Bread cones

So cream horn moulds definitely come in the category of things you don’t need as a home-baker (but really want). I had been hankering after some ever since I saw an ingenious idea on ‘the knead for bread’ blog (which sadly no longer seems to exist) which involved wrapping bread dough around them to make ‘Bread Cones’. So I finally bought some when I went into Lakeland the other day. A highly dangerous shop, full of such useful things which you suddenly desperately need.

Bread Cones are perfection as far as I’m concerned – I love home-made bread, but get a bit fed up with sandwiches every day. I love salads, but sometimes want something to go with them. I love faffing around in the kitchen. If you like all of these things too, you’ll probably like this recipe.

Plus, they stack together. I mean what more could you need? The recipe? Ah yes. Well it’s simple – make your favourite bread mix (if you’re feeling lazy, buy a bread mix to which you only have to add warm water etc.) and roll the dough into sausage shapes. That part is more difficult – if you have a foolproof technique let me know. Mine is along the lines of roll, stretch, tear, growl, start again, eventually end up with lumpy sausage-shaped bread pieces. Then you wrap them around your (greased) moulds and bake!

Finally, stuff with salads! I prepared this meal for a time when we had family over and everyone was busy – and glad to be presented with a table of fresh bread and salads at the end of the day. Coronation chicken, potato salad, olive & leaf salad, couscous salad and tomato and feta, mum’s mini falafel pasties, and a cheese board. Just right for an August summer evening.
