Sweet holiday breads are part of the Easter traditions in many countries around the world. I think it's a wonderful way to learn about the way other cultures celebrate the season by delving in to these recipes, and getting a "taste" of the unique ways in which the people of different lands commemorate the religious "rising".
So far, this year, my family and I have baked up Colomba di Pasqua, the traditional Easter bread of Italy. We created a version filled with candied orange and bits of semisweet chocolate. Sliced, toasted and served with honey drizzled mascarpone, it was divine!
Today, I was thrilled to come across two new recipes that I'm eager to try:

I may not be able to claim any Bohemian ancestry, but that's not likely to stop me from trying the recipe for Bohemian Houska shared with me by Debby over at "Just Breathe".
