  1. I remember having the Easter Bread at my Grandmother’s home. I really like the Hidden Carrot Cupcakes. I am going to make these with the girls.

  2. That bread looks like a great addition to our Easter menu. The kids get tons of candy, but this sweet treat is just what I want for myself.

  3. Whenever I make bread, I’ve always had to have warm milk or water. It’s always helped the bread rise and it doesn’t take forever. I’ll have to give your recipe a try for our Easter festivities!

    • I didn’t warm the milk before hand, but some people do. It rises best in warm conditions, which is why I had a note about sitting in a warm spot. Hope that helps!

  4. If you keep the reciprocated I probably could try it this weekend. Saw a whole by chance of others delicious.
