Teddy bear bread

Description: Bread shaped into cute Teddy bears, inspired by this photo


  • 300 g strong wheat flour
  • 1 sachet (about 5g) instant dry yeast
  • 1 tablespoon sugar
  • 1 level teaspoon salt
  • 40 g unsalted butter, room temperature
  • 1 egg (medium size, about 50 gr)
  • 175 ml whole milk


  1. Put the flour and yeast in a bowl and combine. Add the sugar and salt
  2. Pour the egg and milk into the bowl.
  3. Use a large spoon (or pastry scraper) to mix everything together.
  4. Take the dough out of the bowl and knead. You will feel the dough become elastic after kneading for about 5 minutes.
  5. Add the butter and knead the dough for 5-10 minutes or until the dough is soft, pliable, smooth and slightly shiny, almost satiny.
  6. Put the dough into a lightly floured bowl and cover with a cloth.
  7. Let the dough rise in a warm place until its size doubles (1 – 1 ½ hour depending on the room temperature).
  8. Preheat oven to 400º F.
  9. Take the dough out of the bowl, deflate it by touching lightly.
  10. Cut the dough into 16 pieces, and roll each of them (excepting one we will use for the ears) into a ball.
  11. Place them on a paper parchment, and prepare small round ears with the remainig dough
  12. Stick the ears to each ball with some water, and let the Teddy bear breads rest for 15 minutes.
  13. Bake for about 10-15 minutes, until golden brown
  14. Let the breads cool, draw the eyes and nose with a black edible writter, and serve inside a mug. Enjoy!

    This looks like the best thing. Reminds me of little meat pies that my mom used to make. They looked like little piglets!

    How precious, my mama used to make funny face hamburgers when I was little. They had a meat filling similar to meat loaf and faces decorated with pimento mouths and bits if raisins for the eyes. Makes me feel happy just to think about them.
