This is a recipe for the person who already bakes bread. I would not recommend it to someone who has never made bread. Bread baking is done by touch and feel of the dough at least in this Italian Family so you need to know the texture of a bread dough so it isn't too sticky but then not to add too much flour to make it dry. This has been a family tradition of ours for years. We make 20-25 loaves the day before Easter to share with family and friends. I will post a picture next week of our babies. This is not the Easter egg bread with the frosting and sprinkles. When baking bread make sure your kitchen is warm, I like to keep my kitchen temp around 70 degrees. I let my bread and dough rise on top of my dryer while running it. Another good place is in a sunny spot. Do not raise your bread on top of oven or in a low heated oven it can start to cook.
