http://www.sundaywithachanceofmeatballs.com is making Easter Bread!
One of my best childhood memories is when my grandmother and mother made easter bread. My mother told me that my grandmother used to make it with a colored egg in the nest of the braid so that the loaf looked like a baby swaddled In a blanket, I only recall a loaf without the eggs but I tried it for this post! If you google “easter bread” you will find some images with the colored eggs and could certainly adapt this recipe to a more traditional presentation!
Granny’s Easter Bread Ingredients:
12 beaten eggs
1 cup oil
1 1/2 cups sugar dissolved in 2 cups water
1 tablespoon salt
3 packages dry yeast plus tablespoon sugar dissolved in 2 cups warm water
5 tablespoon anise flavoring (vanilla flavoring can be substituted!)
5 lbs of flour (my grandmother went big!)
This makes 10-12 loaves. Just like the white bread recipe…
