The most difficult part of this recipe is that it requires a whole blended orange and lemon, and I have no blender. But luckily, it was my awesome brother and sister-in-law Shalyn who came to my rescue and volunteered their Magic Bullet for this endeavour! They even provided me with a container to bring home my orange-lemon sludge once I had sufficiently pureed it. Now that is what family is for, I tell ya. Always there for you in your hour of most dire procrastinatory-baking need.
Behold, here is my Paska dough, ready to enter the fiery furnace! I stole the idea of adding embellishments to the top from a Ukrainian Paska website.
And here is the finished product, right out of the oven and ready for noms! Those Mennonites would be proud. Incidentally, this recipe is huuuge. I had another whole loaf besides this one. Good thing there were lots of people to help eat this up!
Next week is exams. Bleh. But the Langley Knit Night Secret Grinch Swap is coming up, which will be my one scheduled break before exams (no more baking, I swear!), and well worth waiting for. I can't wait for the unveiling of the secret knitted items =D Stay tuned!
