I made this for Easter this year & it went over GREAT! Everyone loved it, even my extra picky-eater nephew & BIL, & my DH's Gramma who has almost stopped eating (advanced stages of Alzheimer's-everything is either "too sweet or too salty" to her) asked for a second piece! Of course the kids were impressed that the eggs cooked in the oven. The only alterations I made to the recipie were to use 6 colored eggs (a rainbow of color), which I allowed to completely dry, then lightly coated with oil before placing in the braid (which helped minimize color bleed), & about half way through baking I basted it with butter again & sprinkled on poppy seeds. It has a nice, medium texture-not too light, not too dense, & a slightly sweet taste. Had to print a copy of the recipie for my SIL, who has added it to the family cookbook. Thank you for this new Easter family tradition.
