Easter Bread Day!

The Saturday before Easter is Easter Bread Day in our family.  All of the girls get together and spend the day catching up and making a lemon yeast bread.

This bread takes about 4 hours to make if you are making only one bread.  This year we made 8 breads!  So we take our time and enjoy each other’s company.

My mom and I started making this bread in 1980 to have for breakfast Easter morning.

We have made it every year since.  We used to be very good about waiting for Easter morning to eat it – not so much anymore!  After spending the day in a house that smells of fresh baked lemon bread, it is too hard to wait!  Thankfully, we make enough to have both days.

The guys have their own fun this day – doing guy things.  This year they went to the park and played sports.
