If you don't need bread bowls, this recipe makes 2 beautiful round loaves. Keep one and make someone's day with a gift of fresh bread.
With sharp knife, make 4 (1 / 4-inch deep) slashes in crisscross fashion on top of loaves. Bake at 375° F for 20 to 25 minutes or until done. Remove from baking sheet; cool on wire rack.
Cut off 1 / 3 of loaf; hollow out loaf to form 1 / 4-inch thick bowl. Fill bowl with soup.
Note: Check dough after 5 minutes of mixing; it should form a soft, smooth ball around the blade. If dough is too dry or stiff, add water in 1-teaspoon increments until the right consistency is reached. If dough is too soft or slack, add bread flour in 1-teaspoon increments to achieve proper consistency. Do not add more than 3 to 4 tablespoons of liquid or flour.
