Velikonocni Kruhki - Easter Sweet Rolls

These slightly sweet yeast rolls are blessed on Holy Saturday in the traditional Easter basket and are served up on Easter morning. I am sorry that the name is a mouth full but you will be glad to eat them. Velikonocni means Easter and Kruhki means small breads. It is surprising to note that these Easter rolls are traditionally egg free as well.

They were a delightful addition to a potluck party. So V for Velikonocni Kruhki from Slovenia.

*Butter, melted 3 Tbsp
Olive Oil 4 Tbsp 
Salt 1 tsp
Almond meal 3/4 cup

Velikonocni Kruhki - Easter Sweet Rolls

Method Of Preparation -

In a bowl of warm milk add sugar and yeast and set aside for the yeast to get activated.

In the stand mixer bowl, add the flour, salt, almond meal, powdered sugar, cardamom powder, butter, oil, lemon juice and zest. Whisk well.

Slowly add the yeast milk mixture and gradually add the water used to soak the raisins.

When the dough is more or less kneaded, add in the citrus peel, tutti fruti and drained raisins and knead until the dough is soft and pliable.

Set aside the dough in an oiled bowl covered with cling wrap for about 2 hours or until the dough doubles.

Knead the doubled dough on a clean floured surface and divide the dough into 30 equal portions. [I made smaller portions so I get more rolls.]

Roll each portion in the shape of a dinner roll. Arrange the rolls on a lined baking tray. Cover and set aside while the oven is preheated to 350 °F.

Bake in the center rack for about 35 minutes or until the rols turn golden brown.

Remove and allow them to cool. Serve with butter or jam. We enjoyed them just as they were, just mildly sweet with a hint of citrus and raisins/tutti fruti in every bite. Bliss!!
