On the eve of Halloween, self-proclaimed food blogger that I am, I finally managed to squeeze in a themed sandwich loaf midway through working overtime to catch up on deadline, so kudos to myself!
There are a lot of traditional Halloween recipes, such as cupcakes, butter cookies, and candy canes; all of these desserts are a bit high in calories, but I finally chose to make a reduced sugar and oil face squeeze bun to celebrate the holiday.
This recipe is based on a regular bread recipe, with an applesauce filling, and some simple shapes. You can also bookmark this bread recipe for free play.
Dough Ingredients： Gluten flour 320g/ Milk 200g/ Sugar 20g/ Salt 2g/ Milk powder 15g/ Yeast 3g/ Butter 30g
Other ingredients: coloring (yellow and black, or feel free to do so) applesauce to taste (see my previous share for the applesauce recipe)
Halloween ghost face squeeze bag recipe
1. The key to making basic bread is to knead the film, so that the texture is soft and chewy. To make a film, put the dough ingredients except the salt and oil into the bread machine and knead for 20 minutes, then add salt. Knead with oil for 20 minutes. It doesn’t matter if the dough is buttered or liquid, just don’t heat it too much to avoid burning the dough. The dough will release the film more easily when wet.
After the dough has been kneaded with salt and oil, let the dough rest and ferment until doubled in size; then release the air and divide into three equal portions. A portion should be about 190g – 200g, depending on whether or not more flour was added during the draining process, depending on the moisture content of the bread. 3.
Keep one portion of the white dough for later use; add yellow colouring to one portion and black colouring to the other. No black colouring, attempting to mix my own. Got one dark green dough as shown in the picture (TT)
4. divide each portion of dough into 30g portions, you will have one 10-20g portion of dough for each colour to save for the ghost face Eyes or other shapes.
5. wrap each 30g ball of dough in applesauce, seal side down.
Place any gaps in the mold. When the dough has doubled in size, it will fill in the gaps. 7.
7. then you can make your own shapes! Aside from gluing on the eyes and making a ghost face.
There’s also pinching out pumpkin stalks for pumpkin shapes; pinching white dough into a kid puffy shape; wrapping small, thin pieces of dough around dark green dough to make Zombie shape; the last bit of leftover dough was used to make the witch hat. A little water can be used to make it easier to glue the eyes together.
7) Bake at 350F for 10 minutes, cover and bake for another 10 minutes. Cover and bake for another 10 minutes. Remove from the oven and let cool for a second time with coloring.
And then we’ll show you the filling – if you’re excited, you can make it now!
