Bae-goals – [Easy Homemade Bagels]

Last week I decided to tackle a new bake by making some homemade bagels.  I was surprised how easy they were to make!  The hardest part was boiling the bagels, especially since the largest pot I could find in my apartment could only boil 2 bagels at a time.  The recipe I used was called Homemade Pretzel Bagels from the Half Baked Harvest website.  I luckily still have some active yeast in my fridge, so I modified the recipe and used that instead of instant yeast.  I also used honey versus molasses, as I wanted to create multiple flavoured bagels versus just a salted pretzel bagel.  I was SUPER happy with how the bagels turned out!  They had a great chewy texture while still being soft and fluffy inside.

The only thing I would change when I make this recipe again would be to find a bigger pot to boil the bagels!  The 2 bagels squished up a bit in the pot and lost the perfect roundness I had shaped them into.  Oh and I would’ve made more cheese bagels & cinnamon brown sugar bagels instead of just the plain salted ones :)
