TOP 3 recipes for making paschi with wine

A week later, on Maundy Thursday, the housewives will bake Easter cakes to consecrate them at Easter in the church. It is also customary to put wine in the Easter basket for consecration. Despite the public outrage, the wine is approved by the Orthodox Church and is an attribute of the Easter family or friendly feast. After all, even at the Last Supper, Christ, having broken the bread, called it his body, and the wine poured into the cup – his blood. 

Wine, especially good cahors, is appropriate on this church holiday. It should have a tart taste and a bright aroma.  Dessert wines are served at a temperature of 18-20 °C. They are suitable not only for sweet dishes, but also for the entire festive feast. Preparing forFor Easter 2021, the editors of MustHub invite you to experiment with the ingredients, and share interesting recipes for pasok, which use wine-in the dough, in additives, and even in the glaze.

Ingredients:

for the test:

  • 600 g flour,
  • 6 eggs,
  • 300 ml of milk,
  • 200 g butter,
  • 2 cups sugar,
  • 10 g vanilla sugar,
  • 50 g yeast,
  • 100 g of raisins,
  • 50 g almonds,
  • 50 g dessert wine,
  • salt to taste;

for the glaze:

  • 1 tablespoon butter,
  • 1 tablespoon cream,
  • 100 g powdered sugar,
  • 1 tablespoon of lemon juice.

Preparation:

  1. Mix the yeast with 1 tablespoon of sugar. Pour in the milk and, stirring, gradually pour in 1 cup of sifted flour. Put the sourdough in a warm place for 1-1. 5 hours, so that it increases about 2 times.
  2. Separate the whites from the yolks and leave 1 yolk to lubricate the cake, and put the whites in the refrigerator. Rub the remaining yolks with sugar.
  3. Add the sugar-yolk mixture, melted butter, salt, vanilla sugar and mix thoroughly.
  4. Beat the cooled whites into a dense foam and gently introduce them into the sourdough. While stirring, add the sifted flour and knead a soft, pliable dough so that it lags behind the hands and walls of the dishes. Cover the dough and put it in a warm place for 2-3 hours, until it increases several times.
  5. Wash the raisins, pour warm wine and leave to infuse for 30 minutes. Then take it out and roll it in flour. Dip the almonds in boiling water for 2 minutes, peel them and grind them. Carefully add the raisins and almonds to the dough. Again, knead the dough well and leave to approach for a couple of hours.
  6. Forms for cakes covered with parchment and grease with oil. Obomni dough, fill them with forms about 1/3 of the height and leave the dough to come almost to the top. Smear the cakes with beaten egg yolk and send them to the oven preheated to 180°C.
  7. Easter cakes, depending on the size, are baked for 40-60 minutes. Readiness can be determined with a wooden stick: if it is dry, the cake is ready. Ready-made cakes cool slightly and carefully remove from the molds.
  8. Prepare the icing. To do this, heat the cream a little, add butter, powdered sugar, lemon juice and whisk thoroughly. Fill the icing with a warm cake and leave it for 1 hour, so that it freezes.
