An Italian Easter Afternoon

 Just a quick post about my Easter festivities. I headed down to Tasmania to see my beautiful family and one thing I was most excited to do was to make our traditional Italian Easter cake.

 Combine 6 Eggs, 6 Tbs Butter, 1 Cup Sugar and 1 Tsp Vanilla and mix well, Add 3 cups of flour until a firm consistency.

Shape into a fish and put a washed raw egg in the mouth.  Use scissors to make 'scales' and two coffee beans for eyes.
 Put an egg wash over and sprinkle wish sugar.

Such a simple 'Pane Dolce' but something deep in tradition with my family and something I look forward to every year.  This year Mumma Casten made herb pizza for lunch that we had with some fresh figs from our tree.

Buona Pasqua!
