah I know am weird, raisin and smoked salmon lol)

Enjoy!
