This is a modified Italian Easter bread made with a bread machine. Saves time, kneading, etc. The same ingredients are used but simplified by using a bread machine. This was a recipe handed down by my grandmother.

But she has now has passed and I am unable to raise bread. However, when I used this recipe; WOW! The bread came out perfect!!!! Thank you for sharing.
