Bread Cones



For this recipe, I stayed true to the original recipe and didn't change a thing! Ok, I admit that I didn't have the cream horn tubes that are essential for this recipe. I once saw an alternative for making cream horns without the tubes in a Cuisine at Home magazine. They used ice cream sugar cones and wrapped them in aluminum foil.

Ingredients:
  • 1/2 cup milk
  • 1/2 cup water
  • 3 tablespoons oil
  • 1/4 cup sugar
  • 1 beaten egg
  • 1 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 2 1/4 teaspoon instant yeast
  • 3 1/2 to 4 cups bread flour (I used only 3 1/2)

Egg wash:
  • 1 egg
  • 1 tablespoon milk

Instructions:

Pour the milk and water into a saucepan and heat to a scald.Pour this into a large bowl (I used my kitchen aid bowl since I was going to knead it using the mixer), allow to cool to lukewarm. Add in the oil, sugar and salt; mix with a wooden spoon till well blended.

Add in the beaten egg and 2 cups of flour; mix till smooth with a wooden spoon.

Add in the instant yeast and mix.

Allow to sit for 10 minutes uncovered. Now, start to slowly add in more flour. I added 1 1/2 cups...a total of 3 1/2 cups of flour. I used my Kitchen Aid to do the mixing...I kneaded the dough for 6-8 minutes. Add a tablespoon of oil to a clean bowl and place the dough into the bowl. Turn over a few times to lightly coat all sides of the dough with the oil.



Cover with plastic wrap and allow to rest till the dough doubles in bulk, about 1 hour. While the dough is rising, make the cones. That is if you don't have any. If you do...ah, take a break:)
Make the cones out of card stock paper material or fliers that are a bit more sturdier.



Tape the cones and then cover them well with aluminum foil, so that no paper shows.



Set them aside.



Remove dough and knead a few time to release the gas. Now cut the dough into 8 pieces.



Use a scale to make sure each piece is equal in weight(I didn't do this since I don't have a scale). Allow the dough to rest for 5 minutes. Take each piece of dough and roll into a 36 inch rope.



Roll the dough ropes around the greased 6 inch cream horn tubes.






Place onto a cookie sheet lined with parchment paper and brush with the egg glaze. Sprinkle sesame seeds or poppy seeds(or both).





Cover with plastic wrap. Allow to rest for 30 minutes in a warm environment.
Bake in a preheated 350 degree oven for 20 - 22 minutes or till golden brown(mine took about 18 minutes).



Place onto a wire rack and allow to cool for a couple minutes before removing the tubes.
Fill them with your favorite filling and enjoy!
