    Paska - Easter Bread

    1/2 C butter
    1 C scalded milk
    1/2 tsp salt
    3/4 C sugar
    1 large yeast cake (1 envelope)
    4 eggs, well beaten
    5 C flour
    1/2 C seedless Raisins

    Add shortening to hot milk, then salt and sugar. Dissolve and cool to luckewarm. Add cumbled yeast, stir in eggs. Add flour and raisins and kneed well, about 20 minutes until smooth and elastic. Dough should be lighter than for bread. Let rise until double in bulk. Punch down and let rise again. After it has risen the second time, put dough on board and let rest for 10 minutes. Form into round loaf to fit a 2 quart greased round pan. Let rise for about 45 minutes or until double in size.

    Bake about 45 minutes at 350 degrees.

    We make this every year for Easter. I hope you enjoy it as much as my family does.
