Awesome Whole Wheat Bagels


Favourite Whole Wheat Bagels recipe















2 packages yeast, active dry
2 cups water
2 tablespoons honey
2 cups whole-wheat flour
1 ½ teaspoons salt
3 cups all-purpose flour
3 ½ quarts water
1 teaspoon salt
sesame seeds


Dissolve yeast in warm water in a large bowl; let stand 5 minutes. Add honey, stirring well. Stir in 2 cups whole wheat flour and 1½ teaspoons salt, mix well.

Gradually stir in enough all-purpose flour to make a soft dough. Turn dough out onto a heavily floured surface (dough will be sticky), and knead until smooth and elastic (8 to 10 minutes).

Place dough in a well-greased bowl, turning to grease top. Cover dough, and let rise in a warm place (85 degrees), free from drafts, 1½ hours or until doubled in bulk.

Punch dough down, and divide dough into 12 equal pieces. Roll each into a smooth ball. Cut with 1-inch cutter or punch a hole in the center of each ball with a floured finger.

Gently pull dough away from center to make a 1- to 1½ inch hole. Place shaped bagels on lightly greased baking sheets. Cover and let rise 15 minutes. Broil bagels 5 inches from heat 2 minutes on each side or until lightly browned.

Bring water and 1 teaspoon salt to a boil in a large Dutch oven. Reduce heat, and simmer bagels 3 minutes on each side. Place bagels on lightly greased baking sheets. Sprinkle with sesame seeds; lightly press seeds into bagels. Bake at 425℉ (220℃) F for 20 to 25 minutes.
