Santa's bread

Santa's bread

If you knead and leaven the dough in the bread machine (like me), put all the ingredients in the following order in the bread machine: warm milk, egg, melted butter, sugar, sifted flour, yeast and salt. The program of my bread machine is one hour and 15 minutes (time in which it kneaded and leavened).

If you want to knead the dough by hand, first prepare the yeast mayonnaise, ½ teaspoon of sugar, 50ml of warm milk, 5 tablespoons of flour. Let it rise for 20 minutes, warm.

Sift the flour into a bowl and add in its center the lightly beaten egg with a fork, the ground sugar, the slightly warm milk, the salt and the soft butter. Knead until the dough becomes elastic and no longer sticks to your hands.

Cover the bowl with food-grade plastic wrap and let the dough rise for 90 minutes, in a place away from cold air currents. After the dough has risen enough, knead a little and divide it into 2 pieces, a larger piece and a smaller piece.

Take the larger piece of dough and give it a rounded triangle shape. This represents Santa's head and hat.

Take the smaller piece of dough and divide it in half. A part must be shaped into a beard. Use a slicer to fringe the dough as if you were making some curls. Then stick the beard on Santa's face (a large piece of dough).

You will use the remaining dough to make a mustache, lips, nose, hat edge and tassels. You make the mustard from 6 dough fringes. The nose can be a ball of dough, placed right where the beard strands start. For the edge of the hat you can roll the dough like a thick rope, then stick it to the hat, in the part where it would have the edge, along the head. And tassels can be like the nose, but a little bigger.

For the eyes use 2 halves of olive or 2 raisins.

Beat the egg yolks well with the milk in a bowl. First grease Santa's face and beard and then add the red food coloring to the yolk and grease Santa's hat, then his nose and lips.

Bake the bread for 25-30 minutes, at 180 degrees Celsius, until nicely browned.

Bread `Santa Claus with Green Eyes`

From the evening we sift the flour and leave it at room temperature and the next day we start preparing the dough.

Put the yeast to soak in a little warm water (not hot, but still warmer). While the yeast is melting and leavening, we mix the flour with the salt and measure the natural mayonnaise, if we use it, and if we don't have something like that we put the oil in the flour and then the yeast.

Mix with your fingers and start adding water from the amount provided in the recipe and knead. When the dough has become completely soft and just a little sticky, cover it and leave it to cool for a few hours. Remove the dough from the cold and start shaping.

The dough should be quite thick, full of air bubbles, soft and non-sticky.

We take two smaller pieces of dough and round them in the palms. one of the balls will be the nose, so it should not be too big, and the second ball will be the pompom of Santa's hat so it can be a little, a little bigger than the nose and we put it aside.

Then we cut another piece of dough about the size of a fist and this will be a mustache.
another piece, a little bigger than the one set aside for the mustache, we cut the dough and put it aside because this will become Santa's beard and another piece of dough that will become the edge of the hat.

We will spread the rest of the dough in a somewhat conical shape but with quite rounded tips. the pictures will better exemplify the necessary steps.

So spread the dough in a conical shape with rounded tips and from the piece of dough set aside for the "edge of the hat" we will delimit the head and the hat of Santa. If you want the edge of the hat, you can braid or leave only a simple banderola and stick it to the conical dough (Santa's head) with the help of the beaten egg.

The tip of the so-called cone is pulled towards the edge of the cap in such a way as to form a fallen fez and attach to the tip, the ball provided for the pompom.

Let's not forget to glue the fold of the hat with beaten egg and the pompom as well, otherwise during baking the top of the hat will rise and the pompom will fall.

Also with beaten egg we will glue Santa's eyes, either from black raisins and large size, we position them as we want but to be as high as possible, towards the edge of the hat or from dried dates and kiwis then we cut two slices from dates and cut two pieces of green fruit which we will fix inside the slices of dates, we position on Santa's face and glue with egg and then we attach Santa's nose (the little ball left waiting).

Now we take the piece of dough that we kept for Santa's beard, we spread it in a shape of half a circle, a bit bigger because we have to give volume to Santa's beard.

Right under the old man's nose we stick a piece of dough with the egg and we make sure to pull the corners towards the forehead. With a kitchen scissors we start to cut thin strips of beard dough without destroying the dough underneath and as we cut them we twist them and arrange them in a more disordered shape.

After we finished with the beard, we took the last piece left, the one for the mustache, which we spread out in the shape of a rectangle. We glue this rectangle with egg just under Santa's nose so that it is with the big side glued to the nose.

Then we cut strips, just like the beard, and arrange them as we think they look like a Santa Claus mustache.

We then cover the whole model with a food foil (the foil should be greased with oil so that it does not stick to the dough during leavening).

Leave to rise and when it has doubled in volume, remove the foil. Grease with a beaten egg all over Santa's head except for Santa's hat and nose. we grease the pompom with egg because it will remain white.

After we have finished greasing with egg, add 5-6 drops of food red to the rest of the remaining egg. If the color is not very concentrated then we can add more until we get a suitable red color.

We grease Santa's hat, his nose and brown his cheeks a little, but we are careful not to lose color elsewhere.

Put in the preheated oven over medium heat (360-365 f / 180C) and bake until the bread is baked.

If you have the impression that it bakes too quickly on the surface then cover with aluminum foil and lower the temperature in the oven a little and bake until done.

Cool on a grill and place the bread on fir branches or on special Christmas supports.
Serve with pleasure and love with your favorite food.

The advantages are innumerable:

1. You save time and money.

A ready-made product it can't be cheaper than one you make at home. In addition, you don't run crazy for hours in the shops, you don't consume petrol or pay for a taxi / public transport, you don't stay in traffic for half a day.

Surely you will spend time documenting yourself or purchasing the necessary ingredients or components. Most of the time, however, you can handle what you have around the house, whether it's a cookie recipe, a cosmetic product or a toy.

In addition, you can make a small production line and make as many people happy with the same type of gift.

I quickly searched the net and found some very nice variants of home-made gifts. For example, for mom, mother-in-law and sister-in-law you can do this body butter or scrub. For your child and his cousins ​​you can be inspired by these toys or from the recipes below, from the end of the article. You can do this for your husband, father, brother and father-in-law bow (maybe for each on other colors) .etc.

2. You relax. There have been a lot of studies on how relaxing DIY (do it yourself) activities are. It is not in vain that DIY courses and workshops have flourished. The modern man, used to sitting at his desk all day, needs to spend time doing something creative that will take his mind off his daily worries.

3. Spend quality time with your loved ones. Children in particular will be extremely excited to participate. On the blog there is a special article dedicated to the benefits of cooking with the little ones.

4. Your satisfaction and that of those who receive the gift will be much greater. I don't know how others are but I have a huge joy when I manage to produce an object, to make some biscuits or a hand cream with my own hands. If they still like the result of the gifts, it's even better. The fact that a person puts soul, creativity and imagination, in addition to time and money, to make you a gift, makes you feel really special.

5. It is more environmentally friendly, less polluting. Think of the whole industry used to produce, on a large scale, a scarf, a toy, some biscuits.

6. It is a personalized product. There will certainly be no gifts identical to those made by you, together with your loved ones.

7. Make sure they are made properly from quality ingredients or components. The fact that you choose exactly what you put in each recipe and how you prepare it gives you much more control over the final result. We all know how hard the labels on food or cosmetics lie today.

Cake with poppy seeds

Unfortunately, due to lack of time, many Romanians prefer to buy it, but the taste of freshly baked cake at home does not compare with any other option available on the market. In addition, if you prepare it at home, you know for sure which ingredients are used and you can more easily check their freshness. It's not as hard as you think to knead and bake homemade cake, and the recipe I propose to you is cake with poppy seeds , a less popular option, but very tasty. If you still prefer to prepare a classic recipe, try the cake fluffy with walnuts .
