Ingredients

  • 3/4 cup almond milk - or any other plant-based milk – see note 2
  • 1 1/2 teaspoon instant dry yeast
  • 2 1/4 cups strong white bread flour - or all-purpose flour see notes 1 & 3
  • 1/4 cup extra-virgin olive oil - or walnut/hazelnut oil – see note 4
  • 1/4 cup brown granulated sugar - or coconut sugar
  • 1/4 teaspoon vanilla powder - or 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • zest of 1/2 orange - optional see note 5
  • 4 tablespoons almond milk - for brushing

Decoration

Instructions

  • Mix the active dry yeast in slightly warm milk and stir well. Let it rest for a few minutes.
  • If kneading by hand: In the meantime, add the flour, sugar, salt, vanilla, orange zest, and olive oil to a bowl and mix with a spoon. Add the milk, mix with a spoon, then start kneading the dough by hand for at least 10 minutes until it is nice and smooth. The dough should be pretty sticky to begin with. If it feels a bit too dry, add a touch more milk. Avoid adding more flour, and if you need help handling the sticky dough, use some extra olive oil on your hands.
    If using a mixer: Add all the ingredients to a stand mixer bowl with the dough hook. Knead for at least 10 minutes or until the dough is smooth, soft, and elastic.
  • Shape the dough into a smooth ball, place it back into a clean bowl greased with a bit of oil, and cover it with a slightly damp tea towel or a lid (this will prevent the dough from drying out). Place the dough in a warm place (I usually place it in the microwave or the oven with the light bulb turned on) and wait for it to double in size. It should take at least 1 hour to 1 hour and a half.
  • Take the dough out of the bowl and divide it into 8 equal-sized pieces. You will use 6 pieces to make the bunny head and 2 pieces to make the ears. Shape 6 pieces into smooth balls and place them on a baking tray covered with parchment paper. Make sure to space the balls well, as they will grow in size.
  • Divide the last 2 balls into 3 smaller balls each, cut them in half to form the ears, and place them on each dough ball.
  • Cover again with the tea towel and leave it in a warm place to rest for 30-40 minutes. The dough should increase by 50%.
  • In the meantime, preheat the oven to 340 F (170 C).
  • Brush the bunnies with almond milk. Bake in the oven for 12-14 minutes or until the top is golden. If the bunnies are browning too quickly, you can cover them with aluminum foil.
  • While the bunnies are baking, make the sugar syrup. Add the sugar and water to a pot on medium-high heat and bring to a boil. Reduce the heat and let it simmer for a few minutes until you reach a syrup consistency.
  • Remove from the oven (note 6). While the brioche bunnies are still warm, brush the top with the sugar syrup. Decorate the ears with pearl sugar. Melt the chocolate. Once they've cooled down a bit, decorate the bunnies with eyes and nose with the help of a toothpick.
  • Serve the bunnies warm or at room temperature. Store the brioche bunnies in an airtight container at room temperature for up to 3 days or in the freezer for up to 1 month. To serve the brioche bunnies, reheat for a few minutes in the oven.

Notes

Note 1: Please try to use a scale and metric measurements. I included cups measurements, but the dough is quite sensitive, and it needs precise quantities of liquid and flour.
Note 2: Remember that each type of flour absorbs liquids slightly differently. All-purpose flour generally has less protein content, so you might need less liquid.
Note 3: This dough should be pretty sticky to begin with, but the more you work it, the more elastic it will become.
Note 4: This brioche is delicious made with extra-virgin olive oil, but I sometimes use a nutty oil to give it more depth of flavor.
Note 5: You can omit the orange zest, but you won’t believe the difference it makes. It will make your home smell incredible for days! And the brioche will taste divine!
Note 6: Do not try to remove the bunnies from the baking tray straight away. They are very soft. Let them cool for at least 10 minutes before moving them on a cooling rack.
How to Store:  Store the brioche bunnies in an airtight container at room temperature for up to 3 days or in the freezer for up to 1 month. When you’re ready to serve, thaw, and then reheat in the oven for a few minutes.
