    1. Place water, honey, vital wheat gluten, salt, yeast, and wholemeal flour in the bread maker in that order. Select "Dough" setting. Let the bread maker work, about 2 hours.
    2. Remove finished dough from bread maker and punch it down on a lightly floured surface. Cut the dough into 8 equal-sized sections and pat into balls. Push a thumb through each ball to make a hole; shape the bagels as round as possible. Place on a plate and cover with a clean towel; let rest for 15 minutes.
    3. Preheat oven to 190 degrees C. Line a baking tray with a clean towel. Sprinkle a separate baking tray with cornmeal.
    4. Bring a large pot of water to a boil; add sugar. Add bagels to the water, 2 at a time. Boil for 1 minute, turning them over halfway through. Remove bagels from the water with a slotted spoon and drain on the towel-lined baking tray.
    5. Transfer bagels to the prepared baking tray. Brush bagels with egg white.
    6. Bake in the preheated oven until browned, 15 to 20 minutes. Transfer to a cooling rack.

    Cook's Notes:

    If you don't have a bread maker, add the yeast to the lukewarm water and honey for 10 minutes, then add the flour and gluten. Knead, let rise, and follow the rest of the instructions.
