Sweet Tsourekia buns!

in Foodies Bee Hive2 months ago (edited)

Today was my first attempt to make sweet tsourekia buns, a traditional Easter recipe.


I followed a new recipe I found on a Facebook Cooking Group, made a nice dough and let it rest on the stove for 2 hours. Then I made my beautiful braids...


Brushed some egg wash, sprinkled a little sesame on top and baked in a preheated oven at 200 degrees for about half an hour.


The scents of mahleb, cardamom and orange filled the house! We already had one braid with Trumpman for dinner. Two are going to our mothers tomorrow, another two are waiting to be consumed for breakfast, snack or whatever and three are going in the freezer for those sudden cravings...

It looks delicious and very soft, just imagining the taste of those spices in the bread has made me want to try it.

Oh yeah and with a cup of coffee on the side or some hot chocolate it's pure paradise...
