This is what has been keeping me from posting yesterday!
18 eggs, 6 lbs flour and the result is 11 kozunaci ( Easter breads)!
At one point I thought I would never finish! I have a small, non-convection oven and it takes 3 times more time to bake them than in convection oven. But, after 8 hours straight baking, here they are:
Plain kozunaci with brandy soaked raisins and sugar/almond/sesame crust before baking
Here they are, already baked:
A closer look:
Second set of 3 with raisins:
6 for good measure:
I just realized that I didn’t take a picture of the three I made with mixed fruit and walnuts( pineapple, papaya, cherries, raisins) . They were with topping only of sugar, no nuts on top, other than that they looked exactly the same as the others. I hope I can take a picture of the inside, we already ate one ( blush) and although I make these for a first time, they came out great!
Here is a small plain one with sesame and sugar crust:
And here is a new style with chocolate chips that I tried for a first year. I got the idea from here Coronita cu ciocolata
– first you roll out the dough and sprinkle with chocolate chips
– then you roll it in
– then you cut thin slices
– then you place it in the greased pan and bake the same as the other kozunaci:
– and here is the baked one:
If you want to see my previous years kozunaci, take a look here( click)!
I am off to plan the egg painting for tomorrow! I plan on making some crescents with chocolate and Turkish delight, so stay tuned as they say 🙂 , there might be more to see tomorrow!
Happy Easter everyone!
