I mentioned in my January e-newsletter to use bread bowls with your soups. I use the basic bread recipe for my bread and simply form the bread into baseball size balls. You then place the dough in greased bowls. Let them rise and bake till golden brown.
Paula's Whole Wheat Bread (3 Loaves)
* 3 1/2 cups warm water (about 120 to 125 degrees temperature)
* 3 Tablespoons SAF yeast
* 1 Tablespoon Dough Enhancer
* 1/3 cup oil
* 1/3 cup honey
* 1 Tablespoon salt
* 10 cups of whole wheat flour
Place all ingredients in your Bosch Mixer with only 5 cups of whole wheat flour. Turn Bosch Mixer on Speed 1. Add the rest of the whole wheat flour till the dough pulls away from the sides of the bowl..about 5 more cups of flour! Mix/knead for 4 minutes. Bake at 350 degrees. Enjoy!
Make the bowls earlier in the day so they will be easy to cut the hole for the soup. A tip on cutting the soup bowl hole...don't cut too deep and keep the lid by the bread bowl as extra bread to eat while eating the soup.
The bread bowl is so good as it sops up the excess soup. It is a heavenly way to eat soup. Enjoy! :)
