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!
We start with a favorite place of ours, namely - Stenata. We dedicated a separate text to their fragrant and tempting Easter breads a year ago and we still think that you won’t regret any of the three tastes. Easter biscuits are also a perfect addition to the meal and are preferred by young and old.
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 get organized and order more of the sweet temptation in 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. You can certainly experiment, but be sure to order a few pieces of his delicious creations to compare and taste at will.
By 10.04 they are also collecting requests from Gourmet Tepe, which have prepared us an enticing list of irresistible temptations. With orange peels, blueberries, and raisins, or with Turkish delight, their homemade Easter bread is a great choice for celebrating the holiday.
The family bakery next to Thursday Market - Don Baton is our next choice. They are well known for the taste of their exquisitely prepared Easter bread. The taste of their pastry with chocolate is great, and you can find their phone number on their Facebook page.
Tart Bakery is another place that will contribute to the delicious meal of the Christian holiday. They have been accepting orders since the end of March, and their Easter bread with yeast is amazing. You can choose from flavors such as chocolate, raisins and orange peel and Amarena cherries with white chocolate. They will work at both locations (in Kuchuk Paris and next to the Central Post Office), as well as on all holidays.
