I figured I could give it a shot! I am doing plain first, I do plan to try to get a blueberry one going too.
2/3 cup warm water
2 TB yeast
2 TB sugar(I used organic cane sugar)
2 eggs(room temp)
1 cup brown rice flour
1/2 cup potato starch
1/2 cup tapioca starch
1/2 cup cornstarch
2 tsp baking powder
2 tsp xanthan gum
1 tsp salt
1/2 tsp cider vinegar
egg white for brushing
toppings as desired
dried onion flakes
Place water, yeast and sugar in a bowl and allow to proof until nice and foamy.
Sift flour, potato starch, tapioca starch and cornstarch with the baking powder, xanthan gum and salt.
(If you store your GF baking ingredients in the fridge or freezer, make sure it is room temp!)
Add eggs to the yeast mixture and mix well and add cider vinegar
By 1/2 cup full add the flour mixture, mixing well, switch to the dough hook when necessary.
Divide dough into 6-12 pieces(depending on your bagel size preference, 6 is pretty big, 12 would be "mini" I made 8) and shape them into circles
Poke a large hole in the center and gently stretch it out into a bagel shape(make the hole pretty big, these rise a bit)
Cover with a clean dish towel and allow to half proof, (boiling the water and heating the oven is just about the perfect time)
Preheat oven to 425
In a large deep pan(I use a wok) bring 12 cups of water to a boil. Add 2 TB sugar(again I use organic cane sugar)
Drop bagels in (DONT over crowd, if you have to do 1 at a time, do it!)
Boil for 45 seconds, VERY GENTLY flip and boil 45 seconds more.
Remove from the water and place on a baking sheet sprinkled with corn meal.
Place in hot oven and bake 18-20 minutes until golden brown, flipping about 1/2 way through baking time.
If you want the "bakery sheen"
mix 1/2 cup water with 1 tsp cornstarch, after you flip them brush each bagel gently with this mixture and again 3 minutes before the end of baking
For toppings beat 1 egg white with 2 tsp water, about 5 minutes before the end of baking time take the bagels out and brush each bagel with this mixture and sprinkle on desired toppings. Resume baking.
Remove from oven and allow to cool thoroughly. Dont try to slice a hot bagel! It turns into a mess!
Slice and toast and top with a little cream cheese and dandelion syrup or your favorite toppings!
