Recipe for easy and delicious tsourekia

The buns need time to succeed, so don’t rush.

Ingredients for 8-10 buns

2,800g flour

8 whole eggs + 2 yolks

2 cups milk

1k sugar

1/2 kg margarine

1 cup seed oil

2 teaspoons salt

3 vanillas

2 orange juice and orange zest

8 g of mahalepi or 1 sachet

8 g of kakoule or 1 sachet

For the beer yeast porridge


200g fresh yeast

1 cup lukewarm water or milk


Step 1. Dissolve the yeast with warm water or milk and slowly add 1 cup of flour. Mix the dough with a whisk and cover for 1 hour.

Step 2. Take a large bowl and put in the flour, make a puddle in the middle and add the vanilla, salt, mahalepi, kakoule and zest with the oranges.

Step 3. Beat the eggs with the sugar well in the mixer and gradually add the orange juice.

Step 4. In a saucepan melt the margarine together with our oil or you can melt butter

Step 5. Heat the milk on its own as long as our hands can withstand it

Step 6. Now we will pour in the bowl with the flour, the yeast, after the mixture with the milk, the milk is lukewarm and from the pot with the margarine or oil a little more than half.

Step 7. Knead well in a circle and always from the inside out

Step 8. At the end, add the rest of the margarine with the oil from the saucepan and continue the kneading.

Step 9. Cover with a grease sheet and wrap our basin with a bag and put a blanket on top. Leave the dough for 2 hours to rise.

Step 10. Open, knead again and let it rise for another 1 hour.

Step 11. We knit the buns with whatever design we want and let them rise in a warm place for about 30 minutes.

Step 12. Beat 1 egg with 1 teaspoon of nun’s milk and spread on our buns. Pour almonds or sesame seeds on top

Step 13. Bake at 170c, in the air , until it’s golden-brown for about 35-45 minutes depending on the design we want to create.

Where to watch out for

If we want to see if our buns are baked, we pierce them with a skewer stick.

When we take the buns out of the oven, it is good to wrap them with a transparent film after 15 minutes, so they will be kept fluffy.

You can also make beer yeast porridge with milk instead of water.

Good luck!!
