Directions

IMG_5948– In the mixer or bread machine, combine the all dough ingredients. Knead it 10 minutes. It might be stiff at first. Keep kneading until it get smooth
容器或面包机内加入所有食材,混合均匀,和面约10分钟。面团刚开始会偏沉,继续搓面至光滑为止

– In the small container, combine cocoa powder and water well. Divide the dough  into half (250g each). Knead the cocoa and one of the dough together till it is completely combined
将可可粉融入于2大匙水。面团分割成2等份(各250克)。将可可糊搓入其中一个面团至均匀

– Put these dough into the separate containers, then proof them at warm place (30℃) till it becomes bigger size (about 1 – 1.5 hours)
两份面团分开发酵至双倍大(在30摄氏度处,发酵时间约1-1.5小时)

– Pour the dough onto the floured counter, then deflate them, knead briefly. Divide them into 5 pieces (50g each), it becomes 10 pieces totally. Let them rest for 20 minutes with cover
将面团放在案板上,稍微排气。原面团和可可面团各分割成5等份(各50克)。此时,应有10份面团。盖上保鲜膜,休面20分钟

Shaping (shaping tutorial also available in the above link)
整形图解可参考以上链接
IMG_5937IMG_5981– Roll a portion of chocolate and original dough out to 20cm x 10cm with rolling pin
将各原面团和可可面团用擀面杖擀开成20×10厘米的长方形

– Lay cocoa dough onto plain dough and put white chocolate chips on top
将一份可可面片摆在原面片上,然后撒上白巧克力豆

– Roll it up swiss roll style and seal seams tightly
小心卷起,封口捏紧

– Press one end of the dough flat with a rolling pin
面团的一角,用擀面杖擀平

– Bring both the ends together and cover edge with pressed side. seal tightly
面团两端和在一起,将擀平的一处,裹上面团的另一处。收口捏紧

– Transfer to baking tray and make the other bagels (original dough inside chocolate dough, and placing chocolate chips in it)
-将整形后的贝果放到烤盘上,继续将其余面团整形 (和以上相反,可将原面片摆在可可面团上,然后撒上巧克力豆)

– Place them in a warm place for 30 mins. Meanwhile, prepare boiling water with 1 tbsp of sugar in a large saucepan and preheat oven to 190 degrees C
贝果放在温处发酵30分钟。沸水中加入1大匙糖,并预热烤箱至190摄氏度

– After proofing the dough, put them into boiling water upside and backside  for 30 seconds each. Place them onto a wire lack to dry up roughly for 1minutes. Put them back on the baking tray
发酵后的贝果放入沸水,上下面各煮30秒。放在网上沥干约1分钟,在放回烤盘

– Bake them at 180℃ for 20-25 minutes or till colour becomes golden brown
将烤箱温度调至180摄氏度,放入贝果,烤20-25分钟即可

Personal notes/温馨小贴士: 

IMG_5949 – i placed my original dough inside chocolate dough for all my bagels and used mini dark chocolate chips as filling (not too much though.. probably 15-20 chips for entire bagel)
我的贝果全都是可可面团朝外,并用了迷你黑巧克力豆 (一个贝果约15可巧克力豆)

– i followed the recipe without making any changes ~ the only difference is that i used 1 tbsp baking soda instead of sugar when boiling the water (that resulted in a darker shade of brown for my bagels)
这食谱我唯一做的调整,是在沸水里用了1大匙苏打粉替代糖,所以贝果的效果偏深褐色

– my bagels were baked for 20 mins exactly
我的贝果烤了20分钟

– bear’s expressions are decorated with melted dark, white and strawberry chocolate. bear’s ears are Meiji chocolate, attached to the bagel using melted chocolate
小熊面部表情是用融化黑,白和草莓巧克力画上的。小熊耳朵是Meiji 巧克力用融化巧克力粘上的

    OMG, this must be the cutest ever bagels! We seldom eat bagels. Normally see these in gourmet shops but we normally will go for sourdough because my daughter loves it. After seeing your bagel, may be I should try making them one day.
