Traditional Easter Kulich

Bake something traditional this Easter with this fun kulich recipe!


  • Wash and dry six tin cans, butter the tins and line with baking powder. Sieve the flour, salt, mixed spice and cinnamon into a mixing bowl, rub in the butter and make a well in the centre for the sugar and yeast. Add the beaten egg and milk then mix together to form a dough.

  • On a clean work surface lightly dusted with flour, work the mixed dried fruit and peel, knead until smooth and elastic. Shape the dough into a bowl, place in a buttered mixing bowl, cover and leave for 1 hour in a warm place.

  • On a work surface, knock back the dough, divide into 6 equal parts, roll each into a ball, roll into a cylinder shape and place in the prepared tins. Cover and leave for half an hour.

  • Preheat the oven to 240C, bake for 35 minutes or until golden brown and turn out of the tins and leave to cool.

  • Mix the icing sugar and lemon juice together until thick. Spoon on top of the kulich buns and top with fruit and nuts.
