|Edible Soup Spoons and Bowl...|
After recently discovering that I am indeed capable of making bread, in true style, I've tried to be as creative as I can! But, to be fair, "edible bread spoons" was my husband's idea. I'm sure I'm not the first to make these, but I dare not look (as I had a lot of fun making these up myself).
1. First you'll Need some dough. I decided to make a dough without yeast so that it was easier to make a flat spoon shape.
Ingredients: 325g flour, 1tbs salt, 1/2 tbs sugar, 200ml of warm water.
To make the dough: mix all the dry ingredients together, then add water and kneed with hands. Once you have a nice consistency, you're ready to go!

|After rolling dough flat lay over bowl,|
press into the blow shape, and cut off
excess dough around the edges.
Now that your bowl is ready, time to make the spoons!
|Using a regular spoon, press top of|
spoon into dough as shown,
then using the end of the spoon
do the same. (Try to get them
roughly the same size)
Using a knife draw lines from the
top curve to the bottom to
complete the spoon shape.
Next, align spoons in a (well I don't know what you call this tray???)... I don't even know what you would use it for? My neighbour gave a whole bunch to me a while ago. Can anyone shed any light?

Bake in Oven!!!
I baked mine in the oven for around 35 minutes at 195C (380F). Keep an eye on them, as cooking time will vary from each person.

Verdict: My husband and I really enjoyed dinner tonight! It was cool to be eating from bread spoons - in fact, we didn't even use normal cutlery at all! The spoons were really crunchy, but still enjoyable.
Fancy a completely edible meal??
