What is Easter?

Easter, Pascha or Resurrection Sunday - a celebration with many names. But what is Easter exactly and why do we celebrate it?

Easter starts on the first full Sunday after the spring solstice - on the 4th of April. It commemorates the resurrection of Jesus Christ after the crucifixion. At the same time, there is a swing festival or spring holiday for the superstitious to celebrate the rebirth of spring!

Celebrating Easter...

It’s a tradition to paint eggs, gift them and tap them - the one whose egg survives is the winner. There are various explanations for the origin of the practice of painting eggs, but it’s probably related to the end of fasting and fertility magic.

During the Easter holidays, children are told about an Easter bunny who hides eggs or sweets in houses or gardens at night. Nowadays, chocolate eggs and rabbits are popular during the holidays.

PASHKA RECIPE

Our absolute favourite recipe for Easter is a delicious Pashka! The best thing about a Pashka recipe is that you can make it either baked or unbaked. We will be sharing our unbaked version.

You will need:

  • 100g butter
  • 1dl sugar
  • 1 egg, if desired
  • 600g of curd
  • 1-2 tablespoons lemon juice
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla sugar
  • pistachios
  • 2 dl of 35% fresh cream
  • 100g of milk chocolate
  • gauze (eg from a pharmacy)
  • almond chips (about 50g)
  • 1 almond of luck in the cake (whoever finds it, gets "luck" all year round)
Pashka cake

PREPARATION:

  1. Take a large bowl and whisk the butter and sugar.
  2. In another bowl, whip the cream.
  3. Add curd, lemon juice, grated lemon zest, (egg if desired), melted and chopped milk chocolate, almond chips, and pistachios to the whipped butter and sugar.
  4. Slowly add the cream to the rest of the ingredients
  5. Place the mixture in a special gauze-lined pasha mold or sieve to drain.

It is best to leave the cake in the fridge for 24 hours! The next day, fold the pasha on a platter, remove the gauze and decorate with whatever you want.
