Pregnant Bunny Egg Bread

so, some friends from work and I were having lunch and rehashing our Easter meals. Lucy and Rob, both "eye-talians", were telling Nadia & I of a bread their grandma's make, sometimes shaped as a bunny -- with a whole hardboiled egg inside it, often in the belly. so it looks like it's "with child" - or "with bunny", in this case. anyhow, at our lunch table is was named, for ever after, Pregnant Bunny Egg Bread. though i could not find a pic depicting a bunny, i did find a photo of the bread as a wreath. pictured here. and, after some research, found that it is simply called Italian Easter bread..... our name is MUCH better!
