Easter Bread

Okay, confession: I'm not a good cook or baker. I'd rather eat chicken nuggets and work on a project around the house. On the other hand, I like the idea of being able to bake and cook. And I like the accessories.

Last Sunday (Easter), I broke out my Kitchen Aid mixer for the first time and crossed my fingers that I wouldn't screw up the recipe that my mom used each year for making an Easter sweet bread.

(hello, mixer. ignore ugly kitchen)

I started to worry a bit when the recipe starts out saying, "About 5 hours before serving or very early in the day...". I continued on and did not cheat like some other people and try to pass off a crumb cake purchased at a store as her own.

Success! The bread tasted yummy and no one died from eating it. My favorite part of the recipe is that you insert the eggs raw into the bread and they become hard-boiled when you bake it.


  1. That looks fabulous. She should get your mixer out more often.

  2. I think I need to make some chocolate chip cookies next with the mixer. It's so sad that the mixer lives in it's box rather than on the counter.

  3. Hey! Corpsearm does not cook, nor does it bake. Though if I had a Kitchen Aid mixer, Corpsearm wouldn't have to....
