Paddington Bear Movie Bread

Our budding chefs had a total blast celebrating the release of the Paddington 2 movie!

It was an honor to partner with our friends at Warner Brothers to design a scrumptious Teddy Bear Bread recipe for the launch of Paddington 2. From his cute nose to mini chocolate chip eyes, we had a blast whipping up this special recipe with a few of our favorite budding chefs.

Want to celebrate with us at home?

Check out the recipe for our oh-so-yummy Teddy Bear Bread below including a special twist that Paddington himself would love with a little orange marmalade surprise inside! Paddington 2 hits theaters January 12th and features Paddington happily settled with the Brown family in Windsor Gardens, where he has become a popular member of the community, spreading joy and marmalade wherever he goes!

Paddington Bear Bread Recipe
Makes: 12-18 Bears

Ingredients

  • Bread Dough
  • 2 1/2 C all-purpose flour
  • 1 T light brown sugar
  • 1 t salt
  • 2 T cocoa powder
  • 1/4 C warm water
  • 1 1/2 t yeast
  • 1/4 t sugar
  • 3/4 C warm milk
  • 4 T unsalted butter, room temperature
  • drizzle olive oil
  • Filling
  • 1/2 C chocolate chips
  • 1/2 C marmalade

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

  • In a large mixing bowl, combine flour, brown sugar and salt. Set aside. Separate out ½ cup of dry mixture in a small bowl to the side before adding in cocoa powder to the large bowl.

  • Pour warm water into a large bowl and sprinkle in the yeast and sugar. Stir and set aside for 5 minutes until bubbles begin to appear, then add warm milk and butter.

  • Pour 3 tablespoons of wet mixture (for the Makes 12 portion) into the ½ cup of reserved flour mixture (white dough) and the rest into the cocoa powder mixture (chocolate dough). Stir each bowl separately. Turn the 2 doughs out onto a surface dusted with flour and knead separately until smooth. Lightly oil a mixing bowl and turn the doughs in 2 separate bowls to coat. Cover and let rise in a warm spot for 1 hour.

  • Dust a workspace and divide chocolate risen dough into 12-18 individual pieces. Break off two smaller pieces from each chocolate dough (for the bear ears) and divide white dough into 12-18 smaller pieces (for bear noses). Roll largest chocolate piece of dough into a flat disk, fill with ½ tablespoon of chocolate chips or marmalade or both and pinch together to seal. Shape into a round and pinch on chocolate ears and white nose. Finish bear with 2 chocolate chips for eyes and 1 for tip of nose.

  • Bake for Bake for 10-15 minutes or until golden brown. Cool on wire racks. Enjoy!
