Anpanman Rolls#SundayFunday

Anpanman is a character bread ” that was inspired by the cartoon character. Kids love such cartoon characters, but let me tell you that I too enjoyed creating this character, it was a fun project.
I thank Sue of Palatable Pastimes for choosing such a fun theme for our Sunday Funday event, wherein, she asked us " Let's create some cute and whimsical kawaii recipes, "Kawaii" means "cute" in Japanese."
Kawaii recipes are perfect for kids.
130 Grams All Purpose Flour
10 Grams Sugar
2 Grams Instant Yeast
20 Grams Softened Butter
2 Grams Salt
80 to 90 Ml Warm Mil
Pink Food coloring
1 Tablespoon Beaten Egg
Black Color or Choco pen
In a large bowl mix in the flour and salt in a bowl. In a jar mix in the milk, sugar and yeast , keep it aside for 5 minutes. Then add in the yeast mixture to the flour and knead to form a smooth dough. Take the dough on to a work surface add the softened butter and knead again for 5 minutes till it smooth and soft dough. Place this in a oiled bowl, cover and let it rise till double in volume.
Deflate the dough and divide the dough into 4 equal parts. Keep the three parts aside covered. 
For the remaining one, add the food coloring and knead it well. Divide this into 9 equal parts. Roll them into smooth round ball. Cover with a wet cloth and let rest for 15 minutes.
Take the three dough balls and roll each into a round smooth ball and place them in long oiled aluminum tray/mold.
With your finger make an indent the part that hits the nose and cheeks, and put the nose and cheeks on it. Cover and keep it rise for 15 minutes.
Apply the egg wash to Anpanman Rolls. Bake in a preheat oven at 180°C for 18 to 20 minutes. 
Cool on a wire rack completely.
After baking and cooling, draw facial parts with black food color. 
Complete and I am loving it!
