Greek Easter Bread

Rating: 4.5 stars 6
This is a very nice bread to serve anytime of the year not just at Easter. My mother always made this at Easter time, and I was finally able to get the recipe out of her. Now I want to share it with you. This recipe makes 2 loaves.

Choereg (Armenian Easter Bread)

Rating: 5 stars 74 my mother would just kill me if she knew I made our family recipe for Choereg public. But my policy is 'why keep a good thing to myself'. Choereg is a traditional, slightly sweet bread, especially made for Easter. It is delicious for breakfast with a nice cup of coffee. It takes some level of skill, but anyone used to handling yeast should not have a problem. You can find Mahleb at Middle Eastern grocery stores, especially around Easter. It will be with the spices. Please do not omit it, as this is what gives it its distinctive flavour and aroma.

Schlotsky's Bread

The dough will look resemble a batter, almost pourable. Take care not to add too much flour. If using all-purpose flour, use a little less as it is heavier than bread flour. Great to eat hot from the oven with butter.
