Each year, I try to make delicious baked goods. Last year, it was these Croissants. Other years, it has been bagels. Other years it’s been both! I have a niece AND a nephew this year so nobody got time to be whipping up bagels on Christmas morning. But, if you’re lucky enough, you’ll be awake at 5am with all the time in the world to bake.

If that’s not you though, I got your back. Half of these bagels are done when you go to bed on Christmas eve. All you need to do is a little poach and bake and you’re away! I will serve them with some cinnamon maple butter but I am 100% in favour of these Bacon, Egg and Cheese Bagels.

Christmas Morning Bagels
Serves 12
Write a review
  1. 400g plain flour
  2. 2 tablespoons of sugar
  3. 3 teaspoons of yeast
  4. 2 tablespoons of salt
  5. 1 1/2- 2 cups warm water
  6. 1 egg and sesame seeds to finish
  1. Place the yeast, sugar, salt and flour in the bowl of an electric mixer.
  2. Turn the mixer on low and gradually add the water until a dough forms, but the mix is still quite sticky. No need to knead. {LOL}
  3. Allow to rise for an hour or two. Cling wrap and place in the fridge.
  1. Divide the dough into 12 portions, that have each been kneaded slightly.
  2. Stick your finger through the ball of dough and swing it around until the hole gets larger.
  3. Place the bagels on a floured tray, put a large pot of water on the stove and turn onto a medium heat.
  4. Preheat the oven to 200 degrees Celsius then go and open some presents.
  5. After about 30 minutes, begin to poach the bagels in the simmering water, 4 at a time, for 3 minutes on each side. They will double in size!
  6. Place the bagels on a lined tray, brush with egg and sprinkle with sesame seeds.
  7. Bake for 30 minutes or until golden.
  1. You don't need to use an electric mixer, you could do the same by hand!

    Haha love the no need to knead! These sound awesome. I love that you can half prep them the night before. I’ve never made bagels but absolutely love them, so I’m going to give this recipe a go. Do you think I could add in blueberries without too many dramas? xx
