wheat flour type 450 – 225 g (approx. 1 and 1/3 cup)
wholemeal wheat or spelt flour – 225g
lukewarm water – 250 ml
sugar – 2 tbsp
salt – 1 tsp
500 ml of water
1.5 tablespoons of sugar
1 tablespoon baking soda
1.5 teaspoons of salt
unripe banana – 2 pcs.
sugar – 1 tbsp
butter – 1 tsp
hazelnuts – 60g
peanuts – 50g
milk chocolate – 80g
dark chocolate – 40g
dark cocoa – 1 tsp
brown sugar – 1 tsp
whole milk – 4 tbsp
salt – a pinch

1. LEAVAEN (15 min)
Crumble yeast and place in a bowl. Add flour, sugar and milk. Mix thoroughly. Cover with a cloth and leave for 15 minutes at room temperature. After this time, the leaven should double its volume and have bubbles on the surface.
2. KNEADING DOUGH (5 min) + I RISING (1.5 hours)
Pour two types of flour, sugar and lukewarm water into the grout. Mix thoroughly with a fork and then knead with your hands for a few minutes until a uniform, soft consistency is obtained. If the dough sticks to your hands, sprinkle it lightly with flour. Shape the dough into a ball, sprinkle with flour on the top and cover with a cloth. Leave to rise (doubling the volume) at room temperature for 1.5 hours.
3. II RISING (40 min)
Divide the risen dough into balls (approx. 6 pcs from the given portion). Lightly flatten each ball and use your fingers to make a hole in the center – to make a bagel. Place the bagels on a baking tray lined with baking paper, cover with a cloth and leave to rise for 40 minutes.
4. COOKING IN SOLUTION (3 min)
In a pot, boil water with sugar, salt and baking soda. Throw the bagels one by one into a boiling solution, cooked on low heat. Cook for 1 min on each side, then take out and put on a baking tray. Sprinkle oat flakes on top of each bagel.
5. BAKING (25 min)
Put pre-cooked bagels in pre-heated to 200°C/392F and bake for 25 minutes until browned. Pull out and set aside to cool for a while.
HOMEMADE NUT-CHOCOLATE CREAM
1. NUT ROASTING (3 min)
Put the peeled hazelnuts and peanuts into the hot frying pan. Stirring, heat them until they start to smell and blush slightly. Remove them from the pan and when they cool slightly, peel the hazelnuts from dark skins (it does not have to be thorough, it’s just to to avoid the bitter taste)
2. NUT BLENDING (5 min)
Put still warm, toasted nuts into the food processor. Mix them for several minutes, taking breaks from time to time so as not to overheat the engine. After the first 2-3 minutes, a greasy mass should begin to form. Continue mixing until a uniform, creamy consistency is achieved.
3. CHOCOLATE + SUGAR + COCOA + MILK (5 min)
Add chocolate and milk to the saucepan. Melt on very low heat, stirring constantly. Add sugar, cocoa and a pinch of salt. Heat and stir until the sugar dissolves. Set off the heat and set aside to cool for a while, then add ground nuts and mix thoroughly. Sweeten with sugar or honey if needed.
4. CARAMELIZED BANANA
Melt sugar in a pan and add banana chopped into thick slices. Add butter and fry for 1-2 minutes on each side until the banana is golden brown. Immediately proceed to serving the bagel while the banana is still warm.
Cut warm bagel in half, spread generously with chocolate cream from the inside, put slices of caramelized banana on it and sprinkle with chopped nuts. Eat with freshly brewed coffee. Here is a seasonal bagel from Bagel Bros at its best – on an exclusive post-apocalyptic dish!
