Bread Machine Basic Bagels


An easier bread maker bagel recipe; use your bread machine to learn how to make bagels; fresh, warm, soft, and chewy.















¾ cup water
2 cups bread flour
2 tablespoons brown sugar
¾ teaspoon salt
teaspoon yeast, active dry


Sure, bread machines are so 1990's, when folks still work pagers and watched Home Improvement, but if you've got a bread maker, pull it off that shelf and dust it off because it helps you make your own bagels easier.

This easy homemade bagel recipe demonstrates how to make deliciously chewy bagels in your own kitchen with just a few basic pantry staples.

  1. Add all of the ingredients to your bread machine following your manufacturer's instructions. Use the dough kneading setting if you have one, or stop and remove the dough from the bread machine after the first knead, which typically takes about 20 to 30 minutes.

  2. Form the dough into balls, gently pressing your thumb through the center of each ball and gently stretch into a bagel shape. Place formed dough, covered with a towel, in a draft-free location, on a lightly floured baking sheet to allow to rise, about 15 minutes or more, until nearly doubled in size as desired.

  3. While bagels and rising, add three quarts (liters) of water to a large pot or dutch oven, add one tablespoon of sugar, and bring to the boil. Drop test dough (see hints below).

  4. Using a slotted spoon, lower 2 to 3 bagels into the boiling water. Boil the bagels for 30 seconds, flip over and boil for another 30 seconds. Remove, draining well, to a wire rack and cool for 1 minute. Brush with some beaten egg yolk and sprinkle with sesame or poppy seeds or everything bagel seed mix as desired.

  5. Bake at 400℉ (200℃) F on a cornmeal sprinkled baking sheet sprinkled until golden - about 15 minutes.
