There is something so comforting about bread bowls. In times like these, when a huge Easter feast with your extended family isn't on the menu from #SocialDistancing or you might not have the items in your fridge, coming up with a fun alternative brings everyone's mood up. Easter is one week away, how are you going to make the most of it?
Prep Time: 1 Hour
Cook Time: 30 Minutes Total Time: 1 Hour 30 Minutes
Ingredients: Water (3 cups, warm water) Active Dry Yeast (1 1/2 Tbsp) Sugar (2 Tbsp + 1/2 tsp) Salt (1 Tbsp) Butter (4 Tbsp) Flour (all purpose, 6-8 cups) Milk (1 Tbsp) Egg (1 large) Directions: 1. Combine the water, yeast, and 1/2 tsp of the sugar in a small bowl. Mix until yeast is dissolved then let sit for 5 minutes or until the mixture is foamy.
2. In a large bowl, add salt, remaining sugar, butter, yeast mixture, 3 cups of flour and mix. Slowly add more flour as you mix (about 1 cup more at a time). The dough want to pull away from the side of the bowl easily, without sticking. Once you get to about 6 cups of flour total, with a dry clean finger, touch the dough, it should be very slightly sticky. Keep adding flour until this consistency.
3. Lightly flour a clean counter. Remove dough from bowl and knead for about 5 minutes. Place in clean bowl, cover with a towel, and let rise for 30 minutes.
4. Remove from bowl and separate into 6 equal parts. Using your hands, form into round bowls. Place on baking sheet, cover and let rise for another 30 minutes. Score the top of the bread with an x. In a small bowl mix the egg and milk together. Spread the egg wash mixture on the top of the buns to create a nice crust. Bake at 400 degrees for 25-30 minutes.
