Easter is upon us and this year, many of us a celebrating in a different way.

Normally we are with family or family friends and have a huge Easter hunt planned altogether.

This year, it is just our little family, so we are planning a few different ideas in our regular mix. Creating this story is just one of them.

I hope your little ones enjoy the story and also enjoy making a little Bunny Scavenger Hunt Art work too.

If you see down below, there will be another video added to show you how to make the Easter buns. They are truly delicious and I implore you to make them. There is a per child recipe and a recipe for 6 buns.

Happy Easter and stay safe and well.

If you would like to make a little Easter bun (without the cross!!!) then I have  little recipe below for you. Well there are two recipes. A per child recipe (first) and then a large quantity which makes around 6 buns.

Easter bun recipe (per child)

What you need is:

  • 4 tbs of plain flour (around 50g)
  • 1 tsp of honey or sugar
  • 1 tsp of dry yeast
  • 1/2 tsp of cinnamon
  • 1/2 tsp of melted butter or oil
  • 1 tbs of whisked egg
  • 4 tbs of warm milk (around 30ml)
  • 10 sultanas/raisins/chopped dried fruit
  • Candy coated chocolate egg.

What you do is:

Place the flour, yeast, sugar, butter and egg into a bowl and lighlty mix through. Pour over the warm milk and the sultanas and bring into a ball.

Lightly flour a surface and knead the little ball for a few minutes until all the ingredients are lovely and smooth. You might need to add a little flour or a little milk to get dough just right.

Leave the bun to rise for around 30 minutes. When it has risen by double, rework it slightly into a bun shape, pop in a little chocolate egg and leave it to rest for around 10 minutes. Then you pop it into a 190 degree oven for approximately 10 minutes (or until golden).

If you would like to make enough buns for 6 people, here is the recipe below.

Easter bun recipe (6 buns)

What you need is:

  • 2 cups of plain flour
  • 1/8 cup of honey or sugar
  • 7g of dry yeast
  • 2 tsp of cinnamon
  • 1/2 tsp of ginger
  • 1/2 tsp of clove
  • 30 g of melted butter or oil
  • 1  whisked egg
  • 150ml of warm milk (around 30ml)
  • 3/4 cup of sultanas/raisins/chopped dried fruit
  • 6 x candy coated chocolate eggs.

What you do is:

You make it exactly the same as the per child recipe, except you have one main ball, let that prove for 30 minutes where it should double in size. Then create 6 little buns and let them prove for another 10-15 minutes or so until they double in size again.

Then you cook the buns in 190 degree oven for around 20-25 minutes.
