How to make Ukrainian Easter bread?
Paska, or Ukrainian Easter Bread, is a sweet, rich bread that hails from Eastern Europe. In a small bowl, stir together the yeast, warm water, and 2 teaspoons of sugar. If you are using an instant-read thermometer, the water should be between 100°–110°F. Set this aside for about 10 minutes, until the yeast becomes bubbly or foamy on top.
What is Ukrainian Paska bread?
Paska or Kulich is a traditional Easter bread that is very popular in Eastern European countries. Every country has its own spin on this classic. Today I'm going to show a traditional Ukrainian recipe, the one that my family has been making for years and the one that never lets us down. This year Orthodox Easter is the same day as Catholic Easter.
How do you bake a Paska?
Before baking brush the top of the Paska with a beaten egg diluted with 1 tablespoon of water (which I forgot to do in the photo) * It's not absolutely necessary, but it's just not as shiny. Bake at 350 degrees F for 25-35 minutes or until golden brown. * If ornaments are browning too quickly, cover very loosely with tinfoil or parchment paper.
