This gorgeous Russian Easter bread, or kulich, is a sweet, yeast-risen bread flavoured with raisins and cranberries. A cross between brioche and challah, this bread (called kulich) is a lightly sweetened, egg-glazed cylinder, often baked in special moulds. Paska (паска) bread or Kulich (кулич) bread is a Russian and Ukrainian festive bread baked at Easter, and is traditionally eaten only on Easter Sunday. The kulich would sit proudly in the center of the family Easter basket, surrounded by meats, cheeses, butter, and eggs. It's a central part of the Easter meal.
This sweet bread has 2 names, it’s called Paska in the southern Russia and Ukraine but it’s called Kulich in central Russia and the rest of Russia. This is not to be confused with another festive Easter dish called Paskha (Пасха), which is made with tvorog (farmer’s cheese). As easy as it may sound and look, rising is the most time consuming part of the making. Since this is a “sweet” bread the sugar and yolks weigh down the rising process, making the rising time go by very slow (even if it’s rising in a very warm place). But don’t fret it’s all worth the labor if you want extremely fluffy results.

Then add yeast and mix everything again. Cover with damp towel and leave in a warm place to prove and raise for about 2-3 hours.
Step 2: After first raise, place the dough into the stand mixer and add the rest of the flour. Then add raisins and cranberries and mix everything again. The dough shouldn't be too sticky. Prove the dough for 2 more hours in a warm place.

Кулич — самая традиционная Пасхальная выпечка. Я всегда пеку свои куличи по этому рецепту. Кулич получается воздушный, ароматный и долго не черствеет. Этот рецепт для меня проверенный. Тесто должно быть довольно густо, чтобы совершенно не приставало к столу. Когда тесто хорошо поднимется, то начать разваливать его и в то же время затопить печь. Никак не нужно спешить сажать куличи, пока они не поднимутся, что бывает иногда довольно долго, тогда как тесто густое трудно поднимается.Обещаю, что ничего вкуснее на свете не существует.
