Bunny Bread

Shape and bake frozen bread dough into a tasty Easter treat for the kids:)

1 1-pound loaf frozen bread dough from one 3-pound package, thawed
1 large egg, lightly beaten
Assorted food coloring markers(I used the FOODoodler brand)

Heat oven to 375 degrees. Grease(or use stoneware) large cookie sheet. Cut thawed bread dough into 6 equal pieces. Shape 2 pieces into large, flat ovals for bunny bodies; shape 2 pieces into round balls for bunny heads. Cut 2 remaining pieces into 6 pieces each, for a total of 12; shape 4 pieces into ovals for feet, 4 balls into front paws, and remaining 4 into 2-inch-long ear shapes.
Place bodies on prepared cookie sheet spacing well apart; attach heads, feet, paws and ears. brush bunnies with beaten egg; bake twenty minutes until golden. Using wide spatula, carefully remove from cookie sheet; cool completely on wire rack.
Use food coloring pens to decorate bunnies.

My 4 year old granddaughter, Karaline, thought it was funny that I put "kitty faces on the bunnies." "Silly grandma" she said. :) She makes me laugh!

The bunnies are multiplying as bunnies do:)
The bunny breads are very yummy besides being cute!
Here they are all packaged up and ready to give away as Easter treats!

Have fun! The bunny breads are very easy to make! HAPPY EASTER!

  2. OMGosh Sue!!! I was just browsing through your lovely blog and came across this adorable "Bunny Bread"!!! I can't wait for Easter so I can make them for my kiddos (and as gifts too!!!).

  3. This is such an adorable idea, I just shared a link to your site on our Little Hands that Cook with Books Lesson about making Bunny Bread along with Books, Crafts and Songs. They turned out so delicious when we made them. THANKS!
