Make Your Own Bagels in the Bread Machine
2 cups Flour
1 tablespoon Sugar
1 teaspoon Salt
3/4 cup Warm Water
1 1/2 teaspoons Active Dry Yeast
Place ingredients in your bread machine, making sure to place wet ingredients on the bottom and dry ingredients on the top, reserving the yeast for last. Select dough or manual cycle.
When cycle is finished, remove the dough from the machine and roll into 6 snakes, each about 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° 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 sugar for Cinnamon Raisin Bagels.
