Crescia, Umbria Easter Cheese Bread Recipe
Slightly warm the milk and dissolve the yeast in the liquid.
Leave for a few moments, then slowly add the flour which has been mixed with the sugar followed by the beaten eggs and a little salt.
Knead the mixture for at least 15 minutes to create a smooth, elastic dough.
At this point add the butter in pieces.
Knead again then leave the dough in a warm place for at least two hours.
Return to the bread mixture and work it again adding the lard and both cheeses.
Place in a suitable bread oven tray and leave for a further hour.
Now it is finally ready to cook in a pre-heated oven at 200°c for around an hour.
