Orange Bunny Rolls

The Orange Bunny Rolls I baked for Easter brunch this year were a rift on my Italian Anise Easter Bread recipe of years past. In fact, I just took that dough recipe, swirled it in orange marmalade, and gave it bunny ears. Festive and YUM! The idea to shape my rolls into bunnies and fill…

I decided to take a break from my weekly sourdough boules and do something a little different with my sourdough starter this week. This is a rift on the dill crispbreads I made this past summer; similar process, but with a slightly different flavor profile. Instead of fresh dill, I’m using freshly grated grapefruit zest,…
