German Easter bread

German Easter bread

Last year we met Easter in Bavaria. Bought at the bakery, a traditional Easter bread - like. Then decided to do a home - recipe found on the German website - the recipe is listed in a treasured notebook, a beautiful muffin!!! End, it's not a cake - this dessert bread, flew at Breakfast, but the bread from the bakery lasted for 2 days! I want to share with You - soon after Easter, and this bread, I'm sure, will take its rightful place next to the cakes. The recipe with the same name is on the website, but the recipe and the number of ingredientov different. Try?
