This is an adorable recipe to make for Easter. It’s more bread-like than a cookie, so it keeps the sweetness low. Kids will love putting the bunnies together and then taking them apart.
How To Make Honey Bunnies
These cute and delicious honey bunnies are easy to make and are the perfect buns for your Easter dinner.
- 1½ cups flour, unbleached
- 2 pkg active dry yeast
- 1 tsp salt
- ⅔ cup evaporated milk
- ½ cup water
- ½ cup honey
- ½ cup margarine, melted
- 2 pcs eggs
- 3½ cups flour, unbleached
- ½ cup honey
- ¼ cup margarine, melted
- ½ cup raisins
To prepare the batter, combine flour, undissolved yeast, and salt in a mixing bowl; set aside.
In a skillet, heat evaporated milk, water, honey, and margarine until very warm in 120 to 130 degrees F.
Gradually add to dry ingredients; beat 2 minutes at medium speed.
Add eggs and flour. Beat 2 minutes at high speed.
Place in a mixing bowl coated with cooking spray.
Cover tightly with plastic wrap.
Refrigerate for 24 hours.
On a lightly floured surface, divide the dough into 15 pieces.
Roll each into a 20-inch rope.
Divide each rope into: 1 12-inch (body), 1 5-inch (head), and 3 1-inch (ears and tail) strips.
Coil pieces to make body and head; attach ears and tail to head and body.
Place bunnies on a baking sheet coated with cooking spray.
Cover; let rise in a warm, draft-free place until doubled in size, 20 to 25 minutes.
Bake at 375 degrees F for 12 to 15 minutes or until golden brown.
Remove to wire racks.
Meanwhile to prepare glaze, combine remaining honey and margarine in a saucepan until margarine has melted.
Brush bunnies with glaze while warm. Then, decorate with raisins for eyes.
