 Ingredients List

  • ----------------------------MM BY HELEN PEAGRAM----------------------------
  • 1 ts Sugar
  • 1 c Warm water
  • 1 tb Dry yeast
  • 2 Eggs
  • 1 tb Vegetable oil
  • 3 1/2 c All-purpose flour (approx)
  • 2 ts Salt


16 c Water
2 tb Sugar

1/2 c Sesame or poppy seeds
1 Egg, beaten

1. In a large bowl, dissolve 1 tsp sugar in water. Sprinkle yeast over top.
Let stand for 10 minutes til frothy. Whisk in eggs with oil. Beat in 2 cups
of the flour, sugar and salt until smooth. Gradually stir in enough of the
remaining flour to make a soft but not sticky dough.

2. Turn onto a floured surface and knead for 8-10 minutes til smooth and
elastic and dough springs back when poked with finger. Place in a greased
bowl, turning to grease all over. Cover with plastic wrap and tea towel.
Let rise in warm place for 1 -1 1/2 hours or til doubled in bulk.

3. Punch down; knead several times. Divide into 12 equal pieces. Roll each
into a 12 inch rope, covering pieces with towel while working.

4. Bring ends of dough together, overlapping by about 1 inch and
stretching overlap around other end to meet underneath. Pinch firmly to
seal. NOTE: Unless ends are pinched together very firmly, they will come
apart in the water.

5. Poaching liquid. In a wide saucepan, bring water to a boil; add sugar.
Slip bagels into water, 3-4 at a time; cook over medium heat for 1 minute.
Using slotted spoon or spatula, remove bagels to well greased or parchment
lined baking sheets.

6. Glaze: Place sesame seeds in a dish. Brush bagels with egg. Dip
bagels in seeds. Return to baking sheet. Bake at 400 F for 20-25 minutes
or til tops are golden and bottoms sound hollow when tapped. Transfer to a
rack to cool.


Whole wheat Cinnamon Raisin Bagels: Substitute 1 cup whole wheat flour for
all purpose. Increase 2 Tb sugar to 1/4 cup. Stir in 2 ts cinnamon along
with eggs. After punching down dough, thoroughly knead in 1 cup raisins.
Omit sesame seeds.
