Kozunak (Easter bread) is a sweet ritual bread that symbolizes the body of Jesus Christ. It is traditionally prepared and consumed on Easter. In Bulgaria, it was established relatively late, only in the period 1915–1920. Until then, other breads, called kolak, parmak, kravay, were kneaded for the holiday.
It is said that the history of its preparation began in the early 17th century in France, from where it gradually spread throughout Europe. In Russia, Easter rite bread is called kulich, and in Italy, panettone.
To date, it can be said that the Easter bread is no longer just a religious symbol, it has become a food item, a kind of pastry that can be found in stores throughout the year.
Any housewife who has made it knows that it is difficult to prepare and requires a lot of time, kneading and some special skills. Therefore, the team of the only digital guide under the hills has selected for you several tried and tested places from which you can buy it prepared perfectly. We guarantee it will be aromatic, fluffy and incredibly tasty, and the Easter meal - richer!
Bakery Art has been in the pastry market for more than a decade, but they continue to work and develop in the direction of increasingly appetizing specialties. Over the years, employees have even witnessed a battle for Easter bread from ladies who failed to enroll in the long list of people around the Easter holidays. Therefore, we advise you to organize yourself and order more of the sweet temptation in time. The waiting list is already being filled and they’ll be giving it by the hour so that there isn’t clustering of many people at one time.
You won't be disappointed by the Master's Bakery either. Georgi Lefterov, in one of his social media posts, even gave the recipe and showed clearly how to make Easter bread at home.
