There are many variations on how to form an Easter bunny. This is a more human shape with or without an Easter egg in its arms – similar to my Weckmann.
How to form an Easter Bunny – Version 2
Roll a strand with a thick middle part and thinner tips. Form two puffs at one of the ends by pressing the edge of your hand into the dough, one with 6cm length Ears) and one with 8 cm lengths (Head). Lay the strand on a paper lined baking tray and twist the strand at the thin parts between the puffs. Now cut the 6 cm long puff lengthwise to form the ears. Now cut the arms on both sides of the loaf (length 9 cm) and form the legs with a 9 cm cut (see picture). Fold the tip of the leg in a 90°C angle to form the feet. Now contour the feet and the ears. Lay a Easter egg on the belly of the bunny and fold the arms around them or, for the easter egg less variation, just fold the arms over the belly. Press three raisins in the head to form eyes and nose.
