  • 1 1/4 cups water
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1 tbsp yeast
  • 1 tbsp sugar
  • 1 tbsp cinnamon
  • 3 1/2 cups flour
  • 2 tbsp maple syrup
  • 1 tbsp baking soda


  • Mixing bowl
  • Conventional oven
  • Baking tray
  • Saucepan


  • Mix together water, salt, dry yeast, sugar and cinnamon. Set aside for around 10 minutes to allow the yeast to activate.
    1 1/4 cups water, 1 tsp salt, 1 tbsp yeast, 1 tbsp sugar, 1 tbsp cinnamon
  • Gradually add in the flour and mix together thoroughly. Once all of the flour had been added, knead for a couple of minutes, then cover and set aside at room temperature for half an hour.
    3 1/2 cups flour
  • Lightly dust a work surface with some flour. Transfer the dough to the surface and divide it into 6 equal segments. Shape each one into a ball, and arrange them on the floured surface. Cover and set aside for 1 hour.
  • Roll each segment out into a long rope, then gradually twist it into a circle to form the shape of a bagel.
  • Preheat the oven to 180 degrees C/350 F and line a large baking tray with parchment paper.
  • Bring a large saucepan of water to a simmer. Add maple syrup and baking soda to the water, stirring until dissolved.
    2 tbsp maple syrup, 1 tbsp baking soda
  • Once a foam starts to form on the surface of the water, remove some of it using a spoon, and transfer to a small bowl. This will be used to glaze the bagels.
  • Transfer the bagels to the saucepan around 2 at a time, depending on the size. Boil for around 2 minutes on each side, then remove using a slotted spoon and transfer to the baking tray.
  • Brush the bagels with some of the foam from the saucepan. Bake in the preheated oven for 16-18 minutes, until golden brown and crispy.


  • You can store these bagels in the fridge in an airtight container for up to 4 days. Reheat as normal in the toaster or microwave.
  • In order to freeze, you can freeze them whole in ziplock bags. Allow to thaw fully in the fridge overnight, then slice and serve as normal after reheating in the toaster.
  • You can also slice them in half before freezing, then reheat in the toaster from frozen.
