Hundreds of adorable Honey Bunnies will be featured at the Annapolis Great Harvest Bakery located at 208 Ridgely Ave. throughout the weeks leading up to Easter. Hand-crafted in both large and small sizes, they are perfect for Easter table centerpieces, for hostess gifts and for nestling in children’s Easter baskets.
“We look forward to this Great Harvest tradition every year,” said owner Pam Storm. “Kids and adult alike ‘ooh’ and ‘ahh’ over these adorable whole wheat bunnies. Once a bunny is “adopted” they often go on to be used as table centerpieces, as veggie dip bowls, or as a creative addition to an Easter basket.”
According to Storm, no two bunnies are quite the same. The artisans at Great Harvest handcraft each bunny. Like all Great Harvest products, these bunnies are so fresh there’s no need for additives, preservatives or dough conditioners. The kneaders and bakers of Great Harvest create the bunnies using five simple ingredients – freshly ground whole-wheat flour, honey, yeast, water, and salt. The bakery anticipates creating hundreds of Honey Bunnies, and is taking pre-orders through Tuesday, March 26.
In addition to Honey Bunnies, this month the bakery is featuring Hot Cross Buns – perfect for brunch or as a light dessert. They are available on March 21 and March 28-30. Another popular favorite is the Easter Ambrosia bread, a pineapple citrus loaf with coconut, golden raisins, slivered almonds and a touch of cinnamon all gently braided and given a drizzle of frosting. Easter Ambrosia bread will be available every day through March 30. The bakery will also feature its popular Virginia Potato Rolls, and a variety of other sweet and savory items to grace your Easter table.
Originally founded in 1976 in Great Falls, Montana, Great Harvest has more than 200 bakeries located throughout the nation including Alaska and Hawaii—all bakeries are individually owned and operated, and no two are alike. Great Harvest is known for handcrafted breads made with freshly ground whole wheat purchased from family-owned farms. The neighborhood bakeries create an array of legendary fresh baked breads and sweets, as well as specialty items during the holidays. Great Harvest mills its whole wheat daily. The fresh flour is used within two days to guarantee the best taste and nutritional value.
