How to make it

  • In the bowl of a stand mixer fitted with the dough hook, combine ¼ cup warm water, 2 tbsp of the brown sugar and the yeast. Let stand 10 minutes.
  • Stir in remaining water and sugar, and pumpkin puree.
  • Whisk together flour, gluten and spice, begin beating into the yeast mixture.
  • Beat in salt. Dough will be very stiff.
  • Knead 10 minutes with the mixer.
  • Place in a clean, oiled bowl, cover and allow to rise 1 ½ hours or until doubled.
  • Punch dough down, separate into 8 (4-oz) pieces.
  • Let rest 10 minutes.
  • Shape each piece into a ball, flatten slightly and use your fingers to poke a hole about 1 ½” wide in the middle.
  • Rest, covered, for 30 minutes longer.
  • Preheat oven to 400F, line 2 baking sheets with parchment or SilPat.
  • Bring a large pot of water to a boil and add honey.
  • Place 2 bagels at a time into the water and let boil for 1 minute, flipping after 30 seconds.
  • Scoop out with a slotted spoon and place on cookie sheet.
  • Bake 20 minutes, one sheet at a time.
  • Cool on a rack.
