Healthy Braided Easter Bread with Raisins (Pane Di Pasqua)


Italian Easter bread (Pane di Pasqua) is the perfect start to Easter. It symbolizes the rebirth of the spring season and Christ's resurrection.

This enriched bread is braided into a beautiful wreath, that is further adorned with colored eggs. In addition to being aesthetically appealing, it is so fluffy and tasty.

I prepared it entirely using healthy ingredients, and packed it with plump juicy raisins to elevate the taste. For the first time, I tried to bulk proof the dough overnight in the fridge. I wanted to have the dough ready in the morning and freshly bake the bread. That was quite convenient and provided superior results.
