Easter Bread Paska and Babka – 3 favorite Recipes

I have been baking Easter Paska for several years now using this favorite recipe my family loves.

Lately, I started to experiment with other recipes just to see how different this bread is from my usual recipe.

The work is the same, but the texture does differ between these recipes, however, they ALL are absolutely delicious.

Light and Airy Paska – Aunt Maria’s Recipe

I have my favorite Easter Paska recipe, which I have been baking for many years and my family loves it.

However, I was always very impressed by my aunt’s light and airy Paska/Babka, so as soon I received her recipe I baked this wonderful and delicious bread in my own kitchen and was very happy with the final results.  My family fully approved as well.

Blueberry Sweet Bread – Recipe

This Blueberry Sweet Bread with a glass of milk makes a perfect after-school snack for your kids or grandkids. It is not too sweet and all those blueberries are so good for all of us.

My granddaughter gave it high marks, but my grandson expressed his preference for an apple cake.

Steamed Fruit Dumplings – Recipe and Technique

This recipe is a very old favorite of mine. It reminds me of my grandmother’s cooking days and my Sunday visits to her with my mom.
I love these fluffy dumplings because they are so light in texture, and so delicious served with melted butter and sugar.
This recipe goes back to my great-grandmother who was of German descent, and most likely back to her mother and grandmother, which datewise would go back to the 1700s.

Quick Homemade Donuts (Paczki, Pampushky) – Recipe

I love homemade donuts, especially those made from a Ukrainian or Polish recipe, since it reminds me of my mom’s heaping plate of these, for special occasions, or weekends.

If you ever had homemade donuts, you will agree that they are absolutely delicious!!
