There’s something about a partially whole-wheat bagel along with some cinnamon that makes the most tantalizing bagels. I add the cinnamon to the bagel by hand, gently kneading the dough to create a marbleized effect.



  • 1 cup dark raisins, plumped
  • cups warm water
  • 4


In a mixer bowl, whisk together the water and yeast and let stand a couple of minutes to allow yeast to swell and dissolve. Whisk in oil, honey, brown sugar, stirring to blend. Stir in whole-wheat flour, cinnamon and salt and blend well. Add in three cups of the white bread flour and begin kneading, 10-12 minutes, adding more flour as required to make a very firm but smooth dough.
