  3. Beat on medium speed, and when the mixture is creamy, add the yeast-sugar mixture that should be foamy

  5. Switch to the dough hook, and keep adding the flour until completely out

  6. Cover the mixing bowl with plastic wrap and let it rise until it has doubled up in size

  7. Turn the dough out onto the lightly floured board and divide it into 4 equal parts, then divide the each of the 4 parts into 3 equal sized parts.

  8. Take each piece and shape it into a round ball, then flour your finger and poke a hole in the middle of the bagel

  9. Put the bagels in the oiled pans (2 bigger sized ones) and cover them to let them rise for 15 min.

  10. In the meantime prepare a big pot with boiling water, put 1 tbsp of baking soda in it.

  11. Using a skimmer - lower up to 3 bagels into the water. They will drop to the bottom, and then rise to the surface quickly

  12. As they come to the surface, turn them around and boil them on the other side for 2 minutes

  13. Using the skimmer, transfer the bagels to the dry kitchen towel to drain for a moment, then return to the prepared baking sheets.
