Blog post intro paragraph:
This summer has been filled with many new experiences for our family including going on vacation and visiting relatives out of state! My kids have loved getting to do things that we don’t normally get to do at home such as staying up late and having more freedom when it comes to what we eat for meals! While I love having time off too, one thing I really miss is cooking yummy dinners every night. That’s why today I
prep: 30 mins cook: 40 mins additional: 1 hr 20 mins total: 1 hr 90 mins Servings: 4 Yield: 4 bread bowls
2 cups whole wheat flour
1 tablespoon white sugar
2 (.25 ounce) packages active dry yeast
2 tablespoons water
2 cups bread flour
2 teaspoons salt
1 ¾ cups warm water (110 degrees F)
1 egg white
In a small mixing bowl, dissolve yeast and sugar in warm water. Let stand until creamy, about 10 minutes.
In a large mixing bowl, combine the yeast mixture with the whole wheat flour, salt and one cup of the bread flour; stir well to combine. Add the remaining flour, 1/2 cup at a time, stirring well after each addition. When the dough has pulled together, turn it out onto a lightly floured surface and knead until smooth and supple, about 8 minutes.
Place into a lightly oiled bowl, and turn to coat the whole surface with oil. Cover, and let rise in a warm place until doubled, about 45 minutes.
Punch down the dough, and let rest 10 minutes. Divide into 4 balls. Place on cookie sheets, and flatten into disks. Cover and let rise until doubled, about 30 minutes. Preheat oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C).
Lightly beat the egg white with the water and brush the risen loaves with this mixture. Bake at 375 degree F (190 degree C) for 40 to 50 minutes. When done bread should sound hollow when thumped on bottom. Remove from oven, and let cool.
Cut a circle out of the top of each loaf, and remove that part of the crust. Either remove the soft bread beneath, or compress it to form a bowl.
