"Let my mouth be filled with thy praise and with thy honor all the day." Ps. 71:8
Kate inspired me last week to bake. For that matter several of the T Gang did! I decided after seeing Kate's lemon bread or cake last week, to make this lemon Easter bread. I haven't made anything with yeast for years, mind you! I used to make this at Easter when the kids were home. It takes about 5 hours total. You mix it up and let it rise for an hour and half, then punch down and let it rise for another 15 minutes, then make two long snake like pieces, braid together and let rise again! I didn't remember to take a photo until after the last rise and when the eggs were in right before baking. Then I took a photo when I took it out of the oven. You do not cook the eggs before dying. They cook right along with the bread. I told my husband if the bread doesn't come out right, at least he will get deviled eggs!
The dying of the eggs: Why should those with kids be the only ones to have fun?
And at dinner: It has a real lemony taste, as one of the ingredients is grated lemon peel. I grated the peel of a whole lemon. Uhmm...
