Like every foodie I like buying stuff for my kitchen. Most of the time is something that I actually need….. that`s most of the time. But there is these days where I get myself lost in the shops with the only idea of finding something interesting and new. For this special utensils I already have two cabinets dedicated to the idea of “something special”. These special things might be macaroons baking tray, fancy plates or bread sticks set. Today`s post is all about this cabinet and the bread sticks set.
The set includes- baking tray and recipes for sweet and savory bred sticks. In addition you would need Decopen, which I have from my macaroons set. And before you roll your eyes over these fancy utensils, let me tell you that you won`t need any of it if you decide to try the recipe. However it is easier and less messy with it.
Back to the recipe I must say I felt a bit disappointed. The enclosed recipe book promised to have enough dough for three batches, but even though I used weight scale the quantity was enough for two only. My frustration came up when following the instructions I cooked my first batch into the microwave. BIG BIG mistake. Yes they were cooked, but soggy and unappetizing. I never believe in a recipes for microwave and this is another proof not to. I preheat my oven and baked my second batch for 15 mins. And finally- success. Crispy, crunchy and delicious bread sticks.
I seasoned with some of my favorite spices- rosemary, sea salt and sesame seeds. But feel free to try your favorite- like BBQ powder, cayenne pepper, cumin….. the options are endless.
Ingredients: Enough for approximately 60 bread sticks (10 cm long)
– 200 g all purpose flour
– 200 ml water
– 5 g salt
– 6 g baking powder
– 30 ml olive oil
– rosemary, seal salt and sesame seeds for seasoning
Mix all the ingredients in a bowl. Preheat the oven to 180 degrees Celsius. Spread the dough using Decopan or otherwise use pipping bag. Season with the spices and bake for 15 mins. Let it cool before serving for extra crunch.
