DIRECTIONS

  • In a small mixing bowl, combine yeast and water, stirring until dissolved. Add 2/3 cup of flour and beat till smooth. Cover with a towel and set aside until doubled and bubbling about 45 minutes.
  • In a large mixing bowl, blend milk, sugar, salt, lemon rind. Stir in butter and eggs. Beat in yeast mixture and 4 cups of flour until smooth. Gradually, add enough flour to make a SOFT, workable dough. (You might need less if using bread flour).
  • Turn out and knead until satiny about 15 minutes. Place dough in large greased bowl ( I use two large bowls because this dough rises a lot.).
  • Cover loosely with plastic wrap and towel. Set in a warm, protected spot overnight.
  • Next morning punch dough down, knead 3 minutes, cover and let rest 10 to 15 minutes.
  • Shape into rolls or braids or pan bread or Paska.
  • Place on a greased sheet or pans or (coffee cans for paska)(fill paska 2/3 full).
  • Butter coffee cans well and sprinkle with fine bread crumbs. I like to spray pans with vegetable spray and sprinkle with bread crumbs. Let dough rise for about 30 to 40 minutes.
  • Brush with egg wash. Bake 350 degrees for 35 to 40 minutes or until brown. Remove and cool on a wire rack.
  • Adjust baking time for rolls or kolach.
