For the dough:

  • 500 g plain flour

  • 1 bag of dry yeast

  • Melt the butter in a small saucepan and set it aside for now.

  • Then we replace it with a dough hook and add lukewarm milk and egg yolks. We start kneading for about 1 minute.
  • Add melted butter and knead for about 5-10 minutes so that the dough is perfectly elastic and separates from the walls of the container.
  • Take the dough out of the container and put it in a glass bowl, which we brush with oil. Cover with cling film and leave to rise in a warm place for 1 and 1/2 hours.
  • We then cut off small pieces of the dough, about 50 g, which we roll into rolls 20-25 cm long and about 1 cm thick.
  • We shape them as we like, for example into knots, snails and the like.
  • Place on a tray lined with baking paper, cover with a kitchen towel and leave to rise again for 30 minutes.
  • Then preheat the oven to 180 degrees. Mix the egg yolk with a spoonful of milk and brush each piece of dough.

Judas breads

Easter yudas is a festive specialty that must not be missed at Easter. They are shaped like a twisted rope symbolizing the hanging of Judas.


  • 60 g granulated sugar
  • 500 g plain flour
  • 300 ml cream 12%
  • 1 cube of yeast

  • Grated peel from one chemically untreated lemon
  • 2 teaspoons of lemon juice
  • 1 vanilla sugar
  • Pinch of salt
  • 1 egg for brushing
  • Honey for decoration


  • First, we prepare the leaven by putting 1 spoon of sugar, 1 spoon of flour, a little lukewarm cream and crushed yeast in a bowl.
  • We let it run out and in the meantime we take another bowl into which we put the remaining sugar and flour, egg yolks, softened butter, lemon zest and juice, vanilla sugar and salt.
  • Mix a little, add the prepared yeast and make a smooth dough. Knead for about 5 minutes so that it is pretty pliable.
  • Sprinkle with flour, leave the dough in the bowl and cover with a tea towel. Let it rise for about 1 – 1 and 1/2 hours.
  • Then preheat the oven to 180 degrees and prepare a baking sheet with baking paper.
  • Turn the dough out of the bowl, knead it once more and divide it into equally sized pieces.
  • We roll them into rolls about 25 cm long, roll them into a spiral shape and place them on a baking sheet. As soon as we have processed all the dough, let the dough rise on the baking sheet for another 15 minutes.
  • Then all you have to do is brush it with beaten egg and put it in the preheated oven for 25 minutes.
  • When serving, drizzle them with warm honey and you can also add whipped cream, but it is not necessary. Honey will make an excellent taste.

Soft brioche buns

Choosing the right recipe for Easter Yiddish is not easy, especially if we have our favorite. But there is nothing wrong with trying out a new newspaper every now and then, which is similar to what we do regularly, but still completely different in some way.


For the dough:

  • 500 g plain flour
  • 70 g of softened fresh unsalted butter
  • 2 large egg yolks (ideally from L-sized eggs)
  • 300 ml lukewarm whipping cream (35%)
  • 80 g of granulated sugar
  • 1 bag of instant dry yeast
  • 1/2 teaspoon of salt
  • 2 teaspoons of grated lemon peel from a chemically untreated lemon
  • 1 handful of raisins
  • 1 handful of blanched almond slices

For spreading:

  • 1 large egg
  • 2 tablespoons of lukewarm water

For the glaze:

  • 3 spoons of honey
  • 1 tablespoon fresh unsalted butter


  • We prepare the bowl of the food processor and carefully weigh all the ingredients, which we gradually put into it. We start with flour, then add sugar, lemon zest and salt.
  • Place on the base and using the kneading hook and mix quickly. Then add instant yeast, egg yolks and mix at low speed.
  • We will leave it on and slowly pour in lukewarm cream for whipping. The dough will be more crumbly at this stage, but don’t worry.
  • Add 1 tablespoon of softened butter and mix for about 5-10 minutes. Then we increase the speed and knead for about 5 minutes. The resulting dough must be elastic and must not stick to the bowl of the robot.
  • We reduce the speed of the robot to a minimum again and sprinkle the raisins with almonds. Mix for a few seconds.
  • Take the finished dough out of the container and knead it several times by hand on the work surface. Shape into a ball, place in a bowl and cover with a tea towel. Put it in a warm place and let it rest for 1 hour.
  • After an hour, take out the dough and divide it into 20 identical pieces. Roll each into a thin rope about 25 cm long and shape into the letter S.
  • Place everything on a tray lined with baking paper, cover with a tea towel and leave to rest for 20 minutes again.
  • Preheat the oven to 180 degrees and mix the eggs with water. Rub the dough with this and put it in the preheated oven. Bake until golden brown.
  • Finally, heat the honey and butter so that it bubbles slightly, but does not boil, and brush the still-hot baked buns with this glaze.
  • If you want, you can add sugar before serving or add a bowl with marmalade, in which the visitor can dip this delicacy.

Italian Easter bread

When we were already looking for interesting recipes for Easter yudas, we also honed in on Italian delicacies and discovered a recipe that is very similar to ours, with almost identical preparation and consistency of the dough. Why not try a sweet delicacy from another world cuisine for Easter.


For the dough:

  • 1 and 3/4 cup plain flour
  • Pinch of salt
  • Grated rind from 1 chemically untreated lemon
  • 2 and 1/2 tablespoons granulated sugar
  • 1/4 cup lukewarm milk
  • 1 bag of dry yeast
  • 2 eggs
  • 1/2 cup softened unsalted butter
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt

For spreading:

  • 1 egg
  • 1 tablespoon of lukewarm water

For the frosting:

  • Sugar decoration


  • Put flour, salt, lemon zest, sugar into the bowl of a food processor or stand mixer and make a well in the middle.
  • Crumble the yeast into it, add lukewarm milk and mix a little with a fork. Add the egg, put the kneading hook on the dough and turn it on for approx. 1 minute.
  • Cover the bowl with a plastic lid and let it rise for 2 hours, while every 30 minutes we fold the ends of the dough into the center. We repeat this a total of 4 times.
  • After two hours, add butter and start kneading the dough again at medium speed. Let it rest for 10 minutes again.
  • After this time, turn on the kneading again and let it work at medium speed for about 6 minutes, until the dough is smooth and does not stick to the walls of the bowl.
  • Take a glass bowl, grease it with oil, put the finished dough in it, cover it with cling film and put it in the fridge for 2 hours.
  • Then we flour the work surface and turn the dough out onto it. Divide into 8 parts and roll them all out like a rope to a length of 25-30 cm.
  • We always connect 2 ropes together at one end and twist one over the other until we connect the other two ends and form a circle/wreath out of them.
  • This is how we process the other pieces of dough. Place on a tray lined with baking paper, cover with a tea towel and leave to rise in a warm place for 2 hours.
  • Beat 1 egg with water, brush all the wreaths and sprinkle with sugar decoration.
  • Preheat the oven to 190 degrees and bake for 20 minutes until golden.
  • Remove the baked buns from the tray, place them on a kitchen rack and let them cool.

Interesting facts at the end

We use butter regularly in the kitchen. It is an indispensable ingredient especially for Christmas cookies, but of course it can also be used for other delicacies. But how is such butter actually produced? You can take a look at it in this interesting video.

Honey is also popular for baking. It has an excellent taste, a characteristic aroma and an amazing texture. We put it on bread and butter, as a topping for Easter cakes, but also as medicine in tea. Let’s see how it looks before the honey actually gets to us.
