I don’t know about you, but I love bagels. Cinnamon raisin to be exact and that’s why I am sharing my cinnamon raisin bagel recipe with you today!
Bagels can seem like a lot of work, first mixing the dough, then letting it raise, beating it down, forming the bagels, boiling the bagels and finally baking them. Okay, so they aren’t as easy as making bread. But honestly? From start to finish (and I grind my own flour), not counting raising and baking time, it took me less than 45 minutes total.
I know from expirience that the more you make something, the faster you become. I have a pretty good idea that in time it will only take me 30 minutes or less to make my bagels.
So, time consuming factor out of the way, why bother making your own bagels? Well, let’s see:
- You are in charge of the ingredients and can choose higher quality.
- Made with whole grains, these are far better for you.
- No names on the ingredient list that you don’t understand.
- No preservatives.
- Very inexpensive.
