Easter Bunny Easter Bread
This is a fun technique to create a basket of Easter bunny bread rolls, perfect for Easter brunch or a kids' party. They're so adorable, people will barely be able to stand it! You can use this dough recipe (which is my Hot Cross Bun recipe, without the rum and dried fruit), or my Easter Bread recipe, or any sweet or unsweetened bread dough you like.
In the video I used 1/2 of my Hot Cross Bun dough recipe (without the rum and fruit) to make 4 bunnies. This written recipe is for the full dough recipe (or 32 ounces dough) which yields 8 bunnies.
You can also use my Italian Easter bread dough or your favorite sweet or plain bread dough recipe.
You can use currants for the eyes, and flaked, shredded, finely chopped coconut, or even pearl sugar for the tail.
To make simple syrup, bring 2 parts sugar and 1 part water to a boil and allow to cool. Instead of a simple syrup, you can brush the bunnies with melted apricot jam.
