    Moc dobrý. Na druhé kynutí jsem těsto jen 3 krat preložil, udělal kouli a na plech kde jsem prostředek promacknul hloub než okraje. Žloutek, mandle 35 minute kynout a do trouby…nepukly a jsou vynikající.

    Hi Kristýna,
    I know elsewhere on this site, you said you have converted the recipes to US measures, but I live in the UK and would love to have the metric measures (grams etc) for this recipe if that is at all possible.

    Also, could I use beard flour in this recipe, instead of All Purpose?

    Kind Regards,
    Dave Thompson

    Drahá Kristýno,

    že já si na Vás vzpomněla až po dvou neúspěšných pokusech!!
    Na třetí pokus – podle Vašeho videa a instrukcí – se mi ovšem podařily dva krásné zlatavé mazance.
    Díky a držím palce.
    Krásné velikonoce,

    Martina

    Bread flour will definitely work, however, for a sweet bread, a.p. flour will give a lighter texture to the bread. Also, keep the dough a little sticky, using only enough “bench flour” to manage shaping the dough.

    Thank you, Kristýna, for this recipe and for all your wonderful tutorials. I am fifth generation Czech-American, and made Easter bread for the first time this weekend as a way to share my Czech heritage with my in-laws and maybe start a new tradition for my family. It was delicious and everyone enjoyed it.

      That makes me so happy to hear you are thinking of starting new tradition of making Mazanec. 🙂 Glad you all enjoyed it. 🙂
