Baking at Easter - preparing the yeast bunnies
Mix the dry yeast with 120 ml lukewarm oat drink and 3 tbsp coconut blossom sugar in a bowl. Let it sit for 10 minutes (small bubbles should form on the surface).
Meanwhile, melt the margarine and let it cool down a bit. The margarine should not be warmer than 35-40 °.
Put the flour, the remaining coconut blossom sugar and the pinch of salt in a bowl and mix everything together well.
Now add the remaining oatmeal, the melted margarine, the yeast mixture and some vanilla. Then it's time to knead properly. Preferably about 5-10 minutes until a smooth dough is formed.
Time to rest: Let the dough rest in a warm place without draft for 1-2 hours.
When the yeast dough has risen nicely, divide it into 10-12 dough balls of the same size. Now some skill is required because it's time to get the bunnies in shape. To do this, roll each ball into a "rod". Cut off 1-2 cm from each and form small balls – these will later become the bunny tails.
Now take the yeast sticks and intertwine both ends twice. Sounds more complicated than it is, I promise. Then place the little ball tail and off you go onto the baking tray (which you should ideally have lined with baking paper beforehand).
After so much work, the bunnies deserve a little break: give them another 20-25 minutes of walking time in a warm place. Meanwhile, preheat the oven to 180° top and bottom heat.
Brush the bunnies with some oat milk and optionally with pearl sugar and bake them for 20-25 minutes until golden brown. Then let them cool down with the oven door slightly open.
Now comes the best part: spread our chocolaty nucao spread or jam on your bunny and really enjoy it.
