Walt Disney World French bread……. Mmmmmm

OK, so I’m going to put the recipe first. I hate digging through a personal story before getting to the reason I’m there. I’ll do this with all the recipes. Story is at the end, along with locations you can enjoy at WDW.

Ingredients:

3 cups water (warm)

1-ounce active dry yeast

8 1/2 cups flour

1-ounce salt

1 1/2 ounces honey

Instructions:

With an electric mixer, use a dough hook, combine water and yeast. Let the yeast sit in the water for about five minutes.

Stir in the honey

Sift together the flour and the salt. If you don’t have a sifter you can use a fine mesh colander. Add it to the yeast mixture slowly and mix at a low speed for one minute. Then on medium for two minutes.

When the dough separates from the bowl, cover the bowl with a cloth to rest. Be sure it’s a warm spot. After about an hour the dough would have risen to double its size.

On a clean floured surface, knead lightly. Form the dough into the shape you want. It will hold its form fairly well at this point. Brush the top with a light salt water (or salted olive oil). Don’t pile it on. Very very light.

Preheat oven to 200F degrees. Once preheated, turn it off.

With a serrated knife, score the tops of the dough. Break the skin to about 1/8 inch deep.

Place in the oven until it doubles in size. Normally 30-45 minutes.

Remove from oven and preheat to 400F degrees.

Bake for 20 to 25 minutes, the Bread should be a golden brown.

You can find this at the Beach Club Resort, in Ariel’s. You can also find this in Magic Kingdom at Skippers Canteen. Soon to be available in the French Pavilion, at Gasteau’s!

OK, so if you’re still here, thank you for sticking around. I’m a Disney foodie, and I love cooking. Over the years I have been disheartened with ‘disney’ recipes that just….. aren’t. The recipes I’ll share are not the general ones you will find online that ultimately taste nothing like the real deal. They will be the real Disney Chef ones.

I first discovered this bread when we took our son to Skippers for dinner one day. We talked about this bread for a long time after. Crispy crust, soft and chewy inside.

In November I took my assistant (ok, be real, she’s pretty much like my daughter. She’s one of my sons best friends, and very much a mini me) for her first trip. We went to Skippers, and I grabbed it then.

I hope you enjoy this as much as we do! Happy baking!
