How to eat a beard – Movember Bread!

moustache bread

Ahoy everyone!

Have you ever imagined eating a moustache or a beard?

No?

Neither have we, but we’re still ecstatic with our Movember bread. It’s the first in a series of loaves we’ve been working on to see what fantastic shapes we can come up with, using the Doodlebread kit and our new 3D printer!

Check out the video!

Here’s what you need to make the doughs:

White dough

  1. 200g strong white bread flour
  2. 1g salt
  3. 2g sugar
  4. 4g dried yeast
  5. Veg oil
  6. 120ml warm water

Throw it all in a bowl and give it a quick mix to make sure it’s as evenly distributed as possible. Make a little well in the centre with your spoon and pour in a little vegetable oil, then add the water. Mix it all up, you can add a little more flour or water as you go, if you think it’s too wet or dry. Then do exactly the same with the cocoa dough

Cocoa dough

  1. 100g strong white bread flour
  2. 1 teaspoon of cocoa powder
  3. 1g salt
  4. 2g sugar
  5. 4g dried yeast
  6. Veg oil
  7. 60ml warm water

BUT I KNEEEAD YOU!!! 

Next is the part that puts hairs on your chest, face, and also your loaf, kneading

Using the heel of your hand and or you fists, fold, squash, pummel, and punish that dough till its bruised and bouncy. Then it’s time to pack it into the tin and let it rise.

We realise that it’s near the end of November and maybe you’re thinking we’re a bit late with this, but it’s just now that those beards will be reaching full power!

And anyway, Christmas is just around the corner, maybe Nativity Sandwiches could become a thing in the playground?
