Baz Bagel Rainbow Baking Kit

Baz Bagel is in the heart of New York’s Little Italy making family recipes and authentic hand-rolled, kettle boiled and baked all on-site. And now you can make your own New York Rainbow Bagels at home with this unique kit!

Before Bari Musacchio opened Baz Bagel on New York’s Lower East Side in 2014, she perfected her bagel recipe by visiting scores of New York bagel shops and even volunteering at one in New Jersey. The result? Baz Bagels’ bagels are hand-rolled, kettle-boiled, and baked on burlap-covered boards in a rotating oven. The end result is a bagel that’s crisp and chewy on the outside, soft on the inside, and New York through-and-through. Baz Bagel has been featured on the Best Thing I Ever Ate.

Instructions / Storage

  • Kit arrives ready to use
  • Upon arrival leave at room temperature for up to 1 month

To Serve

  • Activate by putting yeast + sugar packet in 1 1/3 cups of warm water. Wait for yeast to bubble up in the water to activate. Don’t panic – it will take about 5-7 minutes.
  • Combine flour, malt, and the yeasty water into the mixer.
  • Mix for 12 minutes with a dough hook on No. 2 setting. No mixer? No problem! Knead dough 20 minutes by hand (a bit strenuous, but doable!)
  • Test the dough. It’s done when it’s smooth, not sticky, and holds it’s shape. To test, press your fingerprint into it and it will slowly return back to shape.
  • Form one large dough ball. Technique: fold the loose edges into the center of dough to form a ball (this will become the bottom of the ball). Gently flip over. The top of the ball will be smooth. Bagel rookies, it’s okay if it’s not a perfectly smooth ball. it will still work just fine.
  • Place the dough ball in a lightly greased, medium to large bowl, cover with plastic wrap, and let it rest in the fridge for one hour or until it about doubles in size.
  • Split the dough into 3 parts and using 3 separate bowls (one for each color) mix each part with 10-12 drops of color and knead each color for about 3 minutes. Until color is even throughout. Take part 1 and color it blue. Take part 2 and color it green. Take part 3 and color it pink. Tip: Wear gloves while using colorants.
  • Flatten each dough color with rolling pin into a flat square “pancake” about 1/4 inch thick.
  • Stack and layer each color on top of each other – cut the stack in half and then one half on top of the other half. You should have 6 colors stacked. Use knife or dough cutter to cut the dough.
  • Slice the dough into 8-10 “roughly” equal strips. Roll each strip out to approx. 8 inches in length. 8 larger bagels, 10 smaller bagels.
  • Roll each strip of the dough, wrap each strip around your hand to form a rainbow ring around your hand. gently press ends together to seal. Pro tip: With the dough around your hand, roll the edges gently against the table to seal.
  • Place rolled bagels directly on highly greased sheet pan (or directly on a sil-pat mat), cover tray in plastic wrap, sing them a lullaby, and tuck them in to sleep overnight in the fridge.
  • Take bagels out of the fridge and let sit (on the tray) at room temperature for 30 minutes.
  • While they are proofing, preheat oven to 425 F and boil a pot of water (medium to larger pot).
  • Put bagels into the boiling water (3-4 bagels at a time). Boil for 45 seconds, then flip and boil for another 45 seconds on the other side.
  • Put bagels directly on lightly greased sheet pan or silicone baking mat, then into the oven and bake for 8-10 minutes.
  • Open oven and gently flip each bagel. Bake for 8-10 minutes.
  • Take out of oven to cool.
  • Slice bagel and top with lox and schmear.
  • Enjoy!
