In this instructable, I will show you how to make something that will raise your soup up a notch- the bread bowl.
Step 1: Ingredients
For this recipe you will need
6 c all-purpose flour
2 egg whites
2 tbsp sugar
2 tbsp water
2 1/2 tsp salt
4 tbsp olive oil & 1 tbsp olive oil
2 packets instant yeast
2 1/2 c warm water (not too hot!)
Using the mixing bowl for the electric mixer, combine the water with the yeast and sugar and leave alone for 10 minutes.
Step 3: Get Another Bowl..
In a separate bowl combine the flour and salt.
Step 4: Bringing It All Together
Add the flour mixture a little at a time to the yeast mixture.
Step 5: Mix Looking Good? Good.
After everything is combined, add the 4 tbsp of olive oil and mix thoroughly. Mix the dough until it pulls together.
Step 6: Still Have That Flour Bowl? Good.
Coat a bowl with 1 tbsp of olive oil. Toss the dough around the bowl to coat it with the oil.
Step 7: Cover It Up!
Cover the dough and place in a warm area to let proof for one hour.
Step 8: Stress Relief!
Uncover the dough and give it a punch.
Step 9: Work It!
Flour your working surface and remove the dough from the bowl and kneed for a few minutes.
Step 10: Cut!
Cut the dough into 6 equal parts.
Step 11: All That Time Playing With Play-doh Paid Off.
Push your thumb in the bottom of the dough pulling the edges up and over and bringing the edges together and pinching them to form a ball.
This will keep the top of your dough bowl looking pretty.
Step 12: Line Up!
Place the dough folded side down on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper.
Step 13: Proof X 2
Cover the dough again and proof for 30 minutes.
Step 14: You Just Need a Very Small Bowl for This.
Mix the eggs with 2 tbsp water to create an egg wash.
Step 15: Don't Miss a Spot.
Brush the egg wash on the dough balls.
Step 16: Bake!
Bake in an oven that's been preheated to 400° for 25 minutes.
Step 17: Be Careful Straight Out of the Oven It's Hot!
Cut the tops of the bowls off and remove some of the dough from the inside, making a hollow bowl.
