Servings : 5 big cones or 7 small cones
These cute and yummy bread cones are awesome. Stuffed them with a quick salad made of leftover chicken tikka (I just shredded the tikka into chunks), salad, onions, cucumber, carrots, boiled potato cubes, some mayo and ketchup, a bit of lemon juice…all mixed together and stuffed into the cones. You can fill them with anything you want.
For the dough, I used a small variation of my trusty honeycomb bread dough. No other dough beats this one!
- 1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
- 1/2 cup milk (slightly warm)
- 1 tbsp milk powder
- some water, warmed slightly (if needed)
- 2 tbsp. slightly beaten egg (you can reserve the rest for applying on the cornets before baking as an egg wash)
- 1 1/2 tbsp. sugar
- 1 tbsp. oil
- 2 tbsp. melted butter
- 1 tsp. instant yeast
- 1/2 tsp. salt
Sieve the flour, then add milk powder, sugar, yeast and salt. Then add the oil and butter and the egg, and mix together. Now add all the warm milk. Start kneading together and gradually add the warm water a little at a time. You might not need it all, so add it sparingly until your dough is nice and soft. Knead for a good 8-10 minutes. The more you knead it the softer the buns will be.
Touch a bit of oil with your fingertips and apply all over the ball of dough. Cover and let it rest for an hour until it doubles in size. Cut the dough into 5 or 7 pieces depending on the size you want your cones. Make sure they are all about the same size. Shape them into balls, then cover and set them aside to rest for 15 minutes.
THIS is the step by step of how to shape the dough on the molds to form the perfect cone shapes.
Roll each piece of dough into a rope. Roll the dough ropes around the greased cone mold tubes, then cover and let the cones double in size. Brush with the egg glaze and sprinkle with sesame seeds. Bake in a preheated oven at 180 degree C for 18 minutes or till golden brown.
Place onto a wire rack and allow to cool for a couple minutes before removing the tubes. Stuff the cones with whichever FILLING you like and enjoy!! 🙂
