Top Review by Baby Kato
After reading the other reviews, I decided to make half a batch, which I promptly made into two large bread bowls, they were the perfect size for our spicy lentil soup. They rose beautifully, large, tall and round like a ball. The bread was quick and easy to make, with a nice flavor, crispy on the outside and tender on the inside. It stood up beautifully to the soup. Thank you for sharing your recipe. Made for Spring Pac 2014.
- 2 tablespoons yeast
- 2 tablespoons sugar
- 3⁄4 tablespoon salt
- 2 cups hot water (not boiling)
- 2 tablespoons olive oil
- 4 -5 cups flour
- cornmeal (optional)
Directions See How It's Made
- Using a Bosch or Kitchen Aid mixer, put yeast, sugar, salt, hot water, and olive oil in the mixer.
- Gradually add the flour until the dough has sufficiently scraped everything off the sides of the mixing bowl. Continue to mix on low for 8-10 minutes.
- Remove and cover with plastic wrap - let the dough rise until doubles in size (about 30 minutes).
- Grease 2 cookie sheets and sprinkle with corn meal.
- Punch down the dough and make tennis ball-size dough balls (about 8-12, depending on how large you want your bread bowls).
- Place on cookie sheet with no more than 6 to a cookie sheet (don't let them touch). Let them rise for another 30 minutes.
- Bake each cookie sheet at 400 for 18 minutes.
