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
anise seed
2 tsp
bread machine yeast
olive oil for brushing
1 tsp
sesame seeds

Step-By-Step

1Add water, sugar, salt and oil to bread machine.
2Add both flours to bread machine 1/2 cup at a time, leveling off each 1/2 cup with a knife before adding.
3Sprinkle anise seed over the flour. Make a well in the flour taking care not to reach the water and add yeast to well.
4Process 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.
5Spray 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.
6After dough has risen, prick all over with a fork, lightly brush with olive oil and sprinkle with sesame seeds.
7Place 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.
