    sassafrasnanc's Note:

    We attended a Russian Orthodox Church while living in Boston and I collected many great recipes over these years. My friend Athanasia gave me this recipe which was her mother's in Poland. This was always a favorite with my children! I wish I had some great pictures to post of some of these special, beautiful Easter dishes. Watch for more...

      Oh, very tasty! I followed the recipe very closely, just found that I need about 1 cup more flour...maybe because I mixed by hand, not by mixer. It didn't look like it was going to work; it didn't rise like a typical white loaf; I suppose because it is denser. But it finished up nicely in the oven and is very tasty! I used standard loaf pans for two small to moderate size loaves. A definite keeper! Edited to say on Easter, my daughter had "paska" bread (easter bread) at her Slovak grandmother's house and her Polish boyfriend's house--and she rated the one I made from this recipe as the BEST one she had all day. :)

      Unique and delicious flavor. Not too sweet. Nice, almost cake-like texture. Up until the rising part, I used my Kitchen Aid mixer. .. Da Bomb bobka without all the work! Well done!
