Quick and Easy Bread Bowls


Makes 3 bread bowls

  • 1 1/2 cups warm water (about 110 degrees F or hot enough to keep your finger in comfortably)
  • 2 tbsp. instant dry yeast
  • 1 tbsp. white sugar
  • 3 1/2 cups bread flour
  • 1 tsp. salt
  • A spray bottle of water 
Combine the water and yeast in a large bowl. Let sit for a couple minutes. Add the sugar and flour and knead for 10 minutes by hand or with stand mixer with dough hook attachment, adding the salt halfway through.

Cover with a damp cloth and let rise in a warm place for about half and hour. 

Preheat the oven to 500 degrees F. Divide the dough into three lumps. Stretch each one into a tight ball, pinching the bottom with your fingers and sealing it off by twisting it on the counter. 

Place on a greased baking sheet. Score the top and sprinkle with some salt. Spray with a spray bottle of water and allow to rise 15 more minutes. 

Place in the oven. After 2 minutes, open the oven, spray the bread bowls with the spray bottle and turn the heat to 425 degrees F. Continue to bake 18 more minutes or until done.

To cut the bread bowls, use a knife to cut a circle directly downwards, then pull it out.
