"Mushroom" Bread


Saw these cute "Mushroom" Bread posted on Instagram by le.chiffon18 and after getting some tips from her, I just couldn't wait to try making these impressive little gems. 

What you need is -  a couple of mini muffin pans and your favourite bread dough.  To add a depth of flavour to the otherwise plain white bread, I added some grated Parmesan cheese and garlic powder. After the first prove, divide the dough into portions of 20g each and place them into the greased mini muffin pan.  

Brush the paste over the dough, cover and let them rise ...

.... until doubled in size before putting them into the oven.

Bake for about 25 minutes at 180°C

To prepare the paste, mix the following together:
       2 tbsp rice flour
       2 tbsp dark cocoa powder
       1/8 tsp sugar
       4 tbsp water
