Personal notes/温馨小贴士:

IMG_2028– as this is my first time trying this, i had a leftover of 85g dough. you can choose to increase the weight of the body and claws accordingly
因这是第一次做龙虾面包,摸索当儿、误算,还有 85克剩余面团。如果您想做这个造型,可将身体和钳子部位适当增加面团

– i’d make the body a bit longer in the future as i ended up with a big fat lobster
下次做会将身体加长~ 这次烤出来的龙虾胖胖滴。。该减肥喔

– do tent lobster with foil to prevent over browning
上色满意后记得盖上锡纸以避免烤焦哈

– i brushed the lobster with 3 coats of egg wash
龙虾我刷上了三次蛋液 IMG_2025

  • tracy (September 22, 2016)

    hi..interested to try this out..May I know it will stick tidely the dough when I join the legs head all that? will it drop off when I bake?

  • Victoria (September 22, 2016)

    Hi, mine didn’t. In fact I didn’t eat the bread. We left it as a display and would have considered hanging it up in the kitchen. If your dough is way toooo dry (meaning you can see hairline cracks), you will have a problem of it sticking together . U may want to take extra care on the little parts of the tail and spray s bit of water for it to stay if necessary. Have fun

    • tracy (September 22, 2016)

      left it as display? it wont expired date? like we over the date for the bread be black

      • Victoria (September 22, 2016)

        Of course we don’t eat it since we left it as a display. In general I keep homemade bread for no more than three days . But as a display, this one lasted . I rem having it on my dining table for at least three weeks and there was no sign of mold (the external. I did not tear the lobster apart to check inside). Do note that bread freshness Also depends on how u store your bread and the climate you are in

      • tracy (September 23, 2016)

        may I know how to keep freshness of the bread as you said?

        • Victoria (September 23, 2016)

          Do note that this is a lean dough so I will probably try to consume with soup during dinner and not keep the bread more than two days. If you are talking abt keeping bread fresh in general, everyone has different methods to share depending on climate . You may like to google for some ideas. For me being in a dry climate, I double cling wrap, Ziplock and keep in a sealed bread bag. I do not trust bread tins for my climate. It never worked

          • tracy (September 23, 2016)

            ok.noted..thanks for the advise.last I want to know may I replace the condensed milk with others like full cream milk or ….?

          • Victoria (September 24, 2016)

            Please do not substitute
