Bread, Bunnies, Cuteness… what is not to love about these Easter Bunny shaped rolls? You know they are going to look so good on your table this Easter and the kids will absolutely love them!
The secret to shaping the bunny ears is to use kitchen scissors and to work with the dough while it is still soft. You may want to make a practice batch to perfect the art of forming the ears before serving a plate up to your guests. Unless of course they love rustic rabbits!
Use your favourite roll recipe, or use the one below and you are all set!
Here is how you can recreate them…
- 2-1/2 to 3 cups all-purpose flour
- 2 tablespoons sugar
- 1 package (1/4 ounce) active dry yeast
- 1 teaspoon salt
- 1 cup (8 ounces) sour cream
- 1/4 cup water
- 2 tablespoons butter
- 1 egg
- Put the butter, the sour cream and water in a small saucepan and heat, but do not cook. Cool to tepid then add the remaining ingredients. Put in a kneader (or use your kneader attachment on your mixer if you have one). If thick add more water.
- Let it rise double and cut into 16 equal parts.
- Roll into ball shapes and slightly press down on a lined baking tray or a silicone baking mat and cut the ears with kitchen scissors. Make sure you do this while the dough is STILL SOFT. Make sure you smooth the edges around, so you do not end up with gremlin shaped horns.
- The eyes can then be put in, use pepper grains or similar.
- Bake at 190°C for about 10 minutes or until golden brown.
