Easter Breads And Braids

Fruit Braid & Easter Ring 

This is possibly one of my favorite sweet-dough recipes.

There are others but having used this on a number of occasions and always getting a good result I shall include it here.

These recipes come from my ‘Bakery Book’, a slim, mid-seventies volume. (the bibliography of references and sources is still under construction, patience is a virtue!) 

The Fruit Braid is a good all-round tea bread that can be used on a daily basis, while the Easter ring is more of a presentation piece for those special occasions. It can also be used as a celebration ‘cake’ for those with somewhat less than a sweet tooth.


There are numerous other recipes for which this dough can be used, whether just a simple fruit bun or with added dates and walnuts and baked in a tin as a fruit and nut loaf.
