Bear Cartoon Character Bread Buns 小熊小面包

Earlier i saw this type of cute cartoon character bread buns shared in few Japanese Instagram. It inspired me to make some, and now i am addicted to it ^_^. There is so much of fun looking at them and a bit heartache to enjoy them, LOL.







Let me show you how to make them...



I need little hand of my little son Desmond on rolling these tiny balls for the ear ^_^




Actually the first batch i made these Winnie the Pooh bread buns that using pumpkin dough..

Since these are hand made, so they have difference face expression, so cute!


They are too cute to be eaten ^_^

Bear Cartoon Character Bread Buns 小熊小面包

For the bread
350g High protein flour or bread flour
40g caster sugar
15g cocoa powder (I use Valrhona cocoa powder)
1/2tsp fine salt
1tsp instant yeast
230g fresh milk
25g unsalted butter, room temperature


For decorate the bear face
White chocolate
Dark chocolate
milk

Method
  1. In a stand mixer, add in bread ingredients except butter, mix and knead till smooth.
  2. Add in butter, knead till elastic and shining dough. Cover and set aside to proof till double in size.
  3. Punch down the dough to expel air, to weight 35g each for 16 portions for the body and shape into round ball. And also to weight 2g each for the ear for 32 portions, rest for 15mins.
  4. Take 35g dough and fill in ~1tsp Nutella, wrap and shape into ball, place into a baking pan (9’x9’), repeat till finished.
  5. Brush milk on the dough, then place two 2g dough for the ear, lightly press to stick. Repeat till all ear dough finished .Cover and let is proof for another 30-45mins.
  6. Bake at pre-heated oven at 180C for 20mins, remove from baking tin, set aside till completely cool down before decorate it.
  7. Melt white chocolate, then use a Chinese brush to paint at the centre. Melt dark chocolate, fill in a piping bag, then make the eyes, nose and mouth.
  8. Store in air-tight container to avoid bread buns turned dry quickly.

Pris said...

hiii, thanks so much for sharing the recipe!
Just want to ask for step 1 & 2, can I use mixer or should I use hands?
Previously I tried your sausage roll recipe and the dough couldn't rise, I wonder is it because I kneaded it for too long?
Thanks in advance :)

Sonia ~ Nasi Lemak Lover said...

Pris, for step 1 & 2, i use KA stand mixer. Ya, do not over knead the dough, usually when i use KA mixer, it took 20mins from begining till dough is done. Also to rise a good dough, you need warm weather, so try to do it during hot weather time.

Hi, may I know what is the different of this recipe compare to the overnight dough recipe? Will the bun soft as overnight dough recipe?
Pls advise. Tqvm

Sonia ~ Nasi Lemak Lover said...

Anonymous , it is still soft after overnight but not as moist if compare to overnight dough.

Michelle said...

Hi,

May I know when you said "knead till elastic and shining dough", is this the window panel stage?

Sonia ~ Nasi Lemak Lover said...

Michelle, usually i don't knead till window panel stage, so long elastic , smooth and shinning. of course you can knead till window pane stage, it will be even better.

Hi,
May I know while proofing for double size, how Long will tat be? N The last proofing do I need to cover w damp cloth or just leave it open air? Thank

Sonia ~ Nasi Lemak Lover said...

Casey, sorry i didn't record the exact amount

Zune, it depend on the weather, if weather is warm, usually take about 45-60mins. yes please cover with damp cloth for 2nd proofing also.

Hello, I found this by picture and took me by heart and tried it the next day :) it was my first baking with yeast, so I was curious :) i changed Nutella for cherry jam, and it gave a savoury kich to the sweetnes. and it was jummy. next time i will have to make more, so they will last longer then one hour :) taking your recipe to Europe and thx a lot! a.k.
