This delicious Easter Bread Wreath Recipe is a traditional old fashioned Easter bread recipe. Make one for your family this year.

This is a decorative sweet, yeast bread that has whole eggs baked into it. You may have also heard it referred to as Easter Bird’s Nest Bread. Either way, they are the same delicious dessert.

Some versions of this bread call for added anise. If you enjoy the taste of licorice, you can certainly add that to the dough. Or, if you don’t or your guests don’t, you can leave it out. That’s one of those ingredients that people either love or hate.

Tip: If you have leftovers, you can wrap the bread with plastic wrap and store it at room temperature for three days. You will need to remove the eggs and refrigerate them. They should not be left at room temperature.
