Semolina Bread Recipe

I started learning about semolina from my Moroccan mother-in-law who would make this amazing moroccan semolina bread that is so delicious for pizza, sandwiches or just butter and jam.

This semolina bread recipe is a long loaf instead of small, individual flat round loaves. This is somewhat easier to make as there are only two loaves to shape and bake.

How do I make this Semolina Bread Recipe?

First you want to make a sponge by placing the warm water in a mixing bowl and whisking in the yeast.

Stir in the flour, mix lightly and cover the bowl with plastic wrap.

Set the sponge aside to rise at room temperature until the sponge doubles, about 1 hour. I do this directly in the bowl of the standing mixer and then add the dough ingredients.
