Easter Fun

We tried out the Bunny Bun idea that seems to be ALL over the internet right now. I think it's originally used for dumplings or wrapped pineapple buns but we wanted something to go with our boiled eggs. We used our standard bread recipe:

60ml water, (with 2/3 tsp yeast added in), for every 100g high grade flour (known as 60% hydration), a touch of salt, 2 tsp cider vinegar, 2 tsp sugar. Mix everything up and knead dough, then leave to rise in the bowl in a warm place for 2 hrs approx. Knead dough and shape in to the buns and leave to sit for 20 mins approx before baking at 180C for approx 12 mins, (watch them to be sure on cooking time).

Next time we do these we'll be sure to make the ears longer so they look less like cats!

The dough

All done, super yummy and crunchy!

We made some Easter bunny biscuits yesterday and iced them today.
