This recipe is served at the Harambe Nights event at Disney's Animal Kingdom!

  • Servings: Makes 5 (8-inch) breads


3⅔ cups All-purpose Flour
1 Tbsp Sugar
1 Tbsp Coarse Salt
½ Tbsp Baking Soda
½ cup Milk
⅔ cup Warm Water
1 Tbsp Canola Oil
4 Tbsp Butter, melted


Combine flour, sugar, salt, and baking soda in the bowl of an electric mixer fitted with the paddle attachment; stir to combine.

Combine milk, water, and oil in a medium bowl; whisk to combine.

With the mixer running, pour wet ingredients into dry ingredients. As soon as the mixture comes together, switch attachment to a dough hook, and mix until dough is smooth and no longer sticky. Do not over-mix.

Cover bowl with plastic wrap, and set aside at room temperature for 1 hour.

Place a pizza stone on a top rack of the oven, positioned approximately 6 inches below the broiler. Preheat oven to 500° for at least 30 minutes.

Divide dough evenly into 5 pieces. On a lightly floured surface, roll each piece into an 8-inch circle.

Turn oven to broil. Carefully slide one circle of dough onto the preheated pizza stone, and broil until bread is bubbled and golden brown, about 2 to 3 minutes. Watch carefully, as the bread can burn very quickly. Repeat with remaining dough rounds. Brush the warm bread with melted butter, and serve immediately.
