I made this kuglof for the occasion of slava / nameday of my father Pande (Panteleimon) which fell in Friday and was a fasting day. It is made very quickly and tastes delicious. I literally had only 1 hour to make all preparations for the dough and to prepare myself for going.

  • 1 cube of yeast
  • 50 ml of warm water
  • 1 tsp sugar
  • 300 g flour
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 3 tablespoons chopped olives
  • 100 ml of carbonated water
  • 1/4 teaspoon dried parsley
  • 1/4 tsp oregano
  • 2 tablespoons oil and 1 tbsp for kneading
  • 3 tablespoons sesame seeds
  • 2 tablespoons of pumpkin seeds
  • a little melted margarine to coat the mold and top
  1. Put the yeast in lukewarm water with sugar and just mix it to dissolve, it should not be activated.
  2. Then add the other ingredients and mix well.
  3. Sprinkle the palm with 1 tbs oil and knead the dough briefly.
  4. Transfer the dough into the mold pre-lined with margarine, spread it well, apply melted margarine on top and leave it in a warm place to double the volume.
  5. Once risen, set it to bake at 180 C degrees for half an hour.
  6. Remove and cover with a towel after baking and remove from the mold after 10 minutes.
