Delicious homemade bagels. I use part whole wheat flour in place of the bread flour.

Recipe Ingredients for Homemade Bagels

1 cup warm water (110 degrees F)
1 package active dry yeast
1 tablespoon white sugar
1 1/2 teaspoons vegetable oil
3 1/2 cups bread flour
1 1/2 teaspoons salt
1 1/2 teaspoons white sugar

Recipe Directions for Homemade Bagels

  1. In large bowl, sprinkle yeast over warm water to soften; stir to dissolve. Add 2 tablespoons sugar, oil, 6 cups of flour, and salt. Mix thoroughly until the dough forms up and leaves the sides of the bowl. Turn dough out on floured board and knead, adding small amounts of flour as necessary. Bagel dough should be pretty stiff. Work in as much extra flour as you can comfortably knead. Knead until smooth and elastic, 12-15 minutes.

  2. Roll the dough into a ball, place it in a large oiled bowl, and turn to coat. Cover and let fully rise until an impression made with your finger remains and does not sink into the dough (about an hour).

  3. Punch down and break into 6 even pieces. Roll each piece into a ball and let sit under a damp cloth for about 20 minutes.

  4. While bagels are proofing, fill a 4 quart saucepan 2/3 full with cold water; add 1 tablespoon sugar and bring to a boil.

  5. To shape the bagels, lightly coat your hands with vegetable oil and gently press a dough round down with the palm of your hand. Find the center of the round and push a finger through to make a hole.

  6. Swing the bagel around your finger to widen the hole. The walls should be approximately 1-inch thick and the hole 2 inches wide. After each bagel is shaped, place it back underneath the moist towel.

  7. When ready to cook, drop 2 or 3 bagels at a time into the boiling water and wait until they rise to the top. Cook for a total of 1 minute, turning once.

  8. Carefully lift each bagel out with a slotted spoon or skimmer. Drain momentarily. Turn into a dish with topping, if desired. Evenly space bagels on 2 nonstick baking pans or very lightly oiled baking sheets.

  9. Bake with steam in a preheated 500 degree F (260 degrees C) oven until well-browned, about 20 minutes. Turn bagels over when the tops begin to brown, and continue baking until done.
