Excellent recipe! Made it last Sunday for Easter brunch and it was hit! It’s also very pretty!
I made this bread for Easter yesterday. It is absolutely gorgeous. I have rave reviews, everyone loved it. I highly recommend this recipe. We did have some leftover, I cannot wait to make french toast casserole with the leftovers.
If I could give this bread 10 stars, I would! I made half a recipe of the dough in my bread machine & formed it into a braid just to try it before making it for Easter. Wow! THE most delicious bread I've ever had! I know my family is going to love it. Will be making it frequently during the year. This is too good to enjoy only at Easter!
I made this last year and it was very good, but I prefer my family recipe, which my mother made, and now me, for the past fifty years - it is more moist, plus we always colored and used raw eggs to bake encircled by the sweet yeast dough. There are many versions, very similar, and all are special Easter treats!
can I make the Easter Egg Bread Gluten free by using the Gluten Free flour 1 - 1 ?
I had to search my memory going way back to remember what exactly was that delicious and beautiful bread my Nana used to make. She called it La Luna (the moon). As a young girl I remember watching her tucking my colored Easter eggs into a sweet dough. When she passed away, alas there were no written recipes. My search began & I have learned much about this special, symbolic bread which is made by many cultures. I have made this Easter bread for a few years now, it is a connection to my past and a tradition in my family that would have been lost. I was so thrilled to find a good recipe right here on TOH. With vanilla or cardamom, it's delicious. Its not Easter without it!
I made this beautiful bread and it was a hit at our Easter dinner. Sweet and delicious!
We've been making this for the past five years...mine is going into the oven right now! My college-aged daughters still look forward to having this beautiful and tasty bread at Easter.
Not only does this taste good, the presentation is so pretty. I find that it tastes best the same day it is made.
This SOUNDS wonderful and I am going to try it this weekend. My question is: are the eggs good to eat after being first hard boiled, then baked in the oven? Maybe they are just for the decoration??
