  1. Wonderful cake Viktoria! Looks very fluffy! Have you tried adding a little sugar to the bread mix, or is this not part of the traditional Kulich? The Greek equivalent (Easter bread) is tsoureki (we’ll post a recipe), but it’s much sweeter.
    Our churches also hold night services on the Saturday before Easter! On 12 o clock (am) the bells start to toll to announce Christ’s resurrection, we kiss each other and go back home to taste magiritsa. Easter is a huge deal for us Greeks, and when we wake up on Sunday we eat, drink and dance all day long with friends and family.
    Have a beautiful Easter dear Viktoria, we hope you have a fantastic time!
    Lots of hugs,
    Panos and Mirella

      Dear Panos and Mirella,
      Thank you again for stopping by. I always love your comments and very much appreciate them.
      The recipe from above calls for 1 1/2 cups of sugar and yes this bread is also came out very sweet.
      I know that many Greek traditions on celebrating Easter are very much similar to what we have in Russia. This Sunday our family was invited to celebrate this wonderful holiday to our friends’ house. My friend’s Mom is going to make traditional bread Kulich and she is planning to do it all day on Saturday.
      The Russian Churches here in Dallas are offering night services on the day before the Easter.
      Have a nice and happy Easter my friends!
      Looking forward to your traditional Easter bread recipe!
