    This is my new go to recipe! Fantastic bagels. I’ve made 3 batches so far and all were perfect. I’m looking forward to more and so is the family! Thank you.

  2. This was the first time that I’ve ever tried to make bagels. Your recipe was very straightforward and fairly easy to follow. The first six of my bagels look really good, but the last four looked rather dense and dough. Do you have any idea why that happened? I’d appreciate your input. Thank you.

    1. Hi Lisa, did they taste dense and doughy? Or just look that way? I’m wondering if maybe you boiled or baked the last batch too long? There are SO many things that could have been the cause, though. It’s odd that the same batch produced different texture bagels, though. Which tells me it was likely the boiling or baking step.

    1. For the dough itself or for the water bath? For the water bath you can use 1:1 ratio. For the dough, I’d use a half tbs since honey is so much sweeter and since it’s in liquid form. I’d also use a tiny bit less water too so your dough isn’t too wet.
