Bread Cones





Pour milk and water into a saucepan and heat to a scald. Pour this into a large bowl, allow to cool to lukewarm.

Add in oil, sugar and salt; mix with a wooden spoon till well blended. Add in beaten egg and  flour (mixed with the yeast) and mix till smooth.

When the mixture becomes to hard to mix, pour out onto a well floured surface and knead for 8 minutes.

The dough will become smooth and elastic. Add just enough flour that the dough no longer sticks to your hands while kneading.

Add a tablespoon of oil to a clean bowl and place the dough into the bowl. Turn over a few times to lightly coat all sides with oil.

Cover with plastic wrap and allow to rest till double in bulk, about 2 hours.

Remove dough and knead a few minutes to release the gas.

Now cut the dough into 8 pieces. use a scale to make sure each piece is equal in weight.

Allow to rest for 5 minutes. Take each piece and roll into a  rope.

Roll ropes around the greased cream horn tubes. Place onto a cookie sheet lined with parchment paper and cover with plastic wrap.

Allow to rest for 30 minutes. Bake in a preheated oven at 180°C  for 20 - 22 minutes or till golden brown.

Place onto a wire rack and allow to cool for a couple minutes before removing the tubes.
