Main dough

 Method

1. Mix all ingredients in sponge dough, into a rough dough. Leave to stand for 1 hour at room temperature or overnight in fridge.

2. After resting sponge dough, add all main dough ingredients to sponge dough except butter. Knead till a rough dough forms. Add butter, then knead till window pane. Proof covered for 20 min.

5. After 10 min, roll out round dough to about 10 cm. Pat away bubbles at the edges. Swiss roll up and pinch the seams close.  Leave to rest of another 10 min.

10. Proof for 1 hour. While the whole lot is proofing, add the eyes and nostril.

11. Preheat oven to 160 deg C. Adjust the eyes just before going into oven because proofing will send them in various directions.

12. Place at the lowest rack. Lower temperature to 140 deg C. Be careful not to brown the top (or the croc will not be green!) or burn the bottom. While baking, Crocs will look bloated and all folds will merge to a smooth surface. They will reappear after cooling. Bake for 20 min. Then cool on wire rack.
