Woof Woof!~

When I saw these..I knew I had to try them~ And let's not wonder  which Alphabet boys came to mind~:)
I found them posted by Mayumi..so so cute..Hers are cuter..But the first time is always "Un essai" right?

They reminded me of when I made the piggy bread:)
I had the same pleasure making these.Too cute for words..
I used the bread recipe  I think  she suggested..  but only 1/2 the recipe..I had enough for the Doggie Buns..  and a small loaf of bread.I say I think because I have a copy..but I didn't bookmark it and cannot find it on her blog:(
The bread was so delicious I have made it twice since..just the bread~I mix all in the bread machine.. take the dough out..shape..slit and let rise again..and bake.

When the bread comes out of the oven the crust is crisp..later it becomes soft..
It has air holes:)  Everything..
I love it because it is soft.


La Recette:

2 1/2 cups warm water
2 tbsps yeast
3 tbsps sugar
 2 tbsp white vinegar
 1 tbsp salt
 1/3 cup oil
6-7 cups of flour.

As I mentioned..I put everything(But half the first time) in the bread machine on dough cycle..
The next 2 times..I again did half the recipe and it made a nice big loaf:)






To make the Doggie bread:

★How to make the dog bread★

Make the dough from your favorite bread recipe, using a bread maker.
Select DOUGH mode.
When it's done, push all the air out of the dough with your hands.
Divide it into 10(if you make the dough with about 250g flour) and roll each into a ball. Cover with wet paper towels and rest for 15mins.
Make each into a oval shape.
Cut with a knife to make the ears of the dogs, and let the dough rise until about double in size.
After the rise, make eyes and noses with black beans.
Bake for about 10 mins at 400

Recipe and way of making the bread courtesy of Mayumi's blog.

..Hope les boys enjoy the little hot dog buns:)

  9. When I lived in Manhattan I went to a few Dog Birthday parties at a chic Soho joint. I always brought dog cookies in the shape of a few dog breeds... of course the St Bernard was the most popular since the Bday boy was a St Bernard as was my dog. It was a lot of fun (even if a bother to transport). Love the way you shot your treats... they are adorable!!
