Use the Dough setting on your bread machine, and complete the first rising.
Punch down the dough lightly, and divide into 8 pieces. Leave to rest for about 15 minutes.
Grease the mold (I've also lined it on the bottom with paper to make sure the bread doesn't stick).
Roll the dough into neat balls, and put into the mold.
Let rise a 2nd time.
The photo shows the dough after it's risen.
Optionally brush with some beaten egg (not listed in the ingredients).
Bake in a pre-heated 190 to 200°C oven. Take it out once it's baked, and drop down onto a hard surface from a little distance to 'shock' it. Please adjust the baking time and temperature depending on your oven.
Then, just get your favorite sandwich fillings together.
Cut the bread halfway through, and spread with butter.
Put in lots of filling - and a gorgeous wreath of sandwich is finished.
You can tear off however much you like. They're so fun to each! Try them for a child's birthday party.

Story Behind this Recipe
This is a variation of the popular "Whole Wheat Buns: Homemade Mos Burger Style Burger" - Recipe ID: 915407 - in the shape of a wreath that you can rip apart. I changed the recipe a bit and made it egg-free. Fragrant bread goes well with everything. The cute flower shape is great for parties.
Since this is a very light and fluffy bread, I've lined the mold with some paper half-heartedly to prevent the bread from sticking even if the mold is greased too - but you can omit this if you like. When cutting into the bread in Step 9, be careful not to cut all the way through.
