7 Eggs-travagant Easter Breads for Easter Brunch
Whether it’s due to morning church services or egg hunts, Easter meals tend to happen earlier in the day, which means breads — both savory and sweet — are often an integral part of the feast … and these seven breads are perfect for the celebration.
If kids are in the mix at your holiday table, you can’t go wrong with edible bunnies — and we’ve got not one but two of them! One bunny option can be made right in your bread machine (thanks, modern living!) and the other is a cinnamon-spiked dough that transforms into little iced rabbits.
For the grown-up crowd, we suggest serving a slightly sweet loaf with plenty of flavor, like “Aunt Deia’s Easter Bread,” which is bursting with bright, citrusy orange. Or get a little fancier with a loaf of braided walnut bread surrounded by a clutch of hot cross buns — the rich yeast bread is surpremely satisfying. If you’ve got some sweet-tooths in the family, bake up a caramel bubble ring — because it’s made with refrigerated biscuits, it’s a snap to make, but no one will ask while they’re piling their plate high with these sticky, caramelized rolls.
These adorable rabbits will delight kids, and they’re surprisingly easy to make. Just a twist of dough creates the floppy ears. Tell the children they can play with their food!
Walnuts lend texture and flavor to this braided loaf surrounded by cute little hot cross buns. Just a touch of nutmeg adds surprising depth of flavor.
Ooey, gooey caramel sauce, tender biscuits, and crunchy pecans? You’d better make enough, because your guests are going to be coming back for seconds.
Shredded apples melt down into soft, fruity nibbles inside this moist quick bread.
