Wholemeal Cinnamon Cranberry Bagel

Here's my all time favorite~Bagel. 
It's not a common bread that you can get in Malaysia bakery. 
That's why I decided to bake my own bagel.
This is my 3rd attempt and I'm still not satisfy with the bagel shape. 
I'll keep trying until I get a smooth and round bagel!!

Here's the recipe (adapted from Barbara bakes)
Note: If you like wholemeal bread, just substitute half of the bread flour with wholemeal flour.
You will notice the recipe requested to retard the bagel dough in refrigerator but I skipped the step (too lazy to do so). I just straight away bake and eat it..YUM!!!
