Olga my friend from from Madrid gave me this idea making bread in a cupcake mould. She calls it cupbread. I have always wanted to make bread like her but did not dare to until now. You see, I consider her the best baker of Madrid if not of Spain! I hope she likes my cupbread. See for yourself at Cocinando con Kisa.
Cupbread with Poppy Seeds
325g of bread flour
130g of lukewarm water
8g of salt
10g of sugar
25g of olive oil
15g of fresh yeast
olive oil for brushing and some poppy seeds
The recipe above I actually did not follow down to a tee because I did not have fresh yeast so the luke warm water I use for a packet of dry yeast instead. Kneaded everything together for 5 minutes and let the dough rise for an hour or until double in size.
Spread the dough into a rectangle and cut into strips that are slightly tapered at the end.
Brush strips with olive oil, sprinkle poppy seeds and roll to a cone.
Put in muffin pan and let rise for an hour in a warm place and then bake in a 350F oven for 18 to 20 minutes.
Serve warm if you wish for they are really good with butter.
Here's a good looking one for you.
