• Make Your Own Bagels

    Making your own bagels is not difficult, and the taste cannot be beat! Once you've tasted the Authentic New York Style bagels, you'll Never go back to those stale bagged bagels from the grocery store.

    You'll Need:

    4 C. Bread Flour
    1 T. Sugar
    1 1/2 tsp Salt
    1 T. Vegetable Oil
    2 tsp. Instant Yeast
    1 1/2 c. Water 120-130F

    Combine 2 cups flour, sugar, salt, yeast in your Mixer.

    Add oil to the water and pour into the mixing bowl, mixing until smooth and creamy looking.

    Add remaining flour and continue to knead with the dough hook for several minutes until the dough is uniform and smooth.

    Cut dough into 8 equal size balls & let set for 15-20 min.

    Dough will puff up like this!

    Preheat oven to 425F

    Roll each of the dough balls into a long "snake" until it will wrap around your hand, forming a circle. Fuse well, then roll with the palm of your hand. Do not make your circles small, or when the bagels rise

    Let them rest for 20 minutes. In the meantime, bring a pot of water to a boil, grease a large sheet pan.

    Boil the bagels on each side for 1 minute, let them dry for a moment then place on oiled sheet pan.

    Bake at 425 for 10 minutes. Remove from oven, flip bagels, bake for additional 10 minutes.

    You can add any number of flavors you desire, in the photos above I actually made Cinnamon Raisin Bagels.

    I simply added 1/3. Raisins, 1 tsp Cinnamon and an additional 1 T. Sugar to the dough (before adding the remaining 2 cups of flour).

    Or, alternatively, once you remove the bagels from the hot water, place them face down into sesame seeds, poppyseeds, minced dried onions, etc, and then bagel as usual.

      I made these today, they are so goood! Mine didn't rise as much as yours look like they did-maybe my water wasn't warm enough? I'm going to make some more tomorrow, practice makes perfect! they still taste really good even if they didn't get quite as big as they were surpose to. Can you freeze these? thanks

      Can you give other variations and quantities to use for different types of bagels such as cinnamon sugar, etc.?

      I actually made these on Monday, I was going to make plain ones but decided to make the cinnamon raisin. Mine weren't as pretty but they did taste better than what you get at the store. Planning on making more this afternoon with more bread. Thankyou for posting this recipe.

      I love making my own bagels. This recipe looks like the one I use except mine has an egg in it (they're egg bagels). So easy to make your own and you can make them as big or small as you like. Thank you for the recipe.

      What are you using that has a dough hook?? Is it a stand mixer and you just stick the bowl underneath? and where can you get one?

      I have breadmaker that has a dough only function. It will mix all the ingredients together and let it raise, but doesn't bake it. Would it be possible to use this recipe in it?

      So, I asked about using the dough function on my breadmaker and decided to try it out. I'm doing it right now and I'll let you know how it comes out.
