Bagels - January Project

Posted by - Cindy



I am so excited to be a part of this baking group!!

For my bagels I used the recipe found at bakingbites.com. Although I followed the recipe as written, I was very disappointed with the results. They certainly are no threat to the local Jewish deli!!

I was looking for that crispy outside & chewy inside. These did not have that. Sadly, there was no crispy outside.

Sorry yours didn't turn out. The recipe Vivian posted produced a pretty crispy outside if you get a chance to make bagel again. Of course you have to eat them right away since storing them in plastic baggies will soften them a bit.

To also produce and perhaps keep the crispier crust... try coating them with egg white before baking. I'm thinking though, that because of the type of bread it is, unless eaten right away the crust will soften as you store it.

Oh, too bad. They look great to me, but I'm sorry these didn't work out the way you wanted them to. There's always next time! After all, cooking and baking are all trial and error! :)
