Italian Easter Bread Recipe

Joanne Bellezza-Loughlin Recipe

By Joanne Bellezza-Loughlin Joannebl

This is my mom's recipe. She got it from her girlfriend, Bernie. Both great cooks. The directions weren't that great so I had to improvise a bit. I'm posting this for Val who requested it. Val, hope you make this and let us know how it turns out. Will definitely be making this for Easter this year!
