Real Homemade Bagels

Reviewed: Apr. 7, 2013
I tried making this three different times in one day, and they all failed miserably. The first time, I checked the recipe and tried using my bread machine to combine everything. The dough came out solid and crumbling, and it tore just trying to put it in the bowl to rise. The second time, I used my mixer and tried adding the flour gradually. By the second cup it was straining the motor on my mixer and I turned it out to knead by hand. I never got past two and a half cups of flour - once again it became many crumbling pieces and would not bond together or become elastic. The third time, I followed the directions exactly and put everything in the mixer at once. This time was the worst - after the dough became so stiff that the dough hook snapped in half, I figured it was time to surrender. Would not use this recipe again if someone paid me to. I use recipes to show me the right way to start, not as a starting point for figuring out a recipe. This was a terrible waste of time, ingredients, and money.
