homemade bagels blow grocery store/big name chain bakery bagels out of the water!
haha! get it? cuz you boil bagels before you bake them... ok, a joke you have to explain is never a good joke.
today, i used Emma's recipe for everything bagels with a couple differences...
- instead of bread flour, i used 2 1/2 cups whole wheat flour i had milled this morning and 1 cup plain old white flour.
- i didn't have all the same seeds she had, so i topped mine with poppy seeds, pumpkin seeds and a scant sprinkle of sea salt, i.e. what i had in the cupboard.
let me just say, bagels might be my new favorite bread item to make from scratch. next try will be a sweet twist. i'm thinking cinnamon and sugar goodness!
what have you been baking?
