Chef John's Easter Bunny Buns Make for Better Brunching
The big takeaway from this video? The choice of bread dough. If you plan on making these for Easter, I highly recommend using our Italian Easter Bread dough recipe. The Hot Cross Buns dough was fine, but as I ate the bunny bun, I wanted it to be sweeter and richer.
And the Italian Easter bread is just that, a rich egg bread that comes out of the oven buttery, eggy, a little sweet and spicy with that wonderful anisette aroma and flavor. It's also an authentic family heirloom recipe that's been passed down through the generations. So there's that.
Anyway, suit yourself, and as always, enjoy!
