Cauldron Bread Bowls

Quick-rise yeast cuts the preparation time of this make-ahead bread. Hollow out the large rye rolls and fill with Bewitching Chili or dip of your choice for chips or veggies.
  • Total Time
    Prep: 15 min. + rising Bake: 20 min.
  • Makes
    8 bread bowls


  • 4 to 5 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 cup rye flour
  • 3 teaspoons quick-rise yeast
  • 3 teaspoons salt
  • 2 teaspoons baking cocoa
  • 2 cups water
  • 1/3 cup molasses
  • 1/4 cup vegetable oil


  • In a bowl, combine 4 cups all-purpose flour, rye flour, yeast, salt and cocoa. Heat water, molasses and oil to 120°-130°. Add to dry ingredients; beat until smooth. Stir in enough remaining all-purpose flour to form a soft dough. Turn onto a floured surface; knead until smooth and elastic, about 6-8 minutes. Cover and let rest for 10 minutes.
  • Divide the dough into eight portions; shape each into a ball. Place on greased baking sheets. Cover and let rise in a warm place until doubled, about 20 minutes. Bake at 375° for 20 minutes or until golden brown.
  • Cut the top fourth off each roll; carefully hollow out bottom, leaving a 1/4-in. shell (discard removed bread or save for another use). Fill each bowl with about 1/2 cup chili. Serve bread tops on the side if desired.
