Edible Spoons and Bread Soup Bowl - Tutorial

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!

Prepare the work surface with flour

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?

Press the bowl of the spoon into the tray bowls.

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??

  6. This is one fo the neatest ideas I've seen in a while. How fun looking! Be blessed. Cindy

  7. I may have missed it, but did you bake the bread bowls inside the ceramic bowl?

  8. Yes, I did just leave the bread bowl in the ceramic bowl to bake. Good pickup.

  9. I cannot wait to try this!! Thank you for the great suggestion and idea!!

  10. This is such an awesome idea. I'm tempted to try them out for Thanksgiving canapes.

    How long do these last? I mean, if I intend to bake them ahead of a party, how many days before can I make and store? Also, how to store?

    Are these crispy or chewy?

  11. I think that's a muffin pan
