Cranberry Orange Bagels
Total TimePrep: 30 min. + standing Bake: 20 min. + cooling
Fantastic bagel recipe! I like to substitute freshly grated nutmeg for the cloves. Wonderful flavor and texture.
This is my favorite bagel recipe. Wonderful right out of the oven. I discovered the cooled bagels stay softer when I add the "left-over" yolk to the bread machine ingredients; I do this with all my bagel recipes now.
LOVE LOVE LOVE THESE!!!!! THEY are amazing and I just love the taste and texture of them!!!
Never thought bagels would be this easy to make. I liked the cloves in this. It goes well with the orange zest. I'm glad to see that others have divided the dough into 12 portions and will try that next time. I also think I'll try dried blueberries with some lemon zest.
This is a great recipe for a flavorful bagel. I always use grated orange zest and dried cranberries from Trader Joe's.For those new to bagel baking, I'd like to point out one area of concern. You should drain the boiled bagels on a cloth towel or a cooling rack. If you drain your bagels on paper towels, you'll have to peel paper off the dough before cooking. Not fun. I also recommend boiling them in a cast iron pan instead of a dutch oven. Just remember to re-season your cast iron afterwards. :)
Absolutely delicious! So easy to make. Best bagels I ever made. The only change I made was to substitute the cloves with 1/8 tsp. of allspice. My husband couldn't believe they are made with white flour since he rarely will eat any bread pruduct not made with whole wheat flour.
<p>My first attempt at bagels and they were wonderful. I have another batch in the oven right now using fresh blueberries instead of the cranberries/orange. (The first batch I used cinnamon and raisins - they disappeared in NO time and my husband is not a big fan of bagel.) I plan to make several different batches for a family brunch next weekend.</p>
This was my first bagel recipe and i am quite pleased with the results. i have made it several times using the orange zest or substituting a little water with orange juice. Both worked well. I don't have a bread machine so i mixed and Kneaded the dough then let rise for an hour. I have also tried the maple nut spread which is good but prefer these bagels toasted with butter, you can really taste the cranberry and orange and just use the maple nut spread on plain bagels.
I'm hoping that there is a "learning curve" to make them look like the picture but the flavor is great! I did not add the additional water and even added two tablespoons of extra flour and my dough was still VERY STICKY. I will for sure try to perfect this recipe!
These are the first bagels I have ever made. They were AWESOME! I used orange juice instead of water. I will make these again.
