One of My Favorite Recipes – Easter Bread

Written by Tiffany H

So… Bread.

Mmmmmm…

I have to admit, I am a bread fan. Not so much store-bought, but anything bread-ish I can get my hands on that I or someone in our family has made, most usually makes my day. Just the smell of it baking can put a smile on my face. πŸ˜‰

This bread, however, is so special it’s a once a year kind of thing. It’s sweeter than normal bread and denser, but still moist and, well, wonderful. I tell the story about it in a post from years ago, so right now I’ll just share the updated recipe, and pictures. Because a picture is worth a thousand words, and at least one taste, right? (I made that last part up all by myself πŸ˜‰ ).

Recipe Notes

Baby Boy ate five slices, and then bawled when he couldn't have more. Either I have a carb-aholic on my hands or this was a really good recipe. Or both. πŸ˜‰
