Think bread bowl making is out of your league? Think again! Today’s we’re making a simple Honey Wheat Bread Bowl Recipe that looks and tastes just like bakery bread bowls.
The problem is, every time I stop by they have already sold out of bread bowls. I just can’t seem to get there early enough to find them in stock.
That’s ok, bread bowls are easy to make. Much easier than you might think.
As long as you have a good electric mixer with a bread hook, all the hard work is done for you.
This particular Honey Wheat Bread Bowl Recipe is a personal favorite, with it’s slightly sweet flavor and wheaty aroma.
Each dough ball is brushed with egg before baking to create a dark glossy crust, then kissed with salt flakes on top. You can cut out a core to turn the round loaves into bowls, then snack on the salty-sweet core!

How to Make Bread Bowls
1) Make sure to start with lukewarm (just slightly warm) water to active the yeast. Hot water will kill the yeast, then the bread won’t rise. Give the yeast time to foam in the warm water and honey.
2) Once all the ingredients are added to the mixer, let the mixer knead the dough for 10-15 minutes to work the gluten in the flour.
3) Let the dough rise twice. Once in the mixing bowl, and again after rolled into balls. This insures proper air bubbles form and give the bread lift and a soft interior texture.
4) Brush the dough balls thoroughly with egg, to create a glossy crust. If you miss spots, there will be discoloration in the crust. The glossy exterior helps seal the crust so the soup can’t seep out over time. It also keeps the bread fresh for a longer period of time, so you can make bread bowls several days before serving. Just be sure not to cut them open until right before serving.
5) Make sure the oven is well preheated. Bake until the crust is a rich deep brown. Cool completely before serving
All in all, the actual time you are working on the bowls is just 20 minutes or less, with a little wait time for rising.
