The dough is enriched with butter, milk, sugar, eggs and mixed peel. Some people add wine or ouzo to the dough for an even more flavoursome loaf. The traditional practice when making this bread is to knead all of your hopes, aspirations and intentions for the new year into the dough and to spend the time it takes to ferment and rise, contemplating the year just gone. Baking it and sharing it with your nearest and dearest ensures that your hopes for the new year come to fruition. Some people decorate the loaf with personal symbols or motifs made from extra dough. Here is the recipe: christopsomo
