Bread Basket

So  I figured I could make a bread basket. I saw some wonderful pictures online but mine did not come even close. Reason – primarily because I was using only wheat dough. That makes it dense and not airy to try out different styles. But nevertheless, it did come out nicely. When I added some vegetables to it, it was totally yummy!

Again, the bread recipe for this is from here. Instead of plain flour, I used wheat flour but for this, the recipe is the same.

Preheat the oven at 175C

After Step 8 in that recipe, grease the back of a muffin tray or cover it with aluminum foil. Roll out the dough to a thin sheet and cut it into strips.

Draw lines

Cut the strips in half and use them to roll over each muffin mould in the muffin tray. I have tried rolling it in two different ways. Option 1 worked better for me than option 2.

Single basket dough

Diff design dough

All 3 dough

Bake for 15-20 minutes at 175C till it starts browning. Cool and unmould after ten minutes

Finished baskets

You can also stuff the bread baskets with vegetables and top it with grated cheese. Cook the vegetables separately and fill in the basket.
