HOW TO MAKE 2 INGREDIENT BAGELS
This 2 ingredient bagel recipe couldn’t be any easier. Plus, you don’t even have to chill the dough before baking! Prepare your baking sheet with parchment paper and get your oven warmed up.
Mix together the flour and yogurt in a large bowl and combine until a dough forms. Then place the dough ball onto a floured surface or in a stand mixer. Continue either kneading the dough by hand or using the dough hook for 3-5 minutes or until it’s not sticky any longer.
Divide the dough ball into 8 and roll each one out into a log shape. Form a circle by attaching the ends to form a round bagel shape and place it on the baking sheet. Repeat for each dough ball.
Add an egg wash by brushing the tops with egg whites and bake for 25 minutes. The tops will be golden brown, and the dough will be cooked all the way through when it’s done.
CAN I USE ALL-PURPOSE FLOUR INSTEAD OF SELF-RISING FLOUR?
Yes! It’s easy to make the switch from self-rising flour to all-purpose flour. To use all-purpose flour, you will need to use 2 cups of flour and add 1 tablespoon baking powder and 1 teaspoon of salt. Mix together and follow the rest of the instructions as directed.
