This bread dough is lightly sweetened and enriched with egg. The dough is wrapped around raw eggs, glazed and scattered with sugar sprinkles before being baked. Although traditionally served at Easter, feel free to enjoy them any time of the year.
This is a very tasty bread. I loved the recipe. Perfect just the way it is. One reviewer had stated that the breads are not called pregnant dolls, I come from a traditional Italian family and my Grandmother refered to them as "a fertal Goddess" I think in reference to Spring being the time for new life. Which is why we have eggs for Easter. So all names lead to the same great bread. - 08 Feb 2008 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
This sounds just like what I use to make but we called it a "Birds Nest". Still very tasty. - 07 Mar 2009 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
