  • Metal bread baking tubes???? (heart, star, scallop shapes)

    Yesterday, at the Salvation Army thrift store, I picked up a box of 3 baking tubes. It did not contain any instructions on the use of these tin shapes or recipes to go with them.

     

    Have any of you fine folks ever used this type of baking tubes? If so, would you mind posting any advice, tips, baking times, how to's for me"

    I got mind at the Goodwill store...no instructions. I just got the heart & the scallop one-no star.  I think you're supposed to bake a firmer yeast dough in them...I have made banana bread in them.  My 1st attempt was when I discovered the runny dough was dribbling out the bottom as I was pouring it in the top.  So, the next time I used heavy-duty aluminum foil pressed around the bottom & then capped it...that worked...think I baked it about 45 min.  Maybe someone here got them new w/the instructions.  I've just made the quick breads in them...just make sure the bottom is firmly covered.  Mine don't have any kind of a vent.

    They are Pampered Chef products. Maybe you could go online to see of they have recipes. I seem to remember baking a refrigerated tube of French Bread in one. I think you can use them for 'can breads.' I used mine ofr cookie cutters and sandwich cutters moe than anything else.

    Product Use and Care
    #1565 Scalloped Bread Tube




    Use our exclusive Scalloped Bread Tube to make attractive scallop-shaped canapés, breakfast breads, miniature sandwiches and desserts. Made of tinned steel for even heating, the top lid features a vent for steam release during baking.

    How to Use
    • Wash prior to first use.
    • Use to bake packaged refrigerated bread dough or frozen bread dough that has been thawed. Bread tube is not recommended for use with brownie, quick bread or cake batters, cookie dough or gelatin mixtures.
    Using a one pound loaf of frozen bread dough
    1. Preheat oven to 375°F.
    2. Lightly spray inside of bread tube and lids with nonstick cooking spray. Place lid (without vent hole) on bottom of bread tube.
    3. Cut about 2 inches of dough from one end of loaf.
    4. Place dough in bread tube. Place top lid (lid with vent hole and marked “TOP”) on top of bread tube.
    5. Immediately place bread tube upright on lower rack of oven. Bake 50-60 minutes, until ends are golden brown.
    6. Remove bread from bread tube and place on cooling rack; cool completely, then slice.
    NOTE: When using bread tube with softened ice cream, yogurt or sherbet mixtures, it may be necessary to line bottom lid with Parchment Paper to prevent leakage. Fold a 15-inch square sheet of Parchment Paper into fourths. Place between lid and bottom of bread tube; cap with top lid before freezing.

    Other Creative Uses
    • Use as a form for creating frozen dessert treats. Fill bread tube with softened ice cream, frozen yogurt or sherbet; place lids on top and bottom and freeze 4-6 hours or overnight. To unmold, wrap a warm, damp kitchen towel around tube 1-2 minutes to loosen frozen mixture. Remove lids from bread tube; push contents out onto cutting board and cut into slices. (Do not store frozen food in bread tube for extended periods of time.)
    • Cut decorative shapes from rolled-out cookie dough, biscuit dough, pie crust or puff pastry.
    • Cut shapes from sliced bread, cheese or deli meats, then assemble to make miniature snack-size sandwiches.
    • Create crispy rice cereal and marshmallow treats. Spray bread tube with nonstick cooking spray. Fill with warm cereal mixture, pressing evenly to fill tube; place lids on top and bottom and cool completely. Remove lids from bread tube; push cereal mixture out onto cutting board and cut into slices. Decorate, if desired.
    How to Clean
    • Hand wash; rinse and towel dry immediately.
    • Bread tube is not dishwasher-safe. Rusting will occur if bread tube is left to soak in water.
    Guarantee
    • Manufacturer’s 3-year guarantee covers product repair or replacement only.

    Canape French Bread
     Ingredients:
    1   package (11 ounces) refrigerated French bread dough
     Directions:
    1. Preheat oven to 375°F. Lightly spray inside of Scalloped Bread Tube and lids with nonstick cooking spray. Place lid on bottom of bread tube; fill tube with dough. Place lid on top. Bake, upright, 50-60 minutes. Remove from oven; cool 10 minutes.
    2. Remove bread from tube to Stackable Cooling Rack; cool completely. Cut bread into 1/4-inch-thick slices with Serrated Bread Knife.
    Yield: 24 slices (1 loaf)

    Nutrients per serving: (Light) (2 slices): Calories 60, Total Fat 1 g, Saturated Fat 0 g, Cholesterol 0 mg, Carbohydrate 11 g, Protein 2 g, Sodium 160 mg, Fiber 0 g

    Cook’s Tips: One (1-pound) loaf frozen bread dough can be substituted for the refrigerated bread dough. Thaw dough according to package directions. Divide dough in half using Serrated Bread Knife; reserve one half in refrigerator for later use. Place dough half in prepared Bread Tube; place lid on top of Tube. Allow bread dough to rise in a warm place for 2-3 hours or until Bread Tube is 2/3 full. Bake and cool as directed above. Repeat with reserved dough half, if desired.

    If using homemade bread dough, place enough dough in prepared Bread Tube to fill approximately half full; place lid on top of Tube. Allow bread dough to rise in a warm place for about 30 minutes or until Bread Tube is 2/3 full. Bake and cool as directed above.

    The Scalloped Bread Tube can be used as a large cookie cutter. You can also use it to cut out crisp rice cereal treats. Spray the tube with a little nonstick cooking spray to avoid sticking.

    For sandwiches that are fun to eat, simply assemble sandwich ingredients as usual and cut out the center with the Scalloped Bread Tube. Crusts get cut off, and the sandwich is instantly transformed into a neat shape!

    To toast bread slices, preheat oven to 350°F. Arrange slices in a single layer on flat Baking Stone. Bake 10-12 minutes or until light golden brown. Cool completely.

    Variation: Cinnamon Swirl Bread: Remove bread dough from package; unroll dough onto flat surface. Brush dough with 1 tablespoon melted butter or margarine using Pastry Brush. Combine 2 tablespoons sugar and 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon; sprinkle evenly over dough. Starting at long edge, roll up dough. Place dough in prepared bread tube. Bake as directed above.

    red_savage1...I'm so glad you asked this question....I've been using mine wrong.  I can say that capping the bottom w/foil + the cap has allowed me to bake nut breads...I've made them for dessert platters at a bridal shower & were pretty sliced into flowers & hearts.  But now I've gotten lots more information & ideas for using them.

  • Re: Metal bread baking tubes???? (heart, star, scallop shapes)

    I remember years ago I bought Rhode's frozen dough loaves and baked them in those tubes.  I think they were put in frozen, then when they rose they filled up pretty much the whole tube (but make sure you grease the inside really good).

     

    Here's a couple of sites that give you hints.
