Doesn’t it just look so tasty with the thyme mixed in??

I’ve finally worked up enough courage to start playing around with my basic Moroccan bread recipe to come up with some variations.  On my first attempt it’s safe to say it was a success!  This is a much more rustic bread than the white bread version I make.  However most bread in Morocco is made with a blend of another whole grain.  This bread is a little sweet and a little savory.  I think that if you have a little bit of bread leftover it would make a great bread crumb once dried up!


Ingredients
2 c white flour

These quantities will make about 3 8″ diameter loaves

1 c wheat flour
1 tbsp honey
1 tsp chopped thyme leaves (stems removed)
1 tsp sea salt
2 tsp dry yeast
2 tbsp good olive oil

Directions:  You can use the same instructions as the traditional khobz recipe.  Just add in the additional ingredients before kneading.  Check out the tutorial here.

    I’ve posted my recipe before on making Moroccan bread (khobz) and you can find my recipe here.  The fun thing about this bread is that it’s pretty forgiving.  You can use different kinds of flours, mixtures of flours, rising time and making it into different shapes.  Traditionally it is made into a round and there…

    I don't know if there's anything more Moroccan than a round loaf of bread. Nope. There's not. Let's just say no one in Morocco is going to be doing the Atkin's diet anytime soon. Bread is so prevalent and ingrained (haha ingrained) in Moroccan culture my husband can not eat a meal without it. And…
