Sourdough Bagels- Cooking With Gabe

Sourdough Breads | April 10, 2016 | By


Gabe is my 10 year old who loves to cook. Anything we try in the kitchen he likes to have hand in.  Today we decided to try sourdough bagels. It’s a first for both of us and honestly I don’t know why I waited so long to try them. They were SO EASY! Yes, there is an extra step of boiling them for a minute- but given that it only takes a minute and then you pop them in the oven for 15 minutes- It’s not a big deal. 

IMG_3891You will want to use your sourdough starter that has been fed and is active. I used a combination of flours. 1/2 Organic white unbleached flour and 1/2 freshly ground Prairie Gold wheat. This recipe made 18 bagels. Hopefully they will last a few days but with 4 kids, I’m thinking I’ll be making another batch in a few days. They are that good!

Enjoy friends!

Cook Time
15 min
  1. 1 c. active sourdough starter
  2. 3 cups Organic Unbleached Flour
  3. 3 cups Whole Wheat Prairie Gold Flour
  4. 1 1/4 cup filtered water
  5. 1 T coconut oil
  6. 1 T celtic salt
  7. 1 T baking soda
  1. Mix your starter, water, coconut oil, salt and flours in your kichenaid mixer with the dough hook. It will make a fairly firm dough. Transfer to a greased bowl and cover with a kitchen towel. Put in the oven with the oven light on. the oven is not on- just the light. Let the dough rise for 4 hours.
  2. After 4 hours- place the dough on the counter and press into a rectangle. Cut the dough into 18 equal pieces. Taking once piece at a time- push your thumb thorough the center and then shape the dough into a bagel shape. Place on parchment paper after it is shaped.
  3. When all 18 bagels have been shaped- let rise for 1 hour.
  4. Preheat oven to 450 degrees. In a large pot or large skillet- fill 1/2 way with water and the 1 T baking soda.
  5. Place as many bagels as will fit without having them on top of each other. Cook 1 minute flipping 1/2 way. Remove from water and place on a greased stoneware pan.
  6. Using an egg wash- rub egg on top of bagels and sprinkle with toppings of choice. We used sesame seeds for some and himalayan salt for others.
  7. Cook in a 450 degree oven for 13-15 minutes.
