This Cornish Saffron Easter Bread from +Jenni Field actually went to church! Read the story on her blog. It is such a wonderful read! 
 
Looking for some beautiful Easter breads to try for next year (or just to make whenever?) The #breadbakers  are at it again, and this month's theme was Easter/Passover/Springtime breads. I made Cornish Saffron Easter Bread using the Tangzhong method. It doubled as bread for my friend's church's Easter Communion service too, so it's very special! 

I know you'll find more than one bread you're interested in trying. Come see what we all made!

I finally made motzos! 
These motzo crackers are very hard to put down once you begin snacking on them. They are so crunchy and thin, that "just one more" doesn't seem like it would hurt. Motzos, or Matzah, are a crisp unleavened bread traditionally...
