Bunny, Easter cake

Another Easter pastry idea, the most beautiful to me :-) Although I posted the photos for making this pastry about five years ago, I am only now writing your request for the recipe! The doughs are more or less the same or similar, and I agree, the ideas are the ones that should not be forgotten :-) For our aunt Rosalie

Preparation steps

  • Mix yeast, salt, a spoonful of sugar and lukewarm milk in the salt. Cover and let the yeast rise (about 15 minutes).
  • Put the rest of the sugar, butter, lemon zest, a spoonful of rum, egg and egg yolk in the sifted flour, and knead a compact dough while adding the milk. The dough should be well made, it can be done with a mixer (spiral) or in a bread machine, if you are not good with your hands! Leave the dough to rest for about 1 hour.
  • Knead the aged and overcooked dough and set it aside again to rest in a lukewarm place, always covered, for about 15 minutes.
  • Shake the dough out of the bowl onto a floured surface and divide it into a dozen balls. Make long "apricots" out of eight balls. From the length of the apricots, cut off a part of the length of the earlobe and roll the rest into a circle / twist / like a pie. Divide the two balls you have separated by the number of twists and form smaller balls from them, the head of a bunny.
  • Cut the dough the length of the index finger lengthwise (ears) and place it on the rabbit's head.
  • Transfer the formed rabbit to a baking tray lined with baking paper. Coat it with lightly beaten egg whites. Put the pan in a preheated oven and bake until the pastry is slightly browned, about 20 minutes at 180-200 C.

Chocolate cookies (decoration for the Christmas tree)

The holiday season brings a special atmosphere and mood to the warmth of the home, so instead of old balls and Christmas decorations, bake unique cookies of various shapes together with the children. Drizzle them with melted chocolate, put a decorative ribbon and hang them on a pine tree.
