HB in 5: Whole Wheat Cinnamon Cranberry Bagels

Bagels.  I love bagels.  Until I spied Kamran Siddiqi's [The Sophisticated Gourmet] bagel post, I didn't think it was possible to make myself!  I've been very, very behind in my efforts at HB in 5 so when I saw that Cinnamon Raisin Bagels was next on the list, I had to clear my schedule!

I mixed up a batch of the WW Master Dough and allowed it to rise while I was off playing in San Diego for the day.  I love this recipe - it's so low maintenance and as unorganized as my kitchen is, it still only took me about 10 minutes to mix the batch up! Don't get me wrong, I love kneading dough just as much but when you don't have the time, this one pretty much makes itself!

It's really easy to make! Roll out the dough to a 1/4 of an inch, then sprinkle cinnamon and sugar over the dough, then add cranberries.  Roll dough to combine mixture, shaping into a ball. Pull off 3 ounce balls and shape into balls.  Poke a hole into the ball and stretch. Boil for a few minutes, place on a tray and bake!

Ok, I'm not sure what I did wrong but mine looks a little like a bagel chip. But let me tell you...It was FANTASTIC!
Yum. Breakfast is going to be great tomorrow. 


  1. Your bagels look pretty good to me.
    I made bagels too but I wasn't too happy with the way mine turned out. Have made much better ones before.

  2. femalechef: thank you!!

    Aparna: i was thinking the same thing - I wondered if I did anything wrong.

  3. Mine looked kind of like bagel chips also...very flat. I think it's because the no-knead makes them so wet. Sigh.

    I love your dried cranberry substitution!

  4. Your bagelsnlook way betternthan mine. Nice job.

  5. Those bagels look delicious! I never thought about using cranberries. Yummy!

  6. Mine were less than beautiful but they certainly tasted great! I love the idea of using cranberries instead of raisins.

  7. I love cranberries, great substition. My bagels were not the prettiest, but they tasted good. Yours look great.

  8. Yours is the first ones that look good! I just can't get the dough to work. Hey, mind if I come out to San Diego to bake them with you?

    San Diego AND Bagels? Wow, you live in paradise!

  9. The taste is what counts. I made bagels with another HBIn5 dough a while back and loved the results. Great way to get in some bagels and rather easy to make. Yours look fine to me. Love the cranberries that you can see in the cut open one. Delicous!

  10. So proud of you. I haven't made bagels before and tip my hat to those of you who did. I agree with Petra, taste is what counts!

  11. I haven't had time to bake this month so I am behind on the assingments. Love the cranberries in the bagels and they really don't look so bad. Bagels are not the fastest, easiest bread to make.
