I am so proud of these things. These bowl things.
To date, these are the most sophisticated things I’ve ever made in my life. In my LIFE, people.
Anyone can make cookies, muffins, and cake. Unless they misread the recipe and put baking POWDER instead of baking SODA. It happens.
But to make bread, in the shape of a freaking bowl. That’s impressive. And I did it.
While eating this, I closed my eyes and convinced myself that I was sitting in Panera. But then I opened my eyes and found myself still sitting next to my whiney puppy. Oh well, it was nice while it lasted.
Anyway, make these. Make these now. Follow the recipe and you won’t be disappointed.
