A few weeks back I posted this picture on instagram. Many of you lovelies thought I had caved and bought some store bought bagels. Nope just homemade...with love I might add. Libby always tells me about my "secrete" ingredient of love. She says it is her favorite :) Now that you know my "secrete" ingredient, which I put in all my recipes, let me tell you about some delicious bagels. I made these a week or so ago and they were Delish..... with a capital D. They had a perfect crust, with a chewy inside. They were exactly how a bagel should be.Want to make some for your sweet family today?

Here's how.....

Basic Chewy New York – Style Bagels

1 1/2 cups water
1 tsp salt
1 tbl dark brown sugar
4 cups white flour
2 1/4 tsp dry yeast

- place all ingredients in your bread machine in the order specified in your bread machine owner's manual. Select manual dough and allow the cycle to run. Allow dough to rest for 5 minutes, once dough cycle is completed.
- Lightly dust work surface with flour. Shape dough into a 12-inch long cylinder. Cut into 12 1-inch pieces. Roll each piece into a 10-inch long rope.
-Form each rope into a circle, overlapping ends slightly. Fold right end over left end. Tuck under and pinch gently to hold together. Place bagels on baking pans, sprinkled with cornmeal. Cover and let rise 30 minutes.

  1. I was looking for a bagel recipe for a while. They are one of the things that I miss most about the US. Here in Germany they can be bought only in selected shops (read: expensive) and they are never fresh.I will give it a try for sure!


  2. This looks fantasic! Do you have any recommendations on a budget friendly bread maker?
    Thanks :)


    1. Check out your local thrift stores. That is where I found mine for under $15 :)

  3. I cannot wait to try this recipe!! These bagels look so delicious :-)


  4. Okay, you are a mind reader! I was totally pondering the possibility of bread maker bagels yesterday and, WAH-LAH, there you go again with an awesome recipe post! I cannot wait to try these, they look delicious. :)


  5. I tried it and my family devoured them immediately. I always thought you had to boil bagels first. So, I was surprised how easy this recipe was to follow. They came out perfect. Thank you for the information.

  6. We are making these tonight to have for Easter morning. I hope I did everything right!
    Thanks so much

  7. Was looking for something fun to make for Easter breakfast when I saw this post. I put cinnamon and ground flax in the egg wash and just took them out of the oven. The whole house smells amazing! Thanks for the idea :-)

  8. Try San Fransisco Herb Company for poppy seed. They have a 1 pound container for almost the same price as that little tiny container that you get from the store (so almost 16 times cheaper!). There is a minimum $35 order from them, but you could always go in with someone else on the order, too. They have mustard seed at that price, and cream of tarter, too. I like to make poppyseed muffins as well and this makes them so inexpensive!

    1. I will look that up. I love cooking with poppy seeds too.

  9. What a delicious bagels, I will try to make it! I must to buy good web hosting for my page, a friend of mine recommended me or have you ever heard about them. i have checked there web site and it seems that they offer chip prices and good performances unlimited web hosting space and unlimited bandwidth.

  10. I want to try making these yummy looking bagels but I do not have a bread machine. Do you know the steps without the bread machine? Thanks :)

    1. The gals at A beautiful mess have a great tutorial for making bagels without a machine. Check it out.

  11. thanks for the recie! i just made some :) mine rose so much that they ended up with no holes in them! lol they just look like little puff balls instead!! haha taste good though :)

  12. thanks for the recipe! i just made some and they rose so much that they ended up with no holes in them and looked like little puff balls instead!! haha still tasted good though :)

  13. I am so trying this recipe right now!

  14. I am so trying this recipe right now! Thank you for sharing :)

  15. Made these the other morning. The recipe was really easy. Thanks for the yummy recipe!

  16. Made these today and posted a photo on my blog. As soon as I figure out how to link back using an iPad I will share a link to your recipe. We went with plain bagels so we could use butter and jelly on them.
