These homemade bagels are the best. These are made without yeast so no proofing needed.
You can make these on the weekend and have them on your lunch table in no time. Wow, your family with the best bagels they ever tasted. Are you ready to learn the best bagels recipe? Let’s get started!
To make these easy bagels you need a limited amount of ingredients. Because you do not need to proof the dough this will save you at least half an hour.
I do not know about you but not having to wait longer than needed can be a great thing especially when it concerns a warm bagel.
Another tip that is very useful to know when making bagels is do not over-knead the dough.
Opposed to bread dough where you have to knead the dough until elastic this is not what you for your bagels. Put the dough together and you are in business.
Most bagel recipes call for cooking the dough in boiling water. The reason why the dough is usually boiled is to give it a hard and chewy exterior.
The good news is this easy bagel recipe doesn’t require any boiling but still will give you a crunchy crust and a soft interior.
Easy bagel ingredients
To make this bagel recipe you need a limited number of ingredient. You need the following on your grocery shopping or from your kitchen pantry:
- Self-raising flour
- 1 cup non-fat Greek yogurt, not regular yogurt, it will be too sticky
- 1 egg white, beaten (whole egg works fine too)
Want to make your own self-raising flour then you need:
- All-purpose flour or whole wheat
- Baking powder
How to make homemade bagels
To make this recipe you start with the dough. Take a large bowl and add the self-raising flour in the bowl.
If you want to make your own self-raising flour and combine the flour, baking powder, and salt.
Then add the yogurt and mix with it with the flour with a wooden spoon until thoroughly combined. The dough will look a little crumbly.
Take a board and dust it with flour. Put the dough on the board and knead it for about 15 turns. The dough should not be sticky and no dough should be on your hands.
Now preheat oven to 375℉ and line a baking tray with parchment paper.
Then divide the dough into 4 equal parts. Roll a ball of dough in a thick string about 1 inch and shape into a doughnut shape when you join the ends so you get a bagel.
Whisk the egg in a small bowl. Then brush the egg wash on the bagel and sprinkle your favorite seasoning on top.
Then bake the bagels in the middle of the oven for 25 minutes. Let cool slightly before serving.
Of course, you can eat your bagel plain but they taste even better when you put your favorite toppings on. Looking for some inspiration take a look at the following toppings:
- White sesame seeds
- Black sesame seeds
- Popping sees
- Everything but the bagel seasoning
- Grated cheese
- Flakes of salt
Store your bagels
When you make bagels you can make the dough ahead of time and keep it in the fridge.
Once you have baked them there are a number of ways to store them:
- Outside of the fridge – store them in an air-tight container or ziplock bag for up to two days
- Freezer – you can freeze them for up to 3 months. Put them in a freezer bag or freezer-friendly container. Thaw before using preferably no microwave to keep the original crust. When you thaw in the microwave the bagel will go soft.
