TURTLE BREAD FOR YOUR CHILDREN

When the rainy days begin and at the weekend you may not want to go out, while the trees are colored in yellow and orange, you can make this bread with your children or grandchildren. I did it with my grandson, some time ago, who loves making cookies and sweets with me.

INGREDIENTS FOR 1 LOAF:

380 gr of gluten-free flour

110 grams of water

80 gr of organic soy milk

20 gr of organic whole cane sugar

25 ml of olive oil

10 gr of salt

12 gr of brewer’s yeast

100 gr of raisins or chocolate chips

1 tablespoon of water

HOW TO PREPARE THE TURTLE BREAD:

In a bowl, combine half the flour with the crumbled yeast and sugar.

Put the oil, then add the milk and water.
Start adding the liquid ingredients to the bowl with the flour and salt and also little by little. Mix everything gently, with your hands. Add the rest of the flour until everything becomes malleable.
Knead the dough for at least ten minutes, until you get a fairly soft, smooth and homogeneous dough.
Form the dough.
Cover the bowl, where you created the dough, with cling film and let it rise for at least 1 hour in the oven off.

Once doubled in volume, divide the dough into 7 parts: 1 piece of 80 g for the head, 4 pieces of 20 grams for the legs and 1 of 10 g for the tail. All the remaining dough you will use for the shell.

The dough is very soft: to give it more strength and make it keep its shape better without losing its softness, before giving shape to each piece, fold it back on itself, making three folds a couple of times. I forgot about it, and that's why my turtle's shell has settled on itself a bit and isn't as rounded as it should have been.

Start from the head, giving the dough a spherical shape.
Form the balls that will be the heads.

Then move on to the legs, forming balls that you will then stretch slightly, so as to give more oval shape.

Form the tail in the same way, giving an oval shape and then create the shell, spherical in shape by placing the chocolate grains inside.
Finally assemble the turtle: position the legs and tail so that they are partially under the shell, and the head immediately attached to the shell.

With 2 raisins resting on the head, create the eyes.

Cover with cling film and let rise again for 1 hour.

When the volume has doubled, brush the turtle with water.
Then, with a sharp-bladed knife, carve a circle all around the shell.

Then also engrave oblique lines to create a diamond grid on the surface of the shell.

Bake the loaf of bread in a preheated convection oven at 200 ° C and bake for about 20 minutes or until golden brown.

Let it cool completely on a rack before serving your turtle bread. You will see that it will be nice to discover the melted chocolate inside the shell. your children will lick their fingers.
