Best Easter Bread Recipe – How to Make Traditional Easter Bread

Erin Phraner

When Easter is celebrated in the Greek way, there are some traditions that are always included on the big day: lamb skewer, the egg cracking game and tsoureki (a.k.a. Greek) Easter bread). The braided wreaths of brioche-like bread are a clear favorite, especially since they look edible Easter baskets. Although this recipe is a proven staple in most Greek (and not Greek) households, it could use a festive refresher: enter funfetti.
