You Will Need:

  • 375g Strong Bread flour
  • 1 Sachet of Yeast
  • ½ teaspoon Salt
  • 200ml Warm Water
  • 40g Butter
  • Egg/Milk
  • Carrot Sticks, Parsley, Olives

How To Make Bunny Bread:

  1. Pre heat the oven to Gas 6/200c/400f.
  2. Rub the butter into the flour.
  3. Add the yeast & salt, and stir through.
  4. Test the temperature of the water by placing your finger in, it should feel warm; measure out what you need and pour this slowly into the flour, mixing with a spoon, until you have a soft dough.   Don’t worry if you have liquid left, you don’t want to make the dough too wet!
  5. The dough shouldn’t be a sticky cake mix, but firm, soft dough.
  6. Knead the dough for 10 minutes, on a work surface (with some flour if required, although you don’t want to get your dough too dry).
  7. Divide the dough into 3 pieces, one a little larger than the others. Shape the largest piece into a bunny tummy, and use another piece to make bunny ears and a face, and the final piece to make all the paws.  Join it all together and place your bunny on a baking tray, leaving it to rise in a warm place.
  8. Once it has risen, glaze with egg or milk & place it in the oven for 20-25 minutes.
  9. Place the bunny on a surface, chop some carrots, and give a layer of lettuce grass, some carrot teeth and olives to make the eyes show.
