Funfetti Easter Bread—The Most Epic 4 Ingredient Recipe Ever!

/ Wednesday, April 16, 2014

Some years my family gets to celebrate two Easters—one "regular" and one Greek—and some lucky years they fall on the same day. This is a fabulous combo year, so I set out to create an extra-tasty twist on our classic tsoureki (brioche-like bread studded with red eggs) for the occasion. I present to you: Funfetti Easter Bread—EEEKS! I know, me too!!!

Listen, I'm a carb-lover no matter what but this 4-ingredient recipe is special. The credit goes entirely to Confetti Cake Mix, which I dust on store-bought pizza dough two different times for mega fun flavor. I mean, who wouldn't love birthday cake–flavored bread!?

I'm sharing this recipe with my Good Housekeeping framily today—fingers crossed they like it. Easter bread is a fairly common tradition; there's the Greek version (duh), Italian version, Dutch version, Polish version...which means that Funfetti Easter Bread is likely engrained somewhere in your DNA and you should totally give it a try!

PS. Check out the How-To Video for this recipe on my YouTube channel or snag a bunch more info on the Good Housekeeping blog.
