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.

How to Make Traditional Moroccan Khobz Bread for Bread Machine

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.
