Traditional Easter Baking Recipes

Easter celebrates not only the resurrection of Jesus Christ, but the coming of spring and the return of fertility to the land. The traditional foods for Easter reflect this.

By the time spring came around to most cultures, the fresh fruits, vegetables and meats were long gone or just about out. The traditional foods for the springtime celebration, therefore, were baked goods - primarily breads and eggs, which were available year round.
