Introduction: Cornucopia Pull-Apart Bread

About: Synth chick for electro-rock band, Former Human Beings

This is a lovely pull-apart bread for those who'd like to add some show-stopping centerpiece-like edibles to the table. Funnily enough, the inspiration for this bread came from playing World of Warcraft with my friends last Thanksgiving and there was a really cute cornucopia displayed on a table for the players to sit at. I thought it was oddly delicious looking, so I brought it to life for my gamer friends to actually eat. Just put it together, bake, and fill whatever you like: fruit, veggies, even smaller bread rolls. Everyone can pull at the rings and enjoy. I added a bread dip to serve alongside.

Step 1: Grab Your Materials

You will need:

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

Step 2: Grow Your Dough

Preheat oven to 375 F. Bring your dough to room temperature then form into a ball. Cover with plastic wrap and keep in a warm area. After about an hour, your dough will double in size.

Step 3: Coil Your Foil

Take a piece of foil about 20 inches long. Form into a big cone. Start rolling the ends and twisting inward to make the cornucopia tail. You will need another smaller piece of foil to cover the opening area of the cornucopia. Simply add on top, then fold into the other piece to secure. Bunch up a couple other pieces of foil into large balls and throw inside cornucopia. This will keep the shape sturdy with all the bread dough around it.

Step 4: You Knead It

Place dough on a floured work surface. Roll out quite flat then use a pizza cutter or knife to turn them into strips. Set a small blob of dough aside to make decorative leaves.

Step 5: Wrap It Up

Spray the entire exterior of the foil cornucopia with oil. Place on a greased baking sheet then begin wrapping the foil with the strips of dough, starting at the tail end. 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.

Step 6: Finishing Touches

Form some of the leftover dough into leaves. Use a knife to make indentations and textures. Beat the egg with the water in a bowl. Put some egg on the back of the leaves to attach to cornucopia. Brush the rest of the egg wash onto the entire cornucopia exterior.

Step 7: Bake and Serve

Bake in preheated oven for 15-20 minutes, or until golden. Allow to cool completely, then remove all the foil from the inside and transfer to a large dish. Fill with any foods you like. I filled mine with fruit and served with a bread dip made of:

  • 10 ounces hot salsa
  • 4 ounces softened cream cheese

Mix well in a bowl and serve alongside.

    Thank you so much! Unfortunately, I clearly remember eating about 80% of this myself all in one go-- oops ;D You should try it sometime (but have better self-control than me)!
