Osterzopf? German Easter bread?

Has anyone made Osterzopf before, or at least eaten it? Most of the recipes I have been able to find on the web are in German, and I'm sure I could figure out all the measurements and things, but it would be nice if someone had a TNT recipe to share (in English )

There are a bunch of recipes on Youtube that look good. Some are basic braided breads and others are braided with a filling of sugar and dried fruit in each strand of the braid. Still another contained a a filling and was baked in a bundt pan.

I have no idea what would be considered the most traditional. I just wanted to make something German for Easter.

I found this place with a recipe in English. Have never made it so can't verify the recipe but the pictures look good.The Foreign Kitchen: Osterzopf: A Braided German Easter Bread

Yeah, I did see that one while I was searching around. And yeah, I have no clue either whether it's any good or not. I might just go with a Greek Easter bread recipe as a base and modify it into a Osterzopf. Seems like all those Easter egg-bread recipes are the same anyways!

I noticed that my grocery store has an Easter bread that looks a bit like German stollen or perhaps the same batter as hot cross buns. I'll probably get one or the other but dh and I are the only ones who eat it. Our kids and grandkids don't eat anything with glazed fruit in it. They are missing a lot!

Hey, Cara, long time no see! Hope all is well with you.

Thanks for this! I have saved it and will try to surprise my in-laws next Easter! They are from Germany and since all their kids (5) were born here and the daughters and daughters-in-law do most of the holiday dinners, the old traditions have been lost.
