  • 120ml (4fl oz) double cream
  • 130ml (4½ fl oz) whole milk
  • 60g (2oz) caster sugar
  • 7g yeast sachet
  • 320g (11½ oz) plain flour, plus extra for dusting
  • ½ tsp salt
  • 1 free-range egg, beaten, to glaze
  • 30g (1oz) dark chocolate, melted


Add the cream, milk and sugar to a small saucepan and simmer until the sugar has melted. Remove the pan from the heat and ensure that the milk is warm and not hot, then add the yeast. Leave for a couple of minutes until the liquid has bubbled slightly (this shows the yeast is alive).
Put the flour and salt in a large bowl, then add in the milk mixture and knead for 5-10 minutes until a ball has formed. Leave in a bowl for 1-2 hours to allow the dough to double in size.
Knock the air out of the dough and knead for a couple of minutes until the dough is smooth. Cut into 8 pieces, then roll 6 of them into balls and place on a greaseproof paper-lined baking tray. Cut the 2 remaining pieces into 6 (12 total), then shape them into bunny ears and add to the dough balls. Leave to rise, covered with greased clingfilm, for another half an hour until doubled in size.
Preheat the oven to 190°C/Gas Mark 5.
Brush with the beaten egg, then bake for about 20 minutes until golden and hollow-sounding when tapped on the base. Leave to cool.
Once cool, transfer the melted chocolate to a piping bag and pipe on the eyes and whiskers.
