For best results, use a scale to measure the ingredients. To make perfectly lukewarm water combine 1 1/2 cups (340 grams) cold water with 1/2 cup (114 grams) boiling water. You can buy everything bagel seasoning or make your own. You can also use other seed mixes, such as dukkah, or you can simply use any single seed you like, such as sesame seeds. To create a warm place for your dough to rise: Turn your oven on at any temperature (350 degrees F or so) for 1 minute, then turn it off. Do not allow the oven to get up to 300 degrees F, for example, and then heat at that setting for 1 minute — this will be too hot. Just let the oven preheat for a total of 1 minute — it likely won’t get above 100 degrees F. The goal is to just create a slightly warm environment for the bread.
