"You need quality products, tireless hands and a little enthusiasm for a tasty cozonac."


  • eggs - 2 + 1 egg white (egg yolk for smearing)
  • milk - 1 cup
  • butter - 1/2 cup
  • sugar - 1 cup
  • rum - 1 tablespoon
  • vanilla - 2
  • salt - 1/2 tsp
  • flour - 5 cups + some for kneading
  • yeast - 1 tablespoon, dry
  • orange zest - grated
  • oil
  • turkish delight - 1 box
  • raisins - 2/5 cup (100 g)

How to cook

Stir the milk and sugar until the sugar dissolves. To them add the lightly beaten eggs, the butter, orange zest, vanilla, rum, salt, flour and yeast.

Knead a soft dough and leave it to rise while covered. Divide the dough into 2-3 parts. Divide each of those into another 3, make cords from them. Smear each cord with additional oil.

Weave the cords together 3 at a time, put Turkish delight in one, raisins in the 2nd, leave the 3rd empty. Weave into a braid, place it in an oiled, floured tray. Leave to rise again.

Smear the risen cozonacs with egg yolk and sprinkle with sugar. Bake in a preheated 356°F (180 °C) oven about 20 min. or until golden.

Notes: The eggs and milk need to be at room temperature!

Keep in mind that this is a sweet dough which takes longer to rise. If putting them to rise in the oven, heat it to 122°F (50 °C) max!
