So I bought a new toy for myself to play with in the kitchen last week. Behold, a canape bread mold.
Canape basically means decorative, one-bite food, or hors d'oeuvres. I like to make these finger foods for gatherings when friends come over. Instead of buying these small breads at the grocery store, I figured I would make them myself. It was extremely easy, and fun as well.
I started off by making the original canape bread recipe provided with the kit. I divided the dough up by 3, and flavored two of them to my liking.
I made a dry pepper salami & cheese bread, a cinnamon sweet bread, and plain canape bread. The salami & cheese one was the best!
Salami & Cheese, Cinnamon, Plain
The mold came in three shapes, a heart, start, and flower. Which will be great for holiday theme!
So here is the plain canape bread recipe:
1 1/4 Cup warm milk
1/4 Cup melted butter
1 1/4 tps salt
3 to 4 Cup of all-purpose flour
2 Tbs of warm water (115F)
1 package of active dry yeast
1 tps sugar
1. Stir together water, sugar and yeast in stand mixer bowl. Let foam for 10 minutes.
2. Warm milk with butter, add salt. Add to the yeast.
3. Knead on medium for 7 minutes, or until the dough pulls away from the side of bowl. I used 3 1/2 cups of flour.
4. Put in an oiled bowl, let rise for 1 hr.
5. Punch down, divide into three pieces.
6. Flavor them or leave plain. I added 1 tps of cinnamon and 1 Tbs sugar to one piece, and 1/3 cup chopped salami and 1/2 cup cheddar cheese to the other.
7. Shape into logs and place into greased canape bread mold.
8. Let rise for 45 mins.
9. Preheat oven to 375 F.
9. Put caps on, and bake for 30 to 35 minutes.
