Paska ... Easter Buns

Paska ... Easter Buns

Love this recipe..My mom used to bake them in coffee tins...they were so yummy!

It's Easter again and who can resist a paska bun???

In a blender combine-
1 lemon and orange (whole fruit cut up and seeded)
3/4 c butter
5 eggs
1 c warm water
Blend well until mixed and pureed
In bowl add:
1 tsp salt
4 c flour..recipe uses 8-10 c flour
2 1/2 tbsp yeast
1 1/2 c hot water
1 1/2 c sugar

Mix and add liquid ingredients. Add 4 c more flour. Add more if dough is very sticky..(I used 10 cups) Put in a greased bowl and cover and let rise 1 hr. in a warm place. Do not punch down. Form buns and put on pan and let rise 1 hr. Bake 350* until golden brown.

I think you may have had to use a lot of extra flour because the total amount of water in the recipe is a bit much. You may want to cut it by half. Just my observation from how wet the recipe seemed when I tried it out.

Hi Sohan, I wonder if perhaps the flour you used could have made a difference. It is different in different countries ... not sure where you live. This recipe's been made this way in Canada and the USA using about the 10 cups as Susan mentions in the recipe. How much flour did you have to use?

This looks delicious! How do you pronounce Paska in German? I'm just starting to learn and want to say it correctly. Danke!

The way my mom did it.

My mom always made these in clean empty cans from corn, coffee. I imagine you could do the same with these.
Can't remember her using fruit in it though.

I used store bought vanilla icing...mixed in a bit of lemon or orange juice...or use just as is

What do you use for the icing?


Thanks for posting my recipe...yes you use the whole fruit...

Sounds so-o-o good!
by: Gerhild

Susan, this recipe sounds so easy and so good. I love the idea of using a blender to prepare the fruits and the first part of the recipe.

Is it right by what I understand? You put the whole fruit in there, everything except the seed? The peel as well? Including the white part under the peel?

Usually only the zest part is added, but if here, all except the seeds, then that's surely quick.

The picture you included looks so yummy. Thanks for submitting this contest entry!

Thinking of starting your own Handmade Business?

Oma Gerhild Fulson

This Oma KNOWS you CAN do it.

How do I know?

Well, if I can do it, anyone can.

I've even figured out how I can help you.

I've teamed up with my own business coach, Renae Christine (yes, do google her!), to bring you this free masterclass. After you watch it, ask me any questions and I'll gladly answer them.

Don't hesitate. I'm not sure how long Renae will keep this free masterclass available.

Thinking of starting a handmade business. I've got a FREE workshop from my coach right here.

PS:  Yes, Renae really is as amazing as all the reviews say.

PPS: Yes, the course is for handmade items, but I've used it successfully for my cookbooks. I know others are using her methods for services, direct sales, and even a local ice cream bar & grill that's constantly selling out. You've nothing to lose by taking a look ... and a whole bunch to gain.
