Prep Time



Total Time






cup water
2 3/4
cups Gold Medal® Better for Bread™ flour
tablespoon sugar
teaspoon salt
1 1/2
teaspoons bread machine or quick active dry yeast
egg yolk
tablespoon water
  1. Measure carefully, placing all ingredients except egg yolk and 1 tablespoon water in bread machine pan in the order recommended by the manufacturer.
  2. Select Dough/Manual cycle. Do not use delay cycle.
  3. Remove dough from pan, using lightly floured hands. Cover and let rest 10 minutes on lightly floured surface.
  4. Grease outsides of six 10-ounce custard cups. Place cups upside down on ungreased cookie sheet. Divide dough into 6 equal pieces. Roll or pat each piece into 7-inch circle on lightly floured surface. Shape dough circles over outsides of cups. Cover and let rise in warm place 15 to 20 minutes or until slightly puffy.
  5. Heat oven to 375°F. Mix egg yolk and 1 tablespoon water; brush gently over bread bowls. Bake 18 to 22 minutes or until golden brown. Carefully lift bread bowls from custard cups--bread and cups will be hot. Cool bread bowls upright on wire rack.

Make the Most of This Recipe With Tips From The Betty Crocker® Kitchens
When placing the dough circle over the cup, don’t let the dough curl under the edge of the cup. (It’ll bake onto the edge of the cup and be hard to remove.) If some of the dough does bake onto the edge, use the tip of a paring knife to carefully separate it from the cup.
Give these bread bowls Italian flair by adding 1/4 teaspoon garlic powder or 1 teaspoon Italian seasoning with the flour.
