Very Best Baking | Prescription Drug Information, Interactions & Side Effects Recipe for Yeast cake and some Easter traditions | Most cultures which celebrate Easter, have a type of yeast cake, yeast plait or hot cross bun to symoblise the rising of Christ on Easter Sunday. Greek orthodox families celebrate Easter with Tsoureki, Traditonal Greek Easter Bread, and I found this fantastic site called CDKitchen which has recipes for a large range of traditional Easter breads from different countries. Other traditions The blessing of yeast cakes at church on Easter Sunday is a tradition also followed by many Christians, and here is an artwork kindly shared by a friend, the wonderful artist Andrey Lyssenko, titled “Consecration of Easter Cakes. 80/70 cm. oil/canvas. 2010.” Consecration of Easter Cakes. 80/70 cm. oil/canvas. 2010. Andrey’s paintings are always full of life and colour. One of the cakes I bake at Easter is a kulich, here is my photo…I know it is not in the correct tin (so please do not tell me off for this!!!)
