2 1/2 c
bread flour
1/2 tsp
instant dry yeast
1 Tbsp
1 tsp
1 c
luke-warm water
1 tsp
1 large
pot of water (for boiling)

How to Make Bagels


  • 1In a large bowl, lightly mix together flour, sugar, and salt.
  • 2Add yeast and water, then knead together ingredients with hands to create a sticky but manageable dough.
  • 3Take dough out onto flat floured surface.
  • 4Knead dough firmly with your hands until the dough is no longer lumpy and powdery, approximately 15min.
  • 5Add sprinkles of water or flour as necessary to keep the dough manageable — it will get elastic but pretty stiff.
  • 6Roll out dough into long tube and cut 1 inch sections as seen in picture.
  • 7Use your finger to poke a hole into the center of each piece.
  • 8Cover the bagels with plastic wrap and let rest for about 15 minutes (30-40 min during winter time).
  • 9In the meantime, fill a large pot with water and a teaspoon of sugar and bring to a simmer.
  • 10Preheat oven to 375F.
  • 11When the dough is ready, carefully drop them into the water (doing batches of 2 at a time) and let them simmer for about 15 seconds on each side, flipping them only once.
  • 12The bagels should float when ready.
  • 13Use a slotted spoon to remove bagels and place onto a baking sheet.
  • 14When all bagels are boiled and no baking sheet, bake for approx. 15 minutes, or until golden brown.
