Welcome back! I’ve had quite a bit of a break from making recipes, and to be honest I hadn’t even realized how long it had been since I’ve posted something, aside from my marathon update. This summer has been crazy busy and I’ve just let myself enjoy every little bit of it.
This is a recipe I made earlier this year but never posted. I was trying to find an alternative way to make homemade bagels that did not require the dough to sit in the fridge over night and take over a day and a half to make. After exploring some recipes online and making a few personalized touches I came up with this lil recipe for a simple, 30 min bagel using my favourite, the donut pan.
Easy 30 min Homemade Bagels
What you’re gonna need..
- Donut pan
- 2 cups whole wheat flour
- 1 tsp salt
- 1 tsp baking powder
- 1 tsp baking soda
- 2 tsp coconut sugar
- 2 eggs
- 1 cup of buttermilk
- 1/2 cup melted, unsalted butter
- Some oats to top it off with – Or the Trader Joes everything but the bagel seasoning (which unfortunately I did not have!!)
- 1/2 cup light whipped cream cheese (easier to mix)
- a handful of chopped chives
- salt & pepper
- 1 garlic clove finely chopped or grated
How to make the magic happen..
First, preheat that oven to 350 C
- Grease your donut pan with some cooking spray (love the coconut oil spray) and set aside.
- In a large bowl mix together your dry ingredients (flour, baking powder, baking soda, salt & sugar). In another bowl, mix: eggs, buttermilk and only 4 tablespoons of your melted butter.
- Combine the wet ingredients into your dry ingredients bowl but make sure not to over mix.
- Spoon in your mixture into the donut pan. Fill it up to the top and make sure to pat it down to ensure the least amount of air pockets. Keep in mind that as the mixture bakes it will take the form of the pan so don’t worry about it looking too perfect!
- Bake for about 10-12 min. Since it can only take a quick minute to go from not fully baked to baked keep an eye out. Use the tooth pick test to see if the mixture sticks to the tooth pick. If it doesn’t, you’re good to take them out!
- Make sure to keep the bagels in the baking pan out of the oven for about 5 minutes. This ensures that they will not stick to the pan. Once your bagels are cooled, dip them in the remaining butter and season with the oats or Trader Joes Everything but the Bagel seasoning.
- Cream Cheese: Just mix in all those ingredients and voila! Top those bagels with your fresh cream cheese and you’re good to go.
