I scored (sniped) on eBay today & today's treasure was a set of three Pampered Chef bread tubes.
Anyone ever use bread tubes? Any advice welcome!
That looks cool. Make brioche or angel's food cake in it. I dig it.
I had never heard of bread tubes, so I Googled them and came up with the Pampered Chef site which has instructions
I lucked out too because these were new with instructions ... or I'd be up a creek without a 'bread' paddle.
I hope they will arrive within a week so I can play with them.
I have seen them around in garage sale, usually sold for a buck or two. Never thought of trying them out though... They're a bit too cute for me... I like big bread! LOL Please do let us know how they turn out. Have fun! Al
I have also been curious about the size too. Wary that they might bee too small.
Hors d'oeuvre maybe?
What size are these tubes, I see there is nothing posted about that.....qahtan
I'm not where I have one in front of me, but they are approximately 8 - 9" long and maybe 2-1/2 to 3" in diameter. I have three shapes, a scallop circle, a heart and a star.
would be good in them. Then fancy French Toast!
Make sure you have a good coating of something to make sure it doesn't stick or it is a nightmare. I use a combo of liquid lecithin and vegetable oil. Any of the baking sprays with lecithin in it work well, as do the sprays with flour (I'm told, on that one-never used those)
I have had mine for twenty-some years. I use a basic white bread recipe. They are great for canapes.
this was my whole wheat bread that I baked in the pyrex bread tube,I really like it.qahtan.
Now, that's what I call "Big bread"! Way to go, qahtan!
I was just at a party on saturday and used the bread tube pictured at the top. We baked the bread, cooled and then we sliced the loaf into 1/4 inch to 1/2 inch pieces. Then we brushed the tops of the slices with olive oil and crushed garlic. Put them back in the oven until a little bit crispy. Once they were out, we put a mixture of diced tomatoes, feta cheese, olives, more crushed garlic, and shrimp. It made wonderful crustinis.
I'm sure this will work with any toppings you guys use for crustinis.
Fabulous answers ... and those great photos ... getting hungry here!
Wow, I have never come across bread baked in tubes before - fascinating.
I got really lucky and found a brand new set at a vintage shop for $4!! I was so excited. The only down thing was that there werent any instructions or recipes. So I tried my chocolate chip banana nut recipe and only filled the tubes 1/2 way, then baked at 375 for 1 hour. They came out great! I think next time around I will fill them a little fuller because there was just over 1/4 of rise space left.
