Easy Coffee Bread Ring for Easter




 

Easy (that's how I like my recipes and crafts, too, for that matter) and yummy (of course)

 Coffee bread ring! YAY!

Doesn't this look nice? 

I made a little bunny made from a washcloth to put in the kids' bags for Easter.

(If you want to make one, google search "how to make a bunny from a washcloth" which brings up lots and lots of tutorials.)

Apples and cinnamon coffee bread for Easter


Coffee Bread Ring using frozen bread dough. That's the quick part but everyone will think you took a very LONG time making this. NOT!



Coffee Bread Ring Recipe


Frozen bread dough
3 medium sized apples, peeled and sliced in smallish pieces
1/4 cup raisins or a little more if you really like raisins
1 teaspoon cinnamon
1/3 cup brown sugar
1/4 cup butter or margarine
1 cup Confectioner's sugar
1 - 2 teaspoons water

For Easter straw nest:

Edible Easter straw (I bought mine at Walmart, but Joann's has it also).
Jelly beans

Directions:

Unthaw bread dough according to directions on the package.

Roll bread dough (it's easier if the dough is room temperature) to about 10 inches by 18  inches.

Place butter, apples, cinnamon, brown sugar, and raisins in a pan and simmer for 10 minutes.

Let cool until lukewarm and then pour over the dough along one long end.

Roll the dough evenly on its long end so that you now have a long, skinny roll of bread dough filled with the raisin mixture. Pinch seams together so that the raisin mixture doesn't leak out. Form a ring and seal the end.  Place on a pizza stone and use scissors or knife to make slices around the outside edge of the ring about 1 and 1/2 inches apart. Cut only about 1/2 way through the ring.

Let it rise in a warm place until it is about double the size.... maybe about an hour or two.

 Brush dough with egg mixture and bake at 325 degrees for about 25 minutes or until done.

When it's done and cool, mix confectioner's sugar with a small amount of water.. add more water as needed so you can drizzle it. Drizzle over the coffee bread ring.

I made a nest out of the edible Easter straw and filled it with jelly beans. It looks so Eastery!

Apples, raisins, and cinnamon bread ring for Easter


I baked this at midnight so I intended to take pictures the next day. From my comfortable place on the couch, I heard my son call out from the kitchen, "What did you bake?" I quickly answered back, "DON'T EAT IT".  I heard a chuckle (husband and son are getting used to not being able to eat what I make until after the pictures are taken for the blog). But REALLY, I had to get good pictures and that happens in the daylight!  :) Don't worry. They finally got to eat it the next day and yes, I warmed it up first.

Enjoy!!
