I have a Toastmaster Bread Maker that I have had for almost 9 years and I decided to pull it out the other day. The original motivation was pizza crust. Then I started looking through the recipe book that came with it and decided to make some bagels also. I had used this recipe before and remembered liking them.
They are very basic. Just water, sugar, salt, bread flour and yeast. The bread maker does all the work to make the dough. Then I made the dough into 8 bagels and let them rise. Boiled them in sugar water and brushed them with an ener-g egg replacer 'egg' and topped half with poppy seeds and the other half with sesame seeds. They then go in the oven for 25 minutes.
The results are yummy bagels that I've been enjoying for my breakfasts.
I have a husband, two young boys, two dogs and a pet sitting business. With all that going on, one of my favorite places to be is in the kitchen cooking and baking vegan food. I became vegan in 1993 and even though I am not as strict about it as I used to be, it is what I love to cook and what I want to share here.
