Everything Bagel Bread 
 




I was keen to try out a different kind of a loaf in my bread machine this week. I discovered this delicious bubble bread loaf in a book entitled The Ultimate Bread Machine Cookbook, by Tiffany Dahle.  

I did adapt it slightly so that I could bake it in my oven after the rising period.  I wasn't entirely sure when the first two kneading cycles were done in the machine and so I just set it on the dough cycle and finished it by hand.

I was really pleased with the end result actually.  More than pleased.  It turned out beautifully.  I haven't sliced any yet, but it looks very promising! 


I have had a few flops the last few times I used my bread machine.  Yes, it happens to me as well. Not everything turns out.  Even seasoned cooks and bakers have their off days!

One day I put everything into my machine prior to leaving for church, thinking I would be greeted upon my return with a lovely loaf of bread, only to discover when I got home that I had forgotten to add the water.

I had a lovely pan of browned buttery flour. Not exactly as planned, and impossible to eat, plus pretty useless as the yeast was dead by then.  All I could do was to throw it away.

I tried the same loaf again a few days later, with high expectations, only to have it rise so high that it stuck to the underside of the bread machine lid.  It baked well and tasted okay, but it was not very pretty and had a huge crater in the center.

I blame the me. I accidentally used a quick rise yeast instead of bread machine yeast. My mistake.  I haven't given up on that particular loaf. Its a fabulous bread. I will try it again.

WHAT YOU NEED TO MAKE EVERYTHING BAGEL BREAD

The bread itself doesn't require a lot of ingredients. The only unusual one is the bagel seasoning.

  • 3/4 cup (180ml) whole milk
  • 3 TBS butter, cut into pieces
  • 3 cups (420g) plain all-purpose flour
  • 1 TBS sugar
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 2 tsp bread machine yeast
Everything Bagel Topping:
  • 3 TBS butter melted
  • 1 - 2 TBS everything bagel seasoning

Its not always easy to find Everything Bagel Seasoning. I know in America you can find it at Trader Joes.  Here in Canada I had to resort to buying it online. I did the same thing in the UK and at a premium price.

Another alternative is to make your own.  I have always enjoyed making my own seasonings and spice mixes.  

To make your own Everything Bagel Seasoning you will need:  2 TBS poppy seeds, 2 TBS sesame seeds, 1 1/2 TBS dehydrated chopped onions, 1 TBS dehydrated minced garlic, and 1 TBS flaked sea salt. Just add everything to a jar and give it a shake. Easy peasy.


Everything Bagel Bread 





You can use either all purpose flour or bread flour in this recipe. Today I used all purpose flour.  (Plain flour in the UK)

I use seasalt and actually never have any other kind in my kitchen.  For the flaked seasalt for the Bagel seasoning I used Maldon flaked sea salt. I was lucky enough to have been able to bring a large container of it back with me when I moved back to Canada.

HOW TO MAKE EVERYTHING BAGEL BREAD

Upon researching how to bake this bread in a regular oven I did find one recipe for doing so. It seemed overly complicated however and required allowing the dough to rise for the last time in a round pan and then transferring the risen dough to a Dutch oven to finish baking.

You can find that recipe here.

I didn't want to do any faffing about. And so I did my own thing. It worked perfectly.



Everything Bagel Bread 





Add everything to your bread machine in the order suggested by your bread machine manufacturer. With mine you put the yeast in first, followed by the flour, other dry ingredients, the butter and then the wet last.


Choose dough cycle.


Once the dough cycle has finished, remove the dough from the bread machine. Divide the dough into 14 - 16 golf ball shaped pieces. Shape them into ball shapes.


Butter a 9 by 4-inch loaf tin.Lightly nestle half of the dough balls into the loaf tin. Drizzle with half of the butter and sprinkle with half of the everything bagel seasoning.

Layer in the remaining dough balls. Drizzle with the remaining butter and sprinkle with the remaining everything bagel seasoning.


Lightly cover with some plastic cling film and set aside in a warm place to rise until double, about half an hour.Preheat the oven to 375*F/190*C/ gas mark 5.

Remove the cling film and bake the loaf of bread in the center of the oven for 35 to 40 minutes until golden brown and the loaf sounds hollow on the bottom when tipped out of the pan.

Leave to cool completely before slicing.

And that's it.  I wasn't quite as pedantic as I should have been perhaps when it came to shaping the balls. I wanted them to be a bit craggy and I quite like how they turned out.  


I haven't been able to slice down into it yet, but I am really looking forward to doing so.



Everything Bagel Bread 





I'm going to really enjoy a slice or two of it tonight, sliced and buttered, along with some good cheddar cheese.  I have a nice pack of Cathedral strong cheddar cheese sitting in the refrigerator with my name on it!

Here are some other bread machine loaves I have baked recently that you might enjoy:


BASIC RUSTIC LOAF - This is the perfect loaf of bread for every day, with a beautiful texture and crust. The time taken is variable according to your own bread machine. 


BUTTERMILK WHOLE WHEAT BREAD - This is a recipe for the bread machine that makes an absolutely beautiful loaf of bread. Of all the loaves I have made thus far, it is my favorite. Moist from buttermilk and sweetened with maple syrup.

  1. I always use the dough cycle for my bread - I first did so when my bread had just finished the first rising one day and the power went off for about 20 minutes. Not wanting to throw it out, I put it in pans for the second rising and have never turned back. It is always like fresh homemade bread. This week alone I've made regular bread, an Italian loaf and even rye bread. I usually always bake my bread at 375 for 35-40 minutes. Sometimes I'll make two one pound loaves - one will be a regular loaf - the second will be pan rolls. I use the 8 X 4.5 pans for this, not the 9X5 pans. I also make them with two 'balls' a pan. We are retired and so we keep half a loaf out and freeze the second half to keep it fresh. The shaped breads I do on a sheet...

    1. Thanks so much Linda! That is very helpful information! I was a bit unsure when I was doing mine about what to do so it was just guess work on my part. How blessed you are to have someone to share your bread with! xo

  2. We learn from out mistakes, the first loaf sure looks good. Stay safe during the approaching storm, missed seeing a post from you today on your Tea blog.

    Hi Marie,
    Costco now has an Everything Bagel Seasoning in the spice aisle. It’s approximately 3-4 times larger than the bottle from Trader Joe’s. A lot more bang for your buck.
