Orthodox Easter is in about two weeks and we need to perfect our cooking skills and collect enough recipes to choose the best ones the Grandmothers Kulich is great with tea.


We need to perfect our cooking skills.

  • 1 c milk
  • 1/2 yeast stick
  • 200 g sugar
  • 200 g butter
  • 3 ea eggs
  • vanilla
  • cardamom, nutmeg
  • salt
  • white raisins
  • 4 c flour (more if needed)


  • Dissolve yeast and 1 teaspoon sugar in a small quantity of milk.
  • As soon as the yeast mixture rises, pour in the rest of milk, beat in eggs and whip carefully.
  • Add sugar, combined with cardamom and nutmeg, and melted butter to the mixture.
  • Then pour in flour slowly, stirring carefully, so that there aren’t lumps.
  • It the end, stir in raisins.
  • Then divide dough in loaf cakes, depending on the quantity and size of molds, and put in molds.
  • Cover with a clean towel and leave to rise in the mold.
  • It the dough is good, it usually takes 2-3 hours.
  • After that put in a preheated oven and bake on average heat until light brown.
  • Don’t open the oven often; otherwise Kulich wont be light and fluffy.
  • Check the readiness with a wooden stick – put it in the Grandmothers Kulich.
  • If the stick is clean, the cake is ready and can be taken out.
