Bagel dough in a bread machine
I would like to try this out this weekend, but I"m really nervous about putting such a stiff dough in my bread machine.
It's a Zojirushi BBCC-X20 - with the horizontal loaf pan, fully programmable, 2 lb loaf size. Accepts a maximum of 5 c of flour and 2 c of liquid. No info about this that I could find on their website or in my manual.
I've heard people say they do this, but there is no recipe in the book that came with the Zo and I'm worried about burning my machine out.
If anybody's ever done this, I'd appreciate any information about how it worked for you, recipes, etc, that you'd be willing to share.
I have these recipes that say they're specifically for bread machines:
Well I called them and they reassured me that it will be fine - in fact it turns out that many of the pictures on their website where they are using a Zo are for the same model as mine!
So I guess at this point I have nothing to fear but fear itself .. . now I have to convince my son to take me to Whole Food$ for barley malt powder . . .
