This take on traditional Moroccan Khobz bread is easy to make in your bread machine. The bread should have a nice, sturdy crust. It's especially good to serve along with soups and stews for dipping. I serve it when I make Tajines. In Morocco, it's traditionally served the the midday meal and is used for dipping the stews and sauces.

Ingredients

1 c
water, room temperature
2 tsp
salt
1 tsp
sugar
2 Tbsp
vegetable oil
1 1/2 c
bread flour
1 c
whole wheat bread flour
1 tsp

2 tsp

1 tsp
sesame seeds

Directions Step-By-Step

1
Add water, sugar, salt and oil to bread machine.
2
Add both flours to bread machine 1/2 cup at a time, leveling off each 1/2 cup with a knife before adding.
3
Sprinkle anise seed over the flour. Make a well in the flour taking care not to reach the water and add yeast to well.
4
Process on dough setting. When done, spray a large baking sheet with cooking oil. With floured hands, remove dough to baking sheet. Cut in half and form to balls. Press each balls down into circles approximately 1/2" thick.
5
Spray dough with cooking oil, cover with a damp towel and place in a warm spot away from direct sun for 30 minutes. The cooking oil spray will help keep the towel from sticking. Preheat oven to 375.
6
After dough has risen, prick all over with a fork, lightly brush with olive oil and sprinkle with sesame seeds.
7
Place on the center shelf of your oven and shut the door. Wait a few minutes and then place a small cast iron pan with cold water on the bottom shelf of the oven. Bake another 15-20 minutes depending on your oven. Remove when nicely golden but not brown.
