Bunnies

Bunnies

Here is an interesting idea for modelling dough. Create bunnies or sheep and suprise your family members and friends for Easter. This amount of dough is enough for two large bunnies or a basket of small bunnies. I always do a double amount of dough and make a sheep. The dough can be filled with different fillings, or, like me, without stuffing and served with the meal instead of bread.  Lets be creative!

Ingredients for dough:

600g of flour

1 teaspoon of sugar

1 teaspoon of salt

1 envelope (7g) of yeast

350ml of warm milk

75ml of oil

1 egg

Instructions:

Stir the yeast into warm milk and add sugar. Then add salt into flour, mix it and add yeast mixture in it. Then add the oil and knead until you get a smooth dough. Put it away for 30 minutes to double in size.

When the dough has doubled in size, separate it in two parts. Form two balls from each part of the dough ( big and small ) for the body and head (you can fill the balls with any filling of your choice or leave it without filling). Then form seven little balls for nose, ears and paws. Make eyes out of the peppercorn and mustache from spaghetti (as shown on the picture).

Put the bunnies on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper. Brush them with stiren egg and sprinkle with sesame, flaxseed or poppy.

Bunnies - before baking

Bake in a preheated oven at 200 degrees Celsius (392 degrees Fahrenheit) for 15 minutes. From the same amount of dough you can make a sheep. Separate the dough on a larger ball for the head and 15 smaller balls for body and legs (as shown on the picture).

Bunnies - sheep

You can fill the balls with any filling of your choice or leave it without filling. Put the sheep in a baking sheet lined with parchment paper. Brush it with stiren egg and sprinkle with sesame, flaxseed or poppy. Bake in a preheated oven at 200 degrees Celsius (392 degrees Fahrenheit) for 15 minutes.

Put bunnies and sheep in a little basket or on a platter and serve.
