Last year I posted a blog entry about hoska, and noted that I wasn't entirely satisfied with the results of my labors. Well, it's the Christmas season again, so I made another attempt, and I'm much more satisfied with the results. I used the exact same hoska recipe, but was a bit more generous with the candied pineapple and brushed the egg wash on a bit later in the baking process. The brethren love this bread and have suggested that I ought to make it year-round! That candied pineapple is expensive, so in July they may be getting it with golden raisins instead!
