You can make the bagel dough ahead and then cook first thing Christmas morning …. just an idea to add to your thoughts for Christmas!
Who doesn’t love a warm blueberry bagel with butter? It’s pretty tasty!
My celiac son and I both loved bagels before celiac diagnosis. We both have tried many gluten free bagels over the years, and most seem to be like a big bun with a hole in the middle …. not our idea of a bagel. There is one brand that we like but the flavour it comes in is not our favourite. I tried for years to make gluten free bagels, with not a lot of success.
I have spent this past ‘covid year’ trying to see if I could combine a few different recipes and also threw in my own twist … and voila I think I truly have a good gluten free bagel. Or at least my family thinks so!
It has a nice crust, a soft inside and my celiac teen approves. Actually, I shared it with another gluten free teen and she gave her approval as well. So, two gluten free teens approvals … I see that as a win! I also must give Sue from the Celiac’s Podcast credit for a tip that she gave me when I was talking to her one day about my frustrations with bagels. She told me to freeze my dough, and THAT made a huge difference. So, thank you Sue. She also makes two different varieties of bagels that you can check out at Sue’s Gluten Free Baking.
Gluten Free baking can be tricky, at times and I think that there are some gluten free baked goods that need more than a printed recipe. Sometimes it helps to SEE how to do something and have explanation to be successful. Therefore, I have some video demo classes that you can sign up for and they are yours to watch for 30 days. You will also have the recipe card.
There is a MINI GF Baking Course on my site that includes the bagels. I do hope you sign-up to try these bagels… and the other recipes! What is in the Mini GF Baking Course?
This MINI GF Baking Course has 5 video demos/classes and recipe cards that are available IMMEDIATELY for you to watch and in any order that works for you. If you get interrupted it is no problem, as the video demos and recipe cards will be yours to refer back to for 30 days. These classes will equip the home gluten free baker with tips to be successful in your own kitchen. This is what you get in the MINI GF Course;
- 1:1 GF Flour Video Demo – GF/DF option/Egg Free (12 min & 43 sec)
- Pumpkin Date Muffin Video Demo – GF/DF (17 min & 35 sec)
- Nana’s Chewy Ginger Cookie Video Demo – GF/DF (13 min & 40 sec)
- BBQ or Oven Pizza Crust Video Demo – GF/DF/Egg Free (11 min & 22 sec)
- BAGEL’s Video Demo – GF (DF Option) (16 min & 17 sec)
- RECIPE CARDS for all of the above video demos.
THAT is a total of over 70 minutes of instructional time AND all the recipe cards.
One last thought, if you want to keep your fingers when cutting the bagels … or your kids/teens fingers! We use a bagel cutter.
