4 cups of bread flour

Half a cup of sugar

half and ounce of dry yeast

1.5 teaspoons of salt

Half cup of milk

quarter a cup of water

quarter a cup of butter chopped up

2 eggs

2 raisins

2 egg yolks

small amount of red food colouring

Measure out all the ingredients, starting with the ‘wet’ ones first, then mix into a dough.  You can do this by hand, or in your  machine, or a mixing machine.  I use my Thermomix ( which is a family favourite).

Seperate the mix into half .

With the first half make a face shape










(Sorry the picture is upside down I am trying to not cast a shadow from the light)

with the other half of dough, put it into 3/4 and 1/4 balls

rolls out a beard shape lay it on top of the face and using scissors cut some strips for a  beard.








Then we made a hat and bobble, cherry nose and raisans for eyes.

Brush with red food colour, and bake for 175 deg c for 35 mins or til cooked in your oven.
