Пасха 2019: Праздничный кулич от Веры Борсук (рецепт)

“I love to cook! Really be happier when you find the time for cooking experiments, especially love to bake – recognized Faith Borsuk. – The love of baking with my childhood. As a child I often helped my grandmother and mother with the cooking: the dough is kneaded, molded from a pies, biscuits, bagels… Now, if I go to visit, always with something sweet, and personally prepared. To Easters will definitely bake a cake, the recipe of which remained from my great grandmother and passed down from generation to generation. Cakes will come out much sooner after preparing for the whole family. And the families were large”.


  • Yeast: 150 grams
  • Eggs: 20 pieces
  • Butter: 500 grams
  • Margarine: 200 grams
  • Sour cream: 500 grams
  • Sunflower oil: 200 grams
  • Milk: 1 liter
  • Sugar: 5 cups
  • Vanilla
  • Raisins

Important: all ingredients should be at room temperature!


Yeast sprinkle 1 tablespoon of sugar and 2 tablespoons flour. As soon as the yeast went to add them to the milk. And knead the dough with a flour – like pancakes. Wait until the dough will do. Meanwhile, whisk eggs with sugar and vanilla. Butter and margarine melt a bit and mix with sour cream. In the dough pour in the beaten eggs with sugar, oil and sour cream – well-kneaded flour, sunflower oil and raisin. It is important that the dough is so light and airy. It is desirable that the dough came several times. Mix again and let suitable. Ideally, if the dough is to stand 6 hours. Form my great-grandmother always smeared with lard, if it is not – with sunflower oil.

Fill out forms test need only 1/3. After the dough rise, put the shapes into the oven and bake for 15-20 minutes. The most fragrant cake in the world is ready. For me he will always be the most delicious!

By the way, if you don’t like, beat egg whites with sugar, you can make a secret glaze that does not crumble and does not crumble.

The ingredients for the glaze:

  • Sugar – 1 Cup
  • Gelatin – 1 teaspoon
  • Water – 6 tablespoons
  • Lemon juice – a few drops

Gelatin pour two tablespoons of water and leave to swell. Sugar pour the remaining 4 tablespoons of water, put on fire, bring to a boil and cook until the sugar is dissolved. Remove from heat, add gelatin, stir. Then whisk the mass with a mixer for 4-5 minutes, until they are white. Add to the mix a couple drops of lemon or orange juice, stir for 30 seconds and spread the cake a creamy and delicious frosting. Store-bought dressing I try not to use – there are many synthetic dyes. Cakes decorated with raisins, cocoa (through a stencil), chocolate chips.

Bon appetit!
