Easter is around the corner and I am busy planning the easter menu. So why not start the day with this yummy easter bread bunny for breakfast? They are super simple and a real eye catcher!
You can make this recipe two ways – the difference isn’t in the dough but what you make of it. The basic recipe is a simple yeast dough. Alternatively you could also use a sweet yeast dough. I like using my simple yeast dough for pizza or gefüllte Foccachia. To sweeten it, I’m using butter and sugar. I don’t really have a recipe for that.
- 450 g Dinkelmehl
- 1 TL Trockenhefe
- 1 Prise Salz
- 4 EL Olivenöl
- 250 ml Wasser lauwarm
- Knete alle Zutaten zu einem glatten Teig zusammen. Lasse ihn nun abgedeckt an einem warmen Ort stehen.
- Nachdem er gegangen ist, knete ihn noch einmal durch.
That’s it. Now you have two options:
- First option: divide the dough into four equally big pieces. Take one piece and devide it in half. Form a croissant-shape with both parts (the middle part should be quite thick and the ends should be thin). Bend them until they have the croaissant-typical shape. Take the first piece and lay it down in front of you, the ends should be facing to you. Place the second piece on top, the ends should be facing away from you. Take a look at the pictures and you will know what I mean. Coat your bread bunny with milk or water. This will better the colour after baking you can know give your bunny two eyes, by placing raisin. This recipe makes four easter bread bunnies.
- Option 2: Make a big easter bunny. Take the dough and divide it into different sized pieces for the head, body, four paws and two bunny ears. Put the pieces together on the bakingtray. Again use milk or water to coat your bread bunny for a nice crisp colour after baking and place two raisins as the bunny’s eyes.
That’s it! You’re done. Put your easter bread bunny in the oven for about 20 minutes at 180 degrees. Now you’re all set up for easter brunch.
I’d like to know what you’re having for breakfast on easter? I like to use Pinterest for ideas, but maybe you already fouldthe best one and care to share?
