Although Greek Easter is over, it’s not too late to present you the traditional Easter bread, called “tsoureki”. This delicious sweet bread is topped with almonds or sesame seeds, and usually includes a traditional red egg.
In Greece we always serve tsoureki with the Easter meal, but all the children try it with their cup of milk in breakfast. Its ingredients are: flour, yeast, butter, sugar, eggs, mahlepi (spice) or mastic, milk, sesame seeds or sliced almonds, hard boiled dyed red eggs.This bread is traditionally prepared with an essence drawn from the seeds of a Mediterranean spice, called mahlepi, which makes the kitchen smell delicious. Sometimes tsoureki is used as gifts for special occasion, for instance, it can be given as an Easter gift. Written by Teo, A3 class
