I ended up with hard "cracker" like rolls rather than bread bowls. They did not rise up into anything deep enough to hold soup. They actually worked well though as I broke them up and dipped them in the soup (which I served the old fashioned way - in bowls from the cupboard.)
I followed this recipe exactly and ended up with 4 small hard bread disks... They didn't even resemble bread bowls... I would recommend using just a light bread flour and not flattening them into disks. The Italian bread bowl recipe on this site is 500 times better!!! Take a look at that one if you want a good bread bowl:)
I use all purpose white flour in the whole recipe and 2 tablespoons of yeast. The result is a bread that does not compete with the food inside it.
I also pull out the bread inside the bowls to dip into the soup or the stew.
The bowls are moist and chewy inside and crusty on the outside.
This receipe worked fine -- I didn't flatten the bread to discs before baking I left them as balls. I put a home made stew in them. The bread had a nice coarse taste and texture to them perfect compliment to the stew. In addition the crust was firm and chewy/crunchy that tasted really good and held up well under the gravy of the stew.
I used 3 cups whole wheat flour and one white. Also divided dough into 2 instead of 4 as I wanted larger bowls for putting dip in at a party. The taste was fine but they didn't raise into bowls. I would try this recipe again but don't flatten into disks at all. Whatever shape they are when they are doughy is what shape they will be when they come out. That is really the only major issue with this recipe otherwise the taste is fine and makes a nice crusty outside with a more chewy inside.
