Goodwill Find!

Found this at Goodwill for a couple of dollars. Was not sure what it was but there were recipes on the roll of paper! So I bought it and after getting it home and looking at the instructions, it was made to bake a round loaf of bread! It is glass, and is made of Pyrex.

So I thought I would give it a try and see what happens! Use a paper towel and grease the inside, then put a couple of tablespoons of cornmeal inside and roll it around to coat the whole inside.

My dough after kneading, before it raised.

After it raised the first time and after punching it down and shaping it to fit. Fold a long sheet of waxed paper and stick it through the tube.

Place dough on one end of waxed paper, pull it through until dough is in center of the tube. Then roll the tube to dump the dough off of the paper! Then...let it rise again until nearly doubled,

and it will almost fill the tube.

Place aluminum foil over each end so the dough doesn't dry out and place it in a warm place. I use my oven that has been slightly warmed then turned off. (had another bowl of dough rising too, for refrigerator rolls).

After baking and cooling, it is ready for slicing and being spread with garlic butter and eaten with your spaghetti!!

Wow. Neat. So that is how you made that bread you brought last Sunday. Thought you just picked up a loaf of French bread at the store. Bet you got it for a song compared to it's original price.
