Country Babka – Homemade Sweet Bread

I always wanted to try a Babka recipe, to taste the difference between Paska (Ukrainian Easter Bread) and the very popular Babka.  This year I finally baked Babka and everyone loved its taste and texture.The recipe is basically the same as for Paska, but it requires 2x the amount of yeast and butter, 1/2 the amount of flour,  but same amount of sugar, which you may decrease to your taste.

Traditional Easter Bread – Ukrainian Paska Recipe

Easter is one of my favorite holidays, because of its rich traditions. One of these is the blessing of a basket of special foods which becomes the Easter Sunday brunch, being the first meat meal, after a strict fast on Good Friday and Saturday. One of the special foods in that basket is a round shaped Easter Bread, called Paska in Ukrainian, or Babka in Polish. The top of this bread is elaborately decorated with fancy dough ornaments, having a cross as the central motif. Here is my family Paska recipe, which makes two large loaves, or several small ones.

One Hour French Bread – Quick and Delicious Homemade Bread Recipe

I love fresh bread, and lately have been testing many breads and rolls recipes.  They all are absolutely delicious.

Some require a little more time than others, but none are too labor intensive or difficult to achieve.

I always thought that the ” No Knead”  bread recipe was simple, and it is, but when I found this one for ONE HOUR bread, I could  not believe it, until I made it and found it absolutely effortless and delicious.

I would have made it into a baguette, but since I do not have a  special baking pan it requires, I used two loaf pans instead.
