Daddys Easter Paska Bread
Recipe type: Bread
  • 8½ Cups flour
  • 2⅓ Cups milk
  • 1 large fresh yeast (or a package of dry yeast) Dad always had the best results with fresh yeast)
  • ¾ Cup warm water
  • 1 T. salt
  • ½ cups plus 2T. sugar
  • ½ cup margarine
  • 3 eggs
  1. Scald milk and margarine; let cool. Dissolve yeast in ¾ C. of warm water and 2 T. sugar. Set aside in a warm place. Mix ½ C. flour, remaining sugar and salt, beaten eggs and milk. When about half mixed, add yeast mixture and remaining flour. Knead well. Let rise about 1½ hours in warm place.
  2. Shape into 3 round loaves. Place in greased deep cake pans and let rise again to tops of pans. Bake at 375 for 40-50 minutes, or until done. When about half baked, brush top with melted butter.
  3. *My dad would braid his dough and pinch it into a circle and then cover and let it rise. Before putting it into the oven to bake, he would place colored easter eggs into the bread.*
  4. **For non family members, he would give them plain loaves**
