Bread Rolls with Birdie Faces

Bread Rolls with Birdie Faces

These bread rolls are easy and cute. They would make great gifts.


Dough of your choice (use dough that finished its first rising)
as needed
(Example bread dough recipe:
Recipe ID: 1863323)
Almonds (or other nuts)
as needed
Chocolate, raisins, decorating pen, or etc.
as needed


1. Divide the risen dough, form into balls, and let it rest.
2. After the dough has rested, reshape the balls again, put them on the baking tray lined with parchment paper, and use the bread-rising setting of your oven to let the dough rise again. Once the second rising is finished, preheat the oven.
3. While waiting for the oven to heat up, push in a nut in the center of each dough, pressing down firmly until only half of the nut is sticking out. Push in chocolate chips or raisins to both sides. You could also stick nori seaweed.
4. I referred to this recipe for a Homemade Chocolate Decorating Pen (Recipe ID: 1585101) to draw the eyes, while waiting for the oven to heat up.
5. Bake the bread in the preheated oven accordingly. You could use a chocolate decorating pen to draw the eyes after baking the bread.
6. I recommend user Hiremama's "Sweet Maple Bread" (Recipe ID: 1871670). It's so delicious.
