About this Recipe

By: Fast Easy Bread

When the weather turns cold in the fall and winter, we believe there is nothing better than hot soup in a homemade bread bowl. This recipe is perfect for just that.  The bread bowl can complement so many types of soup and you can eat the bowl as you go. Yummy!


It is very important that you use bread flour. Do not use all-purpose flour for this recipe. You can substitute almost any sweetener for the sugar such as honey or brown sugar at a 1:1 ratio. The Saf-Instant Premium Yeast and the Liquid Soy Lecithin can be purchased in the Homemade Bread Bundle or the Homemade Pizza Bundle
