I have never heard of egg bread, but wow, this is so pretty. I like the idea of making it with lemon zest. The colored eggs and colored sprinkles are so wonderful for Easter day. Is it difficult to make a yeast bread? I have only used yeast to make bread machine breads.

This is so pretty and colorful! I LOVE egg bread and think this would be a super fun way to celebrate Easter this year. I'm bummed it's so late in the year, we have to wait almost an entire other month!
