Rainbow Bagels Made at Home
I heard all about rainbow bagels from this video on Youtube. Yea - I'm that person who wants to find impossible items to bake and then I go for it. Sometimes its a disaster!
I mean look how beautiful the colors are. Super psychedelic and unnatural but it draws me in, drooling. People were going crazy for them. Enough for the shop to close to figure out how to handle the crowds of people coming to buy their fun bagels.
Obviously we can't get them here in Alabama. So I decided to google and see if I could make some. If you can make bread with yeast, you can do this. You'll just need to find some gel dye so the dough doesn't get liquidy and gross. I went to a local bakery supply company and they had all kinds of gel neon dye to choose from - if you can't find them, you can order them online!
It looks intimidating but let me reassure you that it is NOT. Not at all. You'll make a bunch of beautiful bagels and you'll feel incredibly accomplished!
Here are a couple of videos that I used to make mine. I combined both into something I could make!
Let me know how yours turned out! Here are some of the pictures of mine. To be perfectly honest, I made some homemade buttercream icing to go inside of the bagels and it turned out to be pretty gross. I just like plain ol' cream cheese on my toasted bagels.
