Traditional Moroccan Khobz Bread for Bread Machine

Tess Geer


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.

  • 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.
