1 tsp sugar
1 cup lukewarm water
1 pkg dry yeast
3 cups scalded milk (lukewarm)
14 to 15 cups flour
1/2 cup sugar
6 eggs beaten
1/2 cup melted butter
1 tbsp salt

Dissolve sugar in lukewarm water and sprinkle yeast over it. Let
stand for 10 mins.combine the yeast mixture with lukewarm milk and
5 cups of flour. beat well until smooth. cover and let the batter
rise in a warm place until light and bubbly. Add the beaten eggs,
sugar and melted butter and salt. mix thoroughly. Stir in enough
flour to make a dough that is neither too soft or stiff. Knead
until dough no longer sticks to the hands.

Turn the dough onto a floured board and knead until smooth and
satiny. Place in large bowl, cover and let rise in a warm place
until it doubles in bulk. Punch down, let rise again until double
in size.

Turn onto floured board and divide dough into 4 equal parts. This
makes 4 roundloaves.

They can be placed in large metal bowls that have been buttered
and floured for baking, or place two loaves on one large cookie
sheet. Put in a warm place to rise again till they are almost
double in size. Brush carefully with beaten eggg diluted with 2
tbsps of water. This is when the whole raw egg can be placed
carefully in the center of the loaf. Bake at 350F for about an
hour or until brown.

Notes: Some add white raisins to their paska, some braid their
dough into a long loaf and put an egg in the center.
