Hello everyone!! merry christmas and happy new year!!!
I need a recipe for vasilopita. I have my mom´s recipe, but unfortunetly very far from where I am now...............
the ones I found on the web are very heavy, mine results in a bread very similar to Panettone, maybe a bit heavier.
So does anyone have a recipe? I haven´t been able to find mahlepi, but hope to find it soon.

Here's a place you might order mahlepi:
And a recipe for Vasilopita:
Makes 1 - 8x8 inch pan (8 servings).
1/2 cup warm milk
1 (.25 ounce) package active
1/2 cup bread flour
6 cups bread flour
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup white sugar
1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon ground nutmeg
3/4 cup butter, melted
2 cups warm milk
2 tablespoons butter, melted
1 egg, beaten
1/2 cup chopped almonds
1 In a small bowl, stir together 1/2 cup milk, yeast and
1/2 cup flour. Cover and let rise in a warm place until
nearly doubled in size, about 1 hour.
2 Place 6 cups flour in a large bowl. Make a well in the
center and add salt, sugar, cinnamon, nutmeg, 3/4 cup melted
butter, 3 eggs and milk. Mix thoroughly to make a thick dough.
3 Scoop the dough into a lightly greased 8x8 inch baking
pan. Brush dough with melted butter, cover and let rise in
a warm place until doubled in size, about 30 minutes.
4 Preheat oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C).
5 When dough has risen, insert a clean silver coin into
the loaf. Brush dough with beaten egg and sprinkle with
chopped almonds. Bake in preheated oven until golden brown,
about 40 minutes.
