Do you already have ideas for Easter? Here’s a little inspiration, simple little Easter bunnies.

These sweet Easter bunnies are made out of a yeast dough that is fried in oil.
If it’s not Easter, you could also cut out other shapes or squares.

They taste best when they are fresh, either plain, with applesauce or, vanilla sauce.
