How to Make Easter Bunny Bread

If you look at Pinterest regularly, you’ve probably seen various renditions of Easter Bunny dinner rolls. Depending on how well your bread recipe rises, the rolls could come out great or lose their shape when they rise and bake, making them featureless. This version takes some of the guess work out of it. You don’t have to worry about losing the bunny’s features to well-risen yeast.

  • 1 package frozen bread dough, thawed
  • Egg white
  • Flour


Divide the thawed dough. You’ll need one large piece of dough and one small piece of dough for each roll. You can make the rolls as big or as small as you want. The smaller they are, the more rolls you’ll get out of each package of frozen bread dough.

On a lightly floured surface, roll a larger piece of dough into a strip. Fold the dough in half and twist the ends together. The ends become the bunny’s ears. Roll a small piece of dough in your hands to form a ball. Place the ball in the center of the bottom of the twisted roll. This is the bunny’s tail.

Let rise according to package directions.

Beat the egg white in a dish. Use a pastry brush to brush the egg white onto the rolls.

Bake at 350 degrees for about 30 minutes or until the rolls are golden brown. Depending on size, you may have to adjust the time.
