Homemade Bagels

Many people eat bagels every day for breakfast, lunch or as a snack. This means people’s bagel stashes can run out quickly, but I have a solution to that. If you follow this delicious recipe, you can end up with bagels in any flavor you wish. If you would like differently flavored bagels. all you have to do is roll in what you want, like brown sugar and cinnamon or blueberries, when you roll the dough into a tube.



2 ½ cups bread flour

½ tsp instant dry yeast

1 Tbsp granulated sugar

1 tsp salt

1 cup lukewarm water

1 tsp granulated sugar in a large pot of water (to boil)


Mix together flour, sugar and salt in large mixing bowl. Add yeast and water, knead together with hands or with the bread hook attachment on a mixer until sticky and manageable.

Take dough out onto a flat, floured surface. Knead with hands until the dough is no longer lumpy and powdery.Add sprinkles of water or flour as necessary. The dough will get elasticy but pretty stiff.

Roll out dough into a tube shape and cut into 1 inch sections.

Poke a hole in the center of each piece with your finger.

Place bagels together and cover with plastic wrap for about 15 minutes.

While waiting for bagels to rise, fill a large pot with water and a teaspoon of sugar and bring to a simmer.

Preheat oven to 375F.

When dough is ready, carefully drop them into the water and let them simmer for about 15 seconds on each side, flipping them only once.

The bagels should float when ready. Use a slotted spoon to remove bagels and place them on a baking sheet.

When all the bagels are boiled and on the baking sheet, bake for 15 minutes or until golden brown.
