2. Have a scale on hand, as it is necessary to weigh the portions of bread.

This recipe yields 9 buns in a 20 x 20 cm pan.


  • 300g of wheat flour;
  • 5g of salt;
  • 30g of sugar;
  • 6g grams of dry yeast or 15g (1 tablet) of fresh yeast;
  • 20g butter at room temperature;
  • 180ml of warm milk;
  • 20g of condensed milk;

Separating, coloring and baking the dough

Once the dough is rested for the first time, we can color it.

1. Weigh the dough made.
2. Divide the weight of the dough into 9 parts. (ex.: the dough was 900g divided by 9 = 100g)
3. Add dye of the chosen color.
4.Remove 2 balls from each dough (this will be the ear of the bears).
5.Form balls with the dough.
6.Place the balls with spaces of at least 2 fingers apart.
7.Glue the ears using a little water.
8.Cover with plastic and let it rest for another 20 minutes.
9.Preheat the oven to 180°C for 15 minutes, or until they are lightly golden.
After roasting, wait to cool and decorate as you prefer.
