easy whole wheat bagels

Submitted by: BKATHERINEH


Number of Servings: 8

Ingredients

    1 cup warm water
    3 cups whole wheat flour
    1 1/2 tbsp sugar
    1 1/2 teaspoon salt
    1 1/2 teaspoon yeast

Directions

For Bread Machine:
Place all ingredients in bread machine and set for normal white vegan bread. Let the machine knead once and then turn off the machine and set a timer for 20 minutes. When time is up remove dough and cut into eight equal peices. Roll each piece into a rope about 1 inch thick, wet ends and stick together. Put all bagels on a greased cookie sheet, cover and let rest for 15 minutes in a warm place. Fill a wok (or whatever you use) with about three inches of water. Place two tblsp of vegan sugar in this water and bring to a boil. After the bagels rise for the fifteen minutes add them to the boiling water for 1 minute turning them as they boil. Drain and place on the greased cookie sheet again ( sprinkle with toasted sesame seeds if you like). Bake at 550 for 15 minutes or until desired browning occures.

For the bread-machine-free:
mix 1/2 cup water [slightly warm], sugar, salt and yeast, let sit for 10+ min.mix wet ingredients with dry, forming a dough immediately make the bagels, don't let the dough rest (point: it rises as a bagel so you're not squishing the air out when you cut and roll dough into bagels)
let raw bagels sit for about 45 min.
Boil bagels for 2-3 minutes.
dip half of the bagel in a bowl of corn meal.
set on pan, let rest for another 45 min
cook at 475 F for 10 minutes, or until golden brown.

  • I made them without a bread machine and they tasted good, but they are very dense and heavy. I included the correct amount of yeast and they did rise some, so I am not sure why. Would love suggestions!! - 11/16/12

  • Easy and very tasty. I made them without the bread maker and found I needed 1 1/4 cup of water. I also kneaded for 5 minutes when mixing ingredients. - 10/8/12

  • Amazing and easy!!! I sprinkle them with cheese before baking and my kids just LOVE them! I make a couple batches at a time and freeze them for their lunches :) - 2/19/12

  • Not sure if it's because I went with the sans-bread machine method, but I found this dough very dry and difficult to work with. For someone who loves baking, I did not have fun making these, which was a let down. The flavor and texture is good, but I probably won't make them again. - 5/20/11

  • Oh I love bagels and this recipe. I made them as described nut I added 1/2 cup of wheat bran for extra fibre. They are a decent size for only 165 kcal and a great healthy choice for bagel fans like me. - 3/12/11
