Blueberry Bagels

I made this recipe on a whim. 

It was ok, not the greatest thing ever but ok. The bagels, once all finished had quite a yeasty taste. A bit too strong. It was the quickest recipe that I could find. Probably shouldn't use a recipe only because it is fast....

blueberry bagels

1 package of active dry yeast

2 tbsp (28g) sugar

1 1/4 cups (295ml) warm water

3 1/2 cups (437g) flour

1 1/2 tsp salt

1 cup of blueberries {tossed in 1/4 cup of flour}


Dissolve the yeast and sugar in 1/2 cup of warm water, let rest 5 minutes. Mix together the salt and the flour - making a well in the center. Add the yeast and the additional water to the flour. Gently fold in the berries.

Knead until you have a soft and elastic dough. Cover the dough and let rise until doubled, about 1 -  1 1/2 hour. Divide the dough into 8 balls. Press into the center of each ball forming a hole, and stretch to form the bagel shape. Let rest 30 minutes.

Oven 425F.

Bring a large pot of water to a boil.

Boil the bagels - 1 or 2 at a time for 3 - 4 minutes, they will float to the top when ready. Place on baking sheet and bake 20 minutes.
