This recipe is from the Traditional Ukrainian Cookery cookbook by Savella Stechishin (pg.415) if you have her book. This book was extremely popular in the 1970s, and now you still can find it on Amazon.com.
I love making these Rosettes for special occasions because they look so dainty, but it is a time-consuming process like with most baking projects.
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.
