Easter Bird's Nest Bread Recipe Reviews - Allrecipes.com (Pg. 1)
Reviewed: Mar. 20, 2013
Has a lot of steps but still easy to make and turns out wonderful. Made this for youngsters at church for an activity we are having and I know they will love it. I substituted orange juice and orange peel and it is very tasty. I also kept leftovers wrapped in foil and refrigerated after baking. This morning I sliced a piece off and toasted and it was just as yummy as last night. Never tried baking eggs before but they turned out perfect also. Definitely going to try this again and in fact have another two braids rising as I am writing this.

I had no problems with making this bread. It was very easy to cut in half to only make one nest. Turned out wonderful, and will definately become a family tradition from now on! Thanks for the recipe!

I've been making this Easter bread for at least 20 years ~ my kids are grown but still ask for it! I make the braids the night before & refrigerate, then warm to room temp before baking. It is so good. Just a hint of lemon makes it a little different from traditional sweet rolls.

I followed the recipe as written. I did find that the dough was VERY soft and had to add extra flour to be able to knead it. I kneaded the dough on parchment paper so I would not have to continue to add a lot of extra flour. To color the uncooked eggs I covered them with food coloring and let them sit for a few minutes to let the color set in. Then I rinsed the extra color off. (Make sure you wear gloves to protect your hands from the color.) This had a nice sweet lemon taste, and looks so pretty.
