Pascha Sweet Bread

Warm 4 cups of milk with

1 pound butter

cool in large bowl,

beat 12 eggs with

1 Tablespoon salt and

2.5 cups sugar

Meanwhile mix

4 Tablespoons yeast with

1 cup warm water and

1 Tablespoon sugar and

1 Tablespoon flour

let proof

Add all the above together with about 19-21 cups of flour to make a very soft dough. Knead with up to 1/4 cup oil on hands. Let rise twice in its bowl. Form into loaves, or put in greased pans, brush with egg wash if you want to. Bake a 350 degrees

Small loaf pan;s about 35 minutes

Large loaf pans; up to about an hour.

Personally I found smaller loaves cooked properly while larger loafs had a tendency to stay raw in the middle.

Check with toothpick. If you didn’t use the eggwash, then brush with melted butter or oil. This keeps the crust soft.
