One of our favorite Easter preparations is to dye the hard-boiled eggs. It has been quite a few years since we've had white eggs to dye, as we weren't able to get them where we lived in Australia. Not to mention the PAAS egg dye tablets! Which bring back memories all the way from when Mamma was a little bitty girl.
Mamma also made this super-delicious super-sized Easter bun. Spiced with cinnamon and nutmeg, and studded with sultana raisins soaked in orange juice, here it is rising in the oven.
When it was baked fragrant and brown, I let it cool, and then iced it with a simple vanilla icing and dusted it with coconut. It was the best thing I ate all weekend.
Unfortunately I didn't get a photo of the finished product, although I meant to. Of course you can see it here at Rhonda's blog, since it's her fabulous recipe!
Mamma ended up staying at home Easter Sunday with a sick Baby. Poor Baby, and poor Mamma too, missing out on the Easter dinner with the family.
