serving15(original recipe makes 15 small bread bears)
200 g/7,1oz bread flour
110 g/3,9oz water(use lukewarm water during wintertime)
1teaspoon(3g/0,1oz) instant dry yeast
①Get two bowls ready, and put bread flour and salt in one.
Put the water(use lukewarm water during wintertime), sugar, and dry yeast into
the other bowl and mix together thoroughly. Add this mixture into the bowl
containing the bread flour, and knead.
②When the mixture becomes one cluster, take it out from the bowl, and knead the
cluster until the surface of the dough becomes smooth.
When the surface becomes smooth, add butter and knead thoroughly once more.
Then, roll the dough into a ball and put into a bowl.
③Put plastic wrap onto the bowl. Then, by keeping this bowl somewhere warm,
do the primary fermenting until the dough blows up to twice its size.
④Take out the dough from the bowl while being careful not to damage it
First of all, divide the dough into 15 equal parts.At this time, theweight of each part should be of about 22g～23g(about 0,8oz).
Next, divide each of the parts in the following way:
- 2 pieces of dough of 1grams(0,04oz) each, for the ears
- a piece of about 22 grams(about 0,8oz) for the head
Roll each piece of dough into a ball.
Let the dough sit for 15 to 20 minutes after placing a fully wrung wet cloth on top.
⑤Lightly flatten the dough and punch it down. Re-roll all of them.
Firmly attach the ear portions (1g × 2) to the large rounded dough and create a bear
shape.Put on an oven plate with a baking sheet.
Put the bear-shaped dough on an oven plate, and attach them to other dough that you
placed on the tray before (as seen in the picture.).
To prevent the dough from drying up, place plastic wrap and a fully wrung wet cloth on top.
Make sure the plastic wrap does not stick to the dough.
⑥Do the secondary fermenting until the dough blows up to twice its size.
Pre-heat at 190℃(370F) and bake for 20 minutes.
After the bread is baked, create eyes and noses using toasted nori seaweed or chocolate.
