Easter Bunnies/Lapins de Pâques

Easter is around the corner and everyone here are getting ready for the easter celebrations. Its a long weekend for us and am sure its going be bit busy for me as always,if kids are at home.As most of my followers know,i love to be a part of baking events, so that i can learn more about the baking especially when its comes with breads with yeasts. Thank god till now yeast beast will always behave kind with me, coming to this Easter bunnies bread,our this month's Defi Boulange, a fabulous bread baking event by Nadia and Manue challenged us with damn cute and attractive Easter special bunny shaped breads.

I baked some bunnies during last weekend, these bunnies turned out extremely spongy,soft and mildly flavorful coz of the addition of vanilla extract. It was a big hit among my kids,they enjoyed thoroughly with their favourite chocolate drink and i enjoyed with my usual masala chai. An excellent snack,quite filling and the bread dough was super soft as like brioche with mild sweet. Thanks to both Nadia and Manue for pulling me to make this adorable bunnies at home.

4cups Bread flour or all purpose flour
1tbsp Active dry yeast
1/2cup Milk (luke warm)
1/4cup Sugar +1tsp Sugar
1tsp Vanilla extract
1tsp Salt
1no Egg
100grms Butter
1no Egg yolk+1tsp Milk (for brushing)
Chocolate chips (as per need)

Mix the yeast,a teaspoon of sugar and salt to the luke warm milk, keep aside until the yeast turns foamy.

Meanwhile take the flour,egg,sugar in a large bowl, add gradually the foamy yeast and turn everything as a soft dough, now add the butter and knead everything for 10minutes.

Arrange the dough in a bowl covered with a towel,keep aside for atleast for 2hours until they double.

Knead the dough well and divide it as 6 large balls.

Divide each balls as small ball,large ball and a medium ball.

Roll the large ball as a rope, while the medium ball as oval shaped ball and small ball as round ball.

Roll the long rope like dough as shown in the picture, cut the oval shape ball in the middle to half of the ball and separate it to make bunny's ears.

Keep the small ball as shown in picture to make the bunny's tail.Arrange the rolled bunnies over a baking tray.

Keep the baking tray in a warm place for half an hour.

Preheat the oven to 350F for 5minutes.

Mix the egg yolk with milk for brushing together.

Place a chocolate chip on the head of the bunny to make an eye.

Now brush the unbaked bunnies generously.

Bake them for 20-25minutes until the crust turns golden brown.

Cool it completely on a wire rack and enjoy.
