Easter dinner is just a little more fun if you serve these cute little Easter Bunny Rolls. They are not just adorable, they’re delicious too!
Since Easter is just around the corner, I thought I should start sharing some of my favorite Easter recipes with you. I made these Easter Bunny rolls last year and thought they were so cute. My boys aren’t really into cute, but they did think it was hilarious that we were eating “bunny bums”. I’m sure if you have girls at your house, these will be much more appreciated than they were here. 🙂
Feel free to use any dough recipe that you like. You could even use frozen dough, or the canned variety. It’s the shape that makes them fun!
Easter Recipe-Easter Bunny Rolls
1/2 cup sugar
1 Tbsp SAF instant yeast
2/3 cup hot water
1 cup milk
2 Tbsp butter, melted
2 Tbsp oil
1 1/2 tsp salt
5 cups flour (more or less to make a soft dough)
In large bowl (I used my Bosch), combine sugar, yeast, and water. Add milk, melted butter, oil, eggs, salt, and 2 cups of the flour. Beat till smooth. Add enough flour to make a soft dough. Knead for 4-5 minutes with the Bosch.
To form bunnies:
3-I like to place them on cookie sheets at this point. Twist together one more time, then pinch the ends to form the ears.
5-Break off small pieces of dough to form the tails. You can either roll the dough to form balls, or keep tucking the edges under till the dough forms a smooth ball. (I use the tuck method.) Place a tail on each bunny body:
6-Let the rolls rise till doubled, about 30 minutes. Bake at 350° for about 18 minutes. Brush with butter while still hot.

- Break off pieces of dough and roll them into ropes. Make a loop and twist the tops together, forming pointy ears. Place on greased cookie sheets. Then form balls of dough and place them on the loops to make the tails.
- Let the rolls rise till doubled, about 30-45 minutes. Bake at 350° for about 18 minutes. Brush with butter while still hot.
