Easter Bread

For Easter dinner, I decided to put Artisan Bread in Five Minutes a Day to the Easter Test. I made a batch of challah dough, the butter variety. The eggs were dyed quickly before inserting into little nooks within the braid. I had heard that you could use both raw and hard boiled eggs in this type of bread. After being baked for 25 minutes, the eggs were soft cooked and edible, but I think next time I'd hard boil them ahead of time.

The outcome? A hit! Soft, fluffy, brightly colored bread... a real hit with kids and adults alike.

It made me think of you, Julie... with your dual religions at home. Easter, such a Catholic holiday paired with Challah, a wonderful Jewish bread.
