Sweet Easter Bunny Bread Recipe

Happy Easter weekend everyone! Do apologise for the late post this week, I have been out in the garden enjoying the beautiful sunshine this past weekend.  Today, I will be sharing this lovely sweet bread recipe which you can shape to look like a bunny. A great recipe to make with your children and to save for next year’s Easter recipe collection if your children are not too keen on Hot Cross Buns.

This recipe is pretty quick to make and it uses plain flour instead of bread flour. The bread recipe also does not take long to proof.  This dough took just over an hour to proof for the first proofing (as it was a hot day) and I did proof it again in the fridge for another hour before I baked it as I went out for a walk. You can also alternatively, make the dough the night before and leave it to proof. Then, just shape the dough the next morning (if you live in a cold climate country).  I also do apologies as my bunny looks more like a squirrel (LOL) as I made its ears shorter.  Please make the shape of the dough for the head oval and snip longer ears to make it look more like a bunny.

This recipe was given to me by my cousin Tina who lives in Germany, she makes these bunnies every year for Easter so a huge thank you to her for the recipe. Hope you enjoy making these bunnies and let me know what you think of it when you do.

How cute are these, my Dad was a baker as was generations before him, he could literally do anything with bread and used to love making things with the kids when they were little. I have always been a nightmare at making animals with bread

These look so cute. I’ve never made bread with my kids. I’m sure they would like to try sweet bread, they have a very sweet tooth like most kids.
