Tsoureki is a Greek braided bread traditionally eaten on Easter. A sweet holiday dough made with flour, milk, butter and sugar and seasoned with lemon zest, and anise seed. It is customary to place dyed red eggs in between the braid to crown this traditional bread.
Nothing is better than a freshly baked bread, the smell and the tastes from this particular recipe really are something special.
To make Tsoureki (Traditional Greek Easter Bread), you will need the following ingredients:
Steps to make Tsoureki
Combine dry ingredients
Add wet ingredients
Add dyed eggs
Preheat the oven to 350 °F.
Swap the normal milk for almond milk if you want a better flavor/texture.
So I made this for my brothers gf on her bday cause shes greek and this apparently reminded her of home to the point she was crying of joy lol the taste is just right and you can change the flavors a bit with some cinnamon too.
Rating it a 5 because of texture its soft on the inside but kinda hard on the outside.
Dodged the lemon zest cause i dont like zesty things and lemon aftertaste isnt good.
The Easter meals are top tier i tried the easter bunny breads too and if you combine the two recipes its perfection.
I think Greek recipes are a little hard to make compared to everything else but its not too bad just takes some extra time
Easily one of the top recipes on here and this goes well no matter what holiday it is no need to wait till easter.
Replaced the brown sugar with cane white taste a lot sweeter.
My kids favorite bread to eat every easter though i dont keep it vegetarian for them and actually added some chocolate chips to it.
1 hour was not enough to bake it needed atleast 2.
Wasn't too sure about this easter bread up until i tried it tonight and dipped it into some caramel!
Love this website and all it has to offer.
Braiding the bread was way too difficult so i just made a loaf then decorated it with peeps on the top.
Best tsoureki bread ive ever had gonna try out the banana vegan bread next.
Drizzle some honey on the top of this and thank me later ;)
Lily is the top freaking chief in the planet! Thx for the creative meals.
