Chewy Breadmachine Bagels

What you need: 

1 1/2 teaspoons of yeast
2 cups of all-purpose flour
1 tablespoon of sugar
1 teaspoon of salt
3/4 cup of very warm water

What you do: 

Place ingredients in your bread machine. Select dough or manual cycle. When cycle is finished, remove the dough from the machine and roll into 6 snakes about a 10 inches long. Press the ends tightly together to form a doughnut shape. Bring a large pot of water to a boil. Place bagels in the boiling water for 2 minutes. (The longer they boil the chewier they are.) Remove from the water and place on a lightly greased cookie sheet. Bake at 350 degrees for 20 minutes until golden in color.
Try: half all-purpose and half whole wheat flour. Add a teaspoon of cinnamon, 1/4 cup of raisins and an extra tablespoon of vegan sugar for Cinnamon Raisin Bagels

the few that rised before they were boiled were better than the ones that didn't.  i think i'm going to let them rise for maybe half an hour next time :)


these were really really good! i used 1 cup of white flour and 1 cup of whole wheat...i will definitely make them again  ;D


Being the Health Snob that I am, I have unnaturally vehement aversion to white flour.  :P  Could I do this with all whole-wheat if I added some gluten? How much, do you think? I was thinking I may try it with three tablespoons or so. Wish me luck! Oh, and another thing; do you let the bagels rise before boiling them? It seems that you would, as there is no rising times mentioned anywhere else. I suppose I need to get more familiar with my bread machine. :P


This is an amazing recipe ^_^ (I'm eating the bagels as I type) I made garlic dill bagels with this recipe but adding 1 tsp of dried dill and 1 tsp of garlic powder. Will be experimenting more with this recipe. But definitely will not go back to buying bagels.


Another variation:  double the recipe, add 1/2 cup dried cranberries and the grated rind from one orange.  In a double recipe, you can use 3 1/2 cups King Arthur white whole wheat and 1/2 cup white flour and really up the nutrition value, but it still tastes great.


This was a pretty nice recipe. I think I left it in the water a little too long, but other than that I think I would only need to prefect the size and joining the ends. Howe'ver, I found that this recipe is also at this link:
