From ShadoeRose


  • 3/4 cup milk
  • 1 package active dry yeast
  • 3 1/4 – 3 1/2 cups flour
  • 1/3 cup honey
  • 1 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 cup butter or margarine
  • 1/4 cup warm water
  • 1 cup quick or old fashioned oats, uncooked
  • 1 egg
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon

Icing Ingredients:

  • 1 1/2 cups confectioners sugar

For bread, heat together milk and butter in small saucepan over medium heat, stirring occasionally until butter is melted; cool to lukewarm. Dissolve yeast in water. In large bowl combine butter mixture, dissolved yeast, 1 cup flour, oats, honey, egg, salt and cinnamon; mix well. Add enough additional flour to make soft dough. Knead on lightly floured surface 8-10 minutes or until smooth and elastic. Shape to form ball. Place in greased large bowl, turning once to coat surface of dough. Cover; let rise in warm place about 1 hour or until double in size. Punch dough down. Cover; let rest 10 minutes. Divide dough in half. For bunny body, shape half of dough to form a 36" long rope. Loosely roll up rope spiral fashion; pinch dough to seal end tightly. Place about 3" from bottom of greased large cookie sheet; press down slightly. Divide remaining dough in half. For bunny head, shape one half to form a 25" rope. Loosely roll up rope spiral fashion; seal end tightly. Attach to top of body on cookie sheet by pinching dough together. Divide remaining dough into thirds. For tail, shape one third to form a 15" long rope. Loosely roll up like others; pinch to seal end. Attach to side of body on cookie sheet by pinching dough together. Shape remaining dough to form two 3 1/2 long bunny ears. Attach to head by pinching dough together. Let rise about 1 hour or until nearly double in size. Heat oven to 350 degrees. Bake 30-35 minutes or until golden brown. Cool on wire cooling rack. For icing, combine ingredients, mix until smooth. Drizzle over cooled bread.
