  1. Place water, salt, sugar, flour and yeast in the bread maker pan in the order recommended by the manufacturer. Select Dough setting.
  2. When cycle is complete, let dough rest on a lightly floured surface. Meanwhile, in a large saucepan bring 3 litres of water to a boil. Stir in 3 tablespoons of sugar.
  3. Cut dough into 9 equal pieces and roll each piece into a small ball. Flatten balls. Poke a hole in the middle of each with your thumb. Twirl the dough on your finger or thumb to enlarge the hole and to even out the dough around the hole. Cover bagels with a clean cloth and let rest for 10 minutes.
  4. Sprinkle an ungreased baking tray with cornmeal flour. Carefully transfer bagels to boiling water. Boil for 1 minute, turning half way through. Drain briefly on clean towel. Arrange boiled bagels on baking tray. Glaze tops with egg white and sprinkle with your choice of toppings.
  5. Bake in a preheated 180 degrees C oven for 20 to 25 minutes, until well browned.
