Scrumptious Spring Sweepstakes Entry

Here is a delicious recipe submitted to us from Tammy! These delicious bagels were inspired by her families’ love for the prior store bought type. She said that her family loved them so much, that she just couldn’t afford to keep buying as many as they were eating so- she was inspired to create a homemade version.

Cinnamon Raisin Bagels
1 cup raisins soaked in hot water for 5 minutes; pat dry with paper towel
1 1/2 cups lukewarm water
1/4 cup light brown sugar
2 TB honey
4 teaspoon active dry yeast
1 TB canola oil
1 1/4 cups whole wheat flour
4 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1 TB kosher salt
3/4 cups flour
1 large egg white for brushing bagel
Take lukewarm water, brown sugar, honey, yeast, and oil in a large bowl; mix until yeast is dissolved then add wheat flour, cinnamon, salt, and raisins. Stir in about 2 1/2 cups of flour to form a soft dough. Put out on lightly floured surface, knead in enough flour to form a smooth and firm ball. Cover and let rest for 10 minutes. Divide the dough into 12- 2 ounce pieces. Roll each into a 10 inch rope, pinch ends together and set aside, let rest for 20 minutes.
Bring to boil 6 quarts of water and 2 TB light brown sugar. Cook each bagel for 45 seconds transfer to a clean towel. On a cookie sheet lined with parchment paper brush each with egg white bake for 15 minutes then flip over and cook for 5 more minutes. Cool and store in a tightly covered bowl. Serve with butter or cream cheese.
