Making Cornucopia Bread

Beautiful empty Cornucopia Bread
Start with frozen bread rolls and then the creativity begins. While the dough is rising make a cornucopia shaped foil form. The bread dough will be flattened, cut into strips, and wrapped around the form and baked. Once cooled you can serve filled with fruit or other goodies on your holiday table.

Beautiful Cornucopia Bread filled with fruitThis seasonal centerpiece is a showstopper that everyone can actually eat! I love to make these for Thanksgiving. Fill them whatever you like; fruit, veggies, even little bread rolls. Everyone can pull at the rings and enjoy.

Total Time: 2 hours

Yield: 1 large cornucopia

Ingredients:

  • 16 ounces bread dough (I used Rhodes Bake and Serve frozen rolls, thawed)
  • oil spray
  • foil
  • flour for dusting
  • 1 egg
  • 1 Tbsp water

Steps:

  1. Preheat oven to 375 F. Bring all your dough to room temperature then form into a ball. Cover with plastic wrap and keep in a warm area.

  9. You will need another smaller piece of foil to finish the opening area of the cornucopia. Just add on top then fold into the other piece to secure.

  11. Bunch up a couple other pieces of foil into large balls and throw inside cornucopia. This will keep it sturdy with all the bread dough around it.

  21. Continue to wrap all the way around the foil until you reach the other end. It's helpful to make a wad of foil under the tail to support it and keep it up.
