My granddaughter has celiac's disease, so I can't use a regular flour. Is it possible to use gluten free flour instead?
Hi, Colleen. We would not suggest substituting with gluten-free flour. However, if you search online for “gluten-free bagel recipe” you would be able to find something to make for your granddaughter.
Hi, I really want to try this recipe. I don't eat eggs, so I am wondering whether I can substitute the egg yoke with something.
Hi, Vidya. We have not made this recipe without the egg so we can’t guarantee the results. We can offer suggestions for substituting for yokes and egg whites. To substitute for an egg yoke, combine 1 tablespoon of vinegar with 1 teaspoon of baking soda. We’ve learned this is a popular way to sub for eggs in vegan cooking. And this may surprise you—you can substitute egg whites with the water in a can of chickpeas! Use 2 tablespoons of liquid and whip as you would an egg white. Good luck!
I’ve been wanting to make these but all I have is rapid rise yeast. Can I still use that? If so, can I just leave out the letting it rise the first time? Thank you for all the great recipes!!
Thank you so much. My sister and I actually made these together. They are AMAZING!! We followed the directions to a t. We both agreed we would not ever buy a bagel from a store again.
I love this recipe. This morning I'm going to make bagels using this recipe for the 3rd time. Dumped all my other bagel recipes in favor of this one.
Thank you for sharing! It’s great to know this has tested out well. We appreciate this, on behalf of the community of cooks!
WOW! What a fantastic recipe. Lots of hard work goes into this but well worth it. I have never been a bread baker but this one I will do again and again. Just follow the instructions and you won't go wrong. My hubby was really surprised.
