How to cook

Dissolve the yeast in cool milk with 1 teaspoon sugar and leave it for 20 minutes until effervescent. Sift the flour into a large pan and in a well in the middle add the yeast, eggs, yoghurt, salt, oil, water and knead gradually. Throughout, add more flour and knead until you get a smooth and soft dough. Cover it and leave in a warm place to rise for about 40 minutes and if needed - longer.

You can customize your loaf. An option is to make 3 long wick sections, tie them in a plait and cover the tray with it. Another option is to take a part of the dough and form different figures on the main part of the loaf. The easiest way is to separate it into the balls and arrange them in a greased tray.

Leave it to rise again, brush with beaten egg, sprinkle it with sesame seeds, poppy seeds, or with just egg. Put it to bake in a heated 360°F (180 °C) oven until ready.
