Pumpernickel Bagels Recipe Reviews - Allrecipes.com (Pg. 1)
Reviewed: Mar. 24, 2013
This recipe turned out very well. I added 1 tablespoon of brown sugar because I like my pumpernickel bagels a bit on the sweeter side, and it turned out well. Next time I may decrease the amount of ground coffee just because that flavor came through a bit strong for me, but it could also be the type of ground coffee I used. Also, with regards to the prep time, this definitely took me more like 45 min to prepare, and this wasn't my first time making bagels.

Great! Will make many more in the future. Used olive oil in place of vegetable oil and no coffee. Perfect! Dave & Sue

This was my first time making these and these bagels brought me back to NY although I think a few tweaks could be made. I added 2 TSP of vital wheat gluten to the mix. If you have an efficient oven like I do I would drop the temp to 425 and cook slightly longer (if you have a baking stone that is a definite PLUS. I (personally would add more caraway seeds) I would definitely do a 1 egg and 3 TBSP water egg wash over the bagels after they have dried from the boiling water. The bagel insides were slightly wet in some places but because they were hot they continued to cook during the cooling process so don't be alarmed if they seem a little "juicy" in some places. They seemed to be lacking in something taste-wise but I just cannot place what as I have not been to NY in many many many years to have a REAL pumpernickel bagel. They definitely have the denseness of a classic pump bagel which was most certainly a plus. Overall if I can figure out what I am lacking and refine my recipe slightly there is absolutely no reason why these bagels would not deserve 5 stars.

I added 1 Tbsp. of brown sugar and 2 tsp. gluten. I also egged the top. The texture is amazing and they taste delicious. But, the recipe does not make 13 bagels unless you are making them tiny. I made 12 and they are equivalent to size as the minis that get sold in the store.
