Easy Easter Breads: Sweet Buns and Scones for Easter Weekend

Easy Easter breads for sweet family gatherings.

Sweet buns and scones are my favourite Easter treats. I won’t turn my nose up at chocolate but if I’m going to indulge, it’s a good cinnamon bun or barely-sweet hot cross bun that I’ll fill up on over Easter weekend. My kids can’t resist cinnamon buns and can devour a batch in a day, (along with their chocolate.)

For Easter weekend “easy” is the key.

With long lazy mornings there’s time to bake before breakfast. Quick bread recipes can be speedy to mix up and easy yeast bread recipes come in handy too. For beginners, simple yeast breads that include egg are very forgiving.

And the best part about fitting bread baking into you Easter weekend – there’s time to enjoy these breads right out of the oven, when they taste the best.

From traditional Hot Cross Buns to biscuit-dough Cinnamon Molasses Sticky Buns, we’re sharing 4 favourite recipes for Easter breads will make your Easter breakfast or brunch table extra special.
