IMG_5943everytime i make bagels, i get all jittery… (/-(エ)-\) because i am very inconsistent with the shaping… but we love bagels… chocolate bagels especially…. and when i came across this interesting recipe, i wanted to bake it straightaway…. it’s a beauty! ʕ•̫͡•ʔ❣ʕ-̼͡-ʔ…

Recipe adapted from Bake KoBo

Recipe (makes 5)

IMG_5944300g bread flour
5g salt
15g sugar
165g water
3g instant dry yeast

2 tbsp cocoa powder
2 tbsp water

chocolate chips
white chocolate chips

boiling water
1 tbsp sugar

食材 (可做5个)






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

– 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

– Put these dough into the separate containers, then proof them at warm place (30℃) till it becomes bigger size (about 1 – 1.5 hours)

– 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

Shaping (shaping tutorial also available in the above link)
IMG_5937IMG_5981– Roll a portion of chocolate and original dough out to 20cm x 10cm with rolling pin

– Lay cocoa dough onto plain dough and put white chocolate chips on top

– Roll it up swiss roll style and seal seams tightly

– Press one end of the dough flat with a rolling pin

– Bring both the ends together and cover edge with pressed side. seal tightly

– 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

– 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

– Bake them at 180℃ for 20-25 minutes or till colour becomes golden brown

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)

– my bagels were baked for 20 mins exactly

– 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.
