I know, I know, it’s August 7th, and I’m sharing a pumpkin recipe. With only a month of summer left, the last thing anyone wants to think about is fall and pumpkin-flavored everything. However, once you try these bagels, I think you’ll make an exception. These pumpkin spice bagels are aromatic and spicy, and my family enjoys them year round. When my cousin from Arizona visited last month, I wasn’t allowed to bake anything else!
Bagels are a very intimidating bread to bake. They have a yeast dough and need to be boiled before they are baked. I never thought to attempt bagels because they seemed incredibly complicated. I finally gave it a try and was delighted with the results. Don’t let the number of steps scare you- this recipe is accessible even to the most amateur baker.
