Preheat broiler. Trim crusts from bread slices, then cut into 20 assorted shapes, using cookie cutter to cut circles and knife to cut other shapes.

This site is a PBS series with Father Dominic baking bread. Go to the recipe archive, episode 210, for Honey Spice Bread and he discusses how to use canape tubes for baking.


There are many wonderful recipes for bread on this site.

If the bread tubes that are being referred to are the long bread tubes,I have a French bread recipe that will work perfectly. Makes 2 loaves. 5 1/2 - 6 cups flour, 2 pkgs active dry yeast, 2 Tbsps sugar, 2cups of water (120¡-130¡). Mix 2 cups of flour with yeast and sugar in a large bowl. Stir in water; stir until completely mixed. Slowly add in remaining flour a 1/2 cup at a time until a soft dough forms. Turn onto lightly floured surface and knead until smooth and elastic (5-10 mins). Cover with bowl and let rest 20 mins. Divide dough in half. Roll each half into a 15x12-inch rectangle. Spray lightly with water.


Beginning at long side roll up tightly. Seal seams and taper ends. With a sharp knife, make (3 or 4) 1/4 inch deep diagonal cuts along loaf tops. Cover; let rise about 20 mins. spray lightly with water. Bake at 400F for 15 mins, then reduce to 350F and bake 15-20 mins longer.
I make this bread 3 or 4 times a week. My husband's family always asks for this bread at family dinners.
This bread is tasty and cheap to make. I do not add salt to this recipe but if you like you can add 2 tsps of salt. I also bake this bread on regular cookie sheets, just angle the bread from corner to corner so it is long.

Do you grease bread tubes for removal of the bread loaf?

I would suggest you call Pampered chef, as a friend of mine has them and she also got with her tubes, a couple of sheets with rec. on them. Best wishes. I would call the rep, maybe someone can open another box and copy them for you. Have a great night!

If I am baking 3 bread tubes at the same time, using the store bought bread dough, do I need to add additonal baking time from the usual 50-60 minutes for one tube?

How do I know how much dough to put in each tube, and how long to bake?

I have a star and a heart - bread tubes - from Pampered Chef. How long do I bake the banana bread and how full do I fill the tubes? Also, do I bake with the ends on?
