Bagels Bagels Bagels!

The past few days I have made massive amount of bagels. They’re probably one of my favorite, and most successful, breads I’ve ever baked. I don’t think I’ve ever met anyone who doesn’t like bagels.

The great thing about homemade bagels is that there’s very few ingredients, and making them yourself means you know exactly what’s in them, if you’re the kind of person worried about ingredients and preservatives.

I got my bagel recipe here from Emma at A Beautiful Mess. I adapted the recipe slightly for the cinnamon raisin bagels, and added 1/2 cup brown sugar, 1/2 cup raisins, and 3 tablespoons cinnamon before adding the yeast mixture.

My favorite are by far the cheese bagels, but the cinnamon raisin bagels are a close second! I added a bit of salt to the sesame bagels, but they ended up tasting more like pretzels than a bagel. Still, super delicious.

In case you’re wondering, I didn’t make all of these bagels for myself. We’re sending some to friends and family tomorrow (that is, if they last through the night).

The most satisfying part of the bagel process.

Happy Father’s Day everyone!
