  • Dough ingredients:
  • Please see Sweet Braided Easter Bread with Raisins I used same ingredients.
  • Glaze Ingredients:
  • ¼ cup – milk
  • 2 ½ cups – powdered sugar
  • 1 tbsp. – fresh lemon juice
  • Sprinkles
  1. Use same steps as for the Sweet Braided Easter Bread with Raisins to prepare the dough. After the dough rises, remove from the plate onto oiled large cutting board.
  2. Split the dough onto 3 – 4 pieces, depends how big is your pots. If you are using 6” wide and 3” deep you will need to divide the dough into 4 pieces.
  3. Place the dough into oiled pots. Let it rise for 45 minutes in the warm oven (I preheat oven to 110 F and then turn it off). After the bread rises, remove from the oven. Heat the oven to 350 F. Bake all the breads in one oven for 40-45 minutes (depends on the oven). If the top gets dark cover with foil and keep baking.
  4. While your bread is baking make the glaze. Into a small bowl add milk and powdered sugar. Mix for few minutes. Add lemon juice squeezed from a lemon. Beat for another minute. Cover and set aside until ready to use.
  5. Remove from the oven. Cool for 5 minutes in pots. Then remove from the pots cool for another 5 minutes and then glaze one Paska at a time and sprinkle with colorful sprinkle (the glaze dries fast so if you wait with sprinkling sprinkles then they will not stick to glaze). Enjoy!
