Buona pasqua 2014 - Making sgute

Another Easter at La tavola.  Instead of providing the supporting cast of Easter goodies this year, we are making the main event, the sweet Paschal bread: sgute.  Easter sguta has long been a Calabrese tradition and Nonna makes then every year.  This year, she won't be baking but, thankfully, is still with us and recouperating remarkably after having an accident a little over a month ago.  We are counting our blessings. 

So, with a small, worn piece of paper from an old recipe box, a mountain of eggs and sweet dough that has taken all night to rise.. I'm up to my elbows and running out of places to set the large trays of proofing egg breads..

I'll let you know how it goes.  Two more recipes for variations here, with a video.

Buona Pasqua a tutti.
