Mama and Baby Bear Pull-Apart Bread | 親子のクマちぎりパン

These little bears are looking up at you and begging you to eat them! These are super simple to make and don’t take much time at all! It’s so much fun to roll them into their little shapes, and so satisfying to see them all stuffed into the loaf pans. The dough isn’t too sweet, so you could definitely fill them with a savoury filling as well, such as bocconcini cheese and prosciutto!  You could also make one loaf sweet and another savoury!

Ingredients (makes 2 pull apart loaves)

❤ 500g bread flour
❤ 3 tbsp + 1tsp butter
❤ 5 tbsp sugar
❤ 5 tsp active dry yeast
❤ 350ml milk

❤ 15g cake flour
❤ 50g sugar
❤ 1 whole egg
❤ 200ml milk
❤ vanilla extract
❤ 20g milk chocolate, melted
❤ 20g white chocolate, melted


For the dough:
1. Place the milk and butter in a large, microwave-safe bowl, and microwave at 500W for 2 min 30 seconds.
2. Add and whisk in the sugar and yeast. Then add the flour and fully combine, kneading for 2-3 minutes in the bowl.
3. Place the bowl back in the microwave and microwave at 200W for 3 min 30 seconds. Then knead for an additional 2-3 minutes, and cover with a damp dishcloth and allow to rise for 1 hour. Make the custard filling in the meantime.
4. Divide the dough into 16 pieces. Then tear off a small piece of dough from each larger piece, and divide in half, so that you have one large piece of dough and two smaller pieces. For each bear, flatten the larger piece into a pancake and place 1-2 tsp of custard in the center. Shape the dough into a ball, and place in a buttered 9×5 inch loaf pan. Roll the two smaller pieces into balls, and once all of the bodies are filled and placed in the pan, stick the ears on top of each bear. 8 bears will fit in each loaf pan.
5. Bake at 445F for 15-20 minutes, covering with aluminum foil if they are browning too quickly.
6. Remove from the oven and place them, still in the loaf pans, on a wire rack and cool completely.
7. Then decorate the bears as desired. I drew on chocolate faces, and stuck heart-shaped candies onto the ears with chocolate, to look like bows.

For the custard:
1. Sift the flour and sugar into a microwave-safe bowl and whisk together. Add the milk, and once fully combined, add the egg and mix well.
2. Cover with plastic wrap and microwave for 2 min 30 seconds. Remove and mix well, then microwave for an additional 2 min 30 seconds. Then add the vanilla and mix well.
3. Divide the custard into two bowls, and add your desired flavours of chocolate into each bowl. I added Lindt Excellence Coconut (white chocolate) and Lindt Excellence Strawberry (dark chocolate).

    If my microwave’s min is 800W, how to adjust my time control for all steps with microwave? Pls help. Tks!

      I apologize for taking so long to reply! I would just shorten the time that you microwave the ingredients for (maybe microwave them for 1/4 of the time?), and cook them until the result looks like the dough in the video. Hope this helps!! ^_^
