Italian Bread Bowls
December 15, 2010

To be fair, the 2 star rating is probably more a reflection of my ability than the recipe itself. It's my first time making bread, really. My "bread bowls" turned out to be hard, very dense...rolls. They didn't rise one bit, and I followed the directions as written (except for letting them sit for much longer, hoping they would start to rise). I baked until the outside was golden brown, but the inside didn't seem fully cooked--and very tough and doughy. I'm pretty sure my error came in with the mixing and/or kneading of the dough because it was very dense from the beginning, as I was adding the flour by 1/2 cup to the bowl. Maybe I added too much flour and/or overmixed. And I just read another review that said I shouldn't use a hand mixer? News to me, I thought that's what the recipe was talking about. I used mine, along with the dough hooks that came with it. So, I"ll try this again...someday...once I get my morale back. :) This was a little time consuming.
