Making Gluten-Free Bagels

Well,since I have a gluten intolerance,I cannot eat a lot of bread products.Yesterday one of my friends gave me a wheat and gluten-free Pamala's Bread Mix.So today I decided I would try it,with much apprehension,since our oven's thermostat seems to be broken and often burns everything.
With this in mind,I decided to try bagels,since they're smaller,and have a less chance of burning.

I mixed the bread mix,canned coconut milk,some almond milk,eggs,a banana,melted Smart Balance since we're out of oil,yeast,and I think that it's it.I wasn't too sure how it would turn out since I mixed most of it before reading directions......I have a habit of doing that.

Then the blobs of batter go into the oven to rise for an hour.
After that,boil a pot of water,and FOLLOW the directions to poke a hole in the round slabs of dough,and then drop them into the pot for 25 seconds.It always fascinates me to see the dough pop back up to the surface.Remove with a slotted spoon,and place back on the greased cookie sheet.
Back into the oven.When I start to smell them,I open the oven and the bagels are getting done on the bottom.Turn the oven back off for 5 minutes(this is how I have to do it so it doesn't burn),and then back on.

Off and on for the next half hour,leave them in the warm oven for a little longer(not on),then they're done!I went into the kitchen to find my mom already eating one.They're slightly burned on the bottom,but then,I was expecting that.

So,here's to eating food that tastes pretty good,and does not make you sick,goodnight.

Hi Jennifer--
Thanks so much for stopping by my blog and leaving such sweet comments about my work! To answer your question about my camera, I use a relatively inexpensive model, a Sony Cybershot DSC-W55. I've found the trick to taking a good jewelry photo is nice, indirect natural light, and always using the Macro function on the camera {the little tulip symbol.} I also make sure that the camera is adjusted to the correct setting for the light {mine says "cloudy" or "daylight", which is handy!} Then I just tweak them a bit on Picnik and voila!
Take care and happy beading :)
