A Russian Easter bread of course!
Also a Jewish Sabbath bread
...and some Italian summer biscotti:
You just might get the idea that I love borrowing from other cultures. Our festive traditions are snowballing! The Kulich nearly got eaten before I remembered to photograph it. It did not have a dramatic rise but was went down a bomb. It's a lot like panetonne with the fruit and nut mixture soaked in the alcoholic beverage of your choice. All three recipes are rather higher fat than our daily loaf having more fat/eggs/sugar than our daily fare. They each taste delicious.
Have a peaceful 2013, wherever you are!
