Rainbow Bagels

Cooking Time: 30 min Preparation Time: 30 min Serves: 8 poeple
a prepared Rainbow Bagels meal

Bread dough:

500 g Golden Cloud Flour

10 g instant dry yeast

1 tbsp white sugar

1 tsp salt

50 g butter, melted

About 375 ml warm water

Gel food colours (red, orange, yellow, green, blue, indigo, violet)

1 L water

1 tsp bicarbonate of soda

1 egg, beaten

Sea salt

Black sesame seeds


  1. Bread dough: Combine the flour, yeast, sugar and salt in a bowl, then mix well to combine. Stir in the melted butter, then mix in enough warm water to form a soft dough. Knead dough for about 10 minutes or until the dough is smooth and elastic. Cover the bowl then leave to rise in a warm place - the dough should grow to about double the size. Knock dough back to the original size then shape as desired.

  2. Divide the bread dough into 7 equal balls then colour each ball with a different colour, kneading well to evenly colour the dough (use gloves to avoid staining your hands).

  3. Divide each coloured dough ball into 8 equal pieces then roll into long strips (about 20 cm long).

  4. Take one strip of each colour and place next to each other to form a rainbow.

  5. Twist the strips together, then fold to meet the two ends and form a bagel, press the dough ends together to secure.

  6. Cover with greased cling film, then leave to rise at room temperature for 30 minutes.

  7. Preheat oven to 180°C.

  8. Place the risen bagels into the water, one at a time and cook for 5 seconds on one side, then turn over and cook on the other side.

  9. Remove from the water with a slotted spoon, then place onto a greased baking Tray.

  10. Brush each bagel with egg wash.

  11. Sprinkle the bagels with sea salt and black sesame seeds.

  12. Bake for 25 minutes then cool on a wire rack.

  13. Serve bagels with desired filling.
