We made a some Easter Bunny bread rolls using this recipe, along with some Hedgehogs & Easter Eggs which Minnie then added to her Bakery!
500g strong bread flour (we used half white & half wholemeal)
1 tsp of salt
1 tsp of sugar
1 tsp of Doves Farm quick yeast
275ml hand hot water
1 tbsp vegetable oil
1. Mix together the flour, salt, sugar & quick yeast
2. Pour in the water & mix the ingredients together to form a rough dough
3. Knead the dough on a lightly floured surface
4. Cut & mould the dough into your desired shape
5. Place on a lightly greased tin/baking sheet
6. Cover with a clean damp cloth & leave to rise somewhere warm for 25mins (we placed our baking trays next to our boiler)
7. Remove cloth & place in a preheated oven for 20-45 mins depending on size of bread. (Our rolls took around 20mins to cook)
Here's how we got on...
|Weighing & exploring the texture of the flour|
|Mixing our dough|
|Kneading the dough|
|Exploring the properties of the dough|
|Discovering its elasticity|
|Making Easter Bunny bread using our rabbit cookie cutter|
|Our Easter Bunny with raisins added for eyes|
Once our bread had been cooked & cooled I had intended to take a photo of all our creations together... but Minnie had other ideas. The bread went straight into her Baker's Shop ready to sell to her customers, & ready for 'Minnie the Baker' to (ahem) sample! I did manage to snap a couple of pics before the bread disappeared.
|The raisin eyes & noses were just too tempting!|

We will definitely be making this bread again.
Our Easter bunny bread will go really well with our eggs for our Easter Day breakfast!
