I can't decide if it looks more like a basket of eggs, or a bunny with horrible boils. Either way, it looks better in person and the lemon zest and anise seeds smelled wonderful as it baked.
The "trick" to the bread is dyeing the uncooked eggs, and then tucking them into the bread to bake along with the bread. You can avoid the dye running by baking white eggs to hold the place and then replacing them when cool with cocloured eggs. I think that's madness (and wasteful). A little food colouring bleed isn't the end of the world.
Hot Cross Buns
Easter Egg Bread
Decorated Easter Cookies
And probably something else I'm forgetting. Whew, I'm ready for a break.
Did anyone bake anything interesting this Easter? I'd love to hear about it.
