Greek Easter Bread
I made my first loaf of bread, from scratch, for Easter. This is definitely one of those foods that I have always been intimated to try for some reason. I chose the perfect recipe to face my fears. Greek Easter Bread just looked delicious and beautiful and it was given 5 stars in it's reviews. I now know why no really makes bread anymore, or at least very often. It is time consuming! From start to finish it took me 4 hours. It wasn't difficult at all, I just had to make sure I was around the house for all the steps of rising, kneading, rising, braiding, rising and baking. The result? Perfection. Soft on the inside, crusty on the outside. I don't think it could have turned out any better. It was a hit Easter Sunday and there is still enough left over for breakfast. If you have wanted to try to make your own bread, but are like me. Start with this recipe. You'll do great!
