Children love this bread and it's delicious just even with a little butter.
For a hedgehog roll into a ball, gently start pulling one side. Release and give another pull continue until it eventually looks like a nose. I took scissors and made shallow cuts for the spikes.
Taking a knife lifting the spikes a little, then popped raisins for eyes & nose , let it rise again and in the oven.
Cooking times vairy when ready it will be golden, just tap the bottom to check. If it sounds hollow it's ready. About 25 mintues also depending on how many hedgehogs one makes with the mixture.
Mixture makes one big loaf or hedgehogs
1 package of active dry yeast
1 1/4 cup of warm milk (110 to 115 degrees)
1/4 cup of honey
1/8 cup of melted butter
1 teaspoon of salt
4 cups of all purpose flour
Preheat oven to 180 degrees. Dissolve one package of yeast into a bowl of the warmed milk. Next add the honey, melted butter, and salt. Mix to combine.
Add 3 cups of flour and mix with hands until a soft dough forms. We saved the last cup of flour for dusting and kneading.
Place the dough on a floured surface and begin kneading for about 10 minutes.
When you are done kneading, place the dough in a greased bowl and cover it. Place the bowl in a warm place so it can rise and double. This will take about an hour.
Next, punch down the dough, shape and place it in a greased loaf pan that is dusted with flour. Cover the dough with a cloth and place in a warm place for another 30 minutes until it rises and doubles.
Bake for 30-35 minutes at 180c degrees. Allow to cool slightly, remove from pan and place on a wire rack to completely cool down before slicing.
For a bit of a gloss brush with milk then bake, if making a hedgehog brush after about 10 Min of baking otherwise it ruins the spikes. I also like to add just a little more honey to my mixture completely up to ones taste.
