Use uncooked eggs when you're making this this decorative plain bread as they will bake at the same time that the bread does. The eggs can also be dyed beforehand for extra colour. Use it as an edible centrepiece. Watch this recipe being made in the Allrecipes Easter bread video.

I've alread reviewed this recipe, but I wanted to add something about preventing the color from bleeding. I dyed my eggs for hours to get a rich, dark color. Once they were done I rinsed them in water and dried them very well. When I inserted them into the ring I tried to put them in as deep as possible. Hopefully this helps! Original Review: Beautiful bread! I had to add a little more flour when kneading and shortened the baking time! Perfect!! I made one yesterday for Easter, but my family ate it up so I had to bake another today and it came out even better. Put on sprinkles for added color. - 15 Apr 2006 (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
I love how simple the ingrediants are for this recipe. I've made it several times, the first time I followed the directions exactly, it took all afternoon with all the rising, but it came out great. Since then, i have just thrown everything in my bread machine and placing it on the dough setting, then when finished, i roll out the dough and braid it, let it rise and bake. It's a lot easier for me and still tastes great! - 08 Jun 2006 (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
