Homemade Bagels

I just got done writing a post about how much my children love you are lucky enough to get a post about how much my children love bagels. Seeing a theme here? They are their mothers children and know a good carb filled breakfast when they see one. I am also slightly obsessed with bagels at the moment myself.

I have been buying our bagels in bulk and freezing them so that they last the entire month. A friend of mine however has been making homemade bagels and I thought I would give it a peak to see how hard it would be to do myself. Turns out it is seriously easy, and MUCH cheaper to make you own.

12 mini bagles from the grocery store: $2.22
12 mini bagels made from scratch: $0.76

Kind of a "what was I thinking" moment for me! So we are gonna give making homemade bagels a shot!

  • 1 tsp Active dry yeast ($0.02)

  • 2 Tbsp sugar ($0.08)
  • 1 tsp salt ($0.01)
  • 1 Tbsp baking powder ($0.04)
  • 3 3/4 cups all-purpose flour ($0.33)

  1. Preheat over to 425.
  2. Warm milk to almost boiling. Add yeast and let dissolve.
  3. In a large bowl, add sugar, salt, baking powder and flour. Mix well.
  4. Add vinegar and oil to milk/ yeast. 
  5. Add your wet ingredients to your dry ingredients and mix thoroughly.
