2 Ingredients Bagels#BreadBakers

These homemade bagels are just 2 ingredients which are plain thick yogurt/Greek yogurt and self-rising flour! The recipe doesn’t require any yeast or proofing. You can have fresh chewy and soft bagels in less than an hour.
These bagels have a thicker chewy skin and an airy and chewy interior. They do have a slight tangy taste from the yogurt. It makes them taste almost like sourdough bagels. These bagels don’t expand to be quite as large as traditional flour yeasted bagels but they are a great personal size. You can top with whatever toppings you like. I actually love my bagels plain but made a quick everything bagel seasoning and topped them with it and then baked them.
Served these warm homemade quick bagels with some Nutella and they vanished in a jiffy.

1 Cup Measurement =250Ml
Makes 5 Bagels

1 Cup Thick Yogurt / Greek yogurt
1½ Cup Self-Rising Flour
For The Toppings
Everything Bagel Seasoning
1 Egg yolk - whisked

Preheat oven to 175°C. Line a large baking sheet with parchment paper or silicone baking mat.
In a large bowl, add yogurt and flour. When measuring out the yogurt, make sure that you strain out any extra liquid. Any extra liquid sitting in your yogurt will cause the dough to be too wet.
Using a large spoon or spatula, mix together flour and yogurt until it begins to form a crumbly dough. Use your hands to push the dough together into one ball. The dough will be very sticky. Take this dough into a lightly floured surface and knead till it forms a smooth dough.
Oil your hand a little and cut into 5 equal parts.
Dust the work surface with flour. Roll them into round ball. Flatten it lightly and poke a finger into it and roll it in floured surface to make a nice big hole.
Place them in a lined tray and brush them with egg ( I had an egg white used that to brush but didn't then rich brown color had I to use an egg yolk only), sprinkle bagel seasoning.
Bake in a preheated oven at 175°C for 20 - 25 minutes or until golden. 
Let bagels cool a few minutes before slicing and making a sandwich with the filling of your choice. 
Served them with Nutella. These are perfect quick breakfast or an snack.

  1. Oh wow just 2 ingredients, that is interesting now. Do we not need salt or anything here or does the sour taste from yogurt will balance it out.

    1. Self Rising flour already has salt so I did not add any to the dough. Use fresh yogurt so no sour taste.

  2. No yeast and no boiling. Very intriguing.

  3. What a great trick for when you have a bagel craving!

  4. This is an interesting recipe! I would try this.
