What you will need:

  • 1 kg Easter cake flour
  • 1 cube yeast
  • 200 ml milk
  • 2 t.c sugar
  • ½ t.c oil
  • 4 eggs
  • 1 t.c raisins
  • 1 t.c walnuts

        If you wish you can make the stuffing with chocolate or your favourite jam

  • 1 lemon

How to prepare it: 

Pour the milk in a bowl and add the yeast, one spoon of sugar and two spoons of flour. Let the yeast to rise for 15-20 minutes. While waiting, break the eggs in another bowl, and mix it with the sugar and the lemon peel. Stir till the sugar is dissolved.

Sift out the flour at least once. It is good to sift the flour out, because it improves the Easter cake’s taste and texture. Add to the flour, the risen yeast and the egg mixture. Stir well and start kneading the dough for 15-20 minutes. Sip the oil on small portions, so the dough gets soft. After that beat it at least 100 times on the table. Then place in an oiled pot, and leave it for 45-60 minutes, or until it doubles its size.

Now decide what shape you want your Easter cake to have. If you want it to be in the shape of braid, cut the dough in three equal pieces and  roll them out. Stuff them with walnuts and raisins and roll it. Then braid the pieces together. Another way is to roll out the whole dough, stuff it again with raisins and walnuts, roll it and place in a tin, which will give shape to the Easter cake.

All you need is imagination and a nice tin.

After the cake is stuffer, and place in the tin, let it rise again for a hour. Spread on top the Easter cake yolk, dust  a lot of  sugar and bake on 200 degrees for 45 minutes.
