Homemade Bagels Recipe

I always wanted to make my own bagels, so I searched to find a recipe I could try. For variation and flavor, I sometimes add cinnamon and raisins or honey and sesame seeds to the dough.

Ingredients

  • 1

    teaspoon active dry yeast

  • 1-1/4

    cups warm milk (110° to 115°)

  • 1/2

    cup butter, softened

  • 2

    tablespoons sugar

  • 1

    teaspoon salt

  • 1

    egg yolk

  • 3-3/4 to 4-1/4

    cups all-purpose flour

  • Sesame or poppy seeds, optional

Directions

In a large bowl, dissolve yeast in warm milk. Add the butter, sugar, salt and egg yolk; mix well. Stir in enough flour to form a soft dough. Turn onto a floured surface; knead until smooth and elastic, about 6-8 minutes. Place in a greased bowl, turning once to grease top. Cover and let rise in a warm place until doubled, about 1 hour. Punch dough down. Shape into 12 balls. Push thumb through centers to form a 1-1/2-in. hole. Stretch and shape dough to form an even ring. Place on a floured surface. Cover and let rest for 10 minutes; flatten bagels slightly. Fill a Dutch oven two-thirds full with water; bring to a boil. Drop bagels, two at a time, into boiling water. Cook for 45 seconds; turn and cook 45 seconds longer. Remove with a slotted spoon; drain well on paper towels. Sprinkle with sesame or poppy seeds if desired. Place 2 in. apart on greased baking sheets. Bake at 400° for 20-25 minutes or until golden brown. Remove from pans to wire racks to cool.
