Attempt at gingerbread bagels

So this was my first attempt at reproducing the glorious Panera Gingerbread bagel... It went decently enough... but I still don't have it down exactly...

I added crystallized ginger when I balled them up... they smelled wonderfully like gingerbread at this point!

10 more minutes to rise after shaping with a hole... why must this take so long!


Hot out of the oven


crusty on the outside, chewy in the middle...

but the gingerbread kick... not totally there :( That's ok, another reason to try again! Once I have it right I'll let you guys know how I did it! Wish me luck :D

I have never tried to make bagels, but when you post the recipe for this one, I will have to! Love these!!

Meg said...

Sure looks yummy! I definitely want to try one when you get the recipe perfected!

...and after you perfect gingerbread (which I am totally excited for) you need to come up with a pumpkin bagel recipe!!! ;)

Yum.

Cute!! I want to make a gingerbread bagel. I've always wanted to make a real one (like the ones in the store aren't...?)

I've never had gingerbread bagels. I do like bagels and I do like gingerbread though!

I haven't been in Panera in ages but gingerbread bagels sound awesome. Good luck, I'll be watching to see how they fare next time.

Did it ever work out like you hoped?

I still haven't figured it out... AND the worst part is I just found out Panera isn't having them this year!!! I'm boycotting them until they bring them back... so sad :(
