Ingredients

Bread

5 Land O Lakes® Eggs, uncooked, washed
1 (1-pound) loaf frozen sweet bread dough, thawed
3 tablespoons orange marmalade

Egg Wash

1 tablespoon water

Decorations

Decorator sugar
Non-toxic Easter egg dye

Directions

Divide bread dough in half lengthwise on floured surface. Press each half into 22x3-inch rectangle. Spread each half with 1 1/2 tablespoons marmalade to within 1/2-inch from edge. Fold dough in half lengthwise and pinch edges of rectangle to form rope. Pinch ends to seal.

Shape ropes into loosely twisted ring on greased baking sheet, leaving spaces between twists for eggs. Insert 5 washed eggs into spaces. Cover; let rise in warm place 30-40 minutes or until double in size.

Heat oven to 350°F.

Beat 1 egg and water in bowl; brush over dough. Sprinkle with decorator sugar. Bake 20-25 minutes or until bread is golden brown. Remove from pan; place onto cooling rack.

Carefully loosen eggs with tip of teaspoon. Let cool 15 minutes. Remove eggs carefully using spoon. Clean eggs, if necessary. Tint eggs with egg dye, as desired. Place tinted eggs back into bread.

Recipe Tip

Bread dough can be thawed in resealable plastic food bag overnight in the refrigerator.
