Homemade Cinnamon Raisin bagels take III

I have made bagels twice before.  Both times i used the same recipe and they were definitely yummy but i was looking for something a little less dense and a little more flakey and light! I searched and searched until i came across this recipe.

  • 4  cups bread flour
  • 2 (.25 ounce) packages active dry yeast
  • 1 1/2 cups warm water
  • 3 tablespoons white sugar
  • 1 tablespoon salt
  • 1 tablespoon white sugar


Combine the flour and yeast in a mixing bowl.

In a separate bowl combine water sugar and salt, mix and the pour into mixing bowl.

Beat for 30 seconds and then scrape down edges.  Beat for 3 minutes more and then start adding remaining flour 1 cup at a time.  Mixing well between additions.  It will be drippy in the begining

Once All the flour is added, flour a work surface and start kneading by hand until it is smooth and elastic.  This is the step where i added the cinnamon and sugar.

When done, divide into as many bagels as you want based on the size.  I wanted nice BIG and JUMBO bagels so i only made 5 but you could easily make more! they’re HUGE!  Divide the dough and then start rolling out each ball to look like a log and then attach the ends to make a circle!  When your done place bagels under a cloth for 20 minutes.  While you are waiting put a big pot of water on the stove so it can boil.  Add 1 TBSP of sugar to this water!

When the time c0mes put the bagels in the boiling water for 7 minutes, turning them over half way through.  Then dry the bagels off and place them on a greased cookie sheet and sprinkle with cinnamon.  Place them in the oven for 30 minutes at 375*

They came out Beautiful!
