Christopsomo - Greek Christmas Bread.

Traditionally on Christmas Eve every household would bake a Christopsomo or "Christ bread".

  • 1 package active dry yeast.
  • 1/4 cup warm water.
  • 1/3 cup sugar.
  • 1 tsp ground cardamom seeds (seeds removed from the exterior husk).
  • 1/4 tsp salt.
  • 1 egg.
  • 1/4 cup milk.
  • 1 tsp salt.
  • 1/4 cup melted butter.
  • 1 and 1/2 cups whole wheat flour.
  • 1 cup all purpose flour.
  • 1/4 cup golden raisins.
  • 1/4 cup chopped walnuts.

  • Grease an 8-inch circular cake pan.
  • Dissolve the yeast in the warm water and allow to stand for a few minutes.
  • Meanwhile, combine the sugar, salt, egg, milk, cardamom and butter in a large bowl and mix well.
  • Add the yeast mixture, both types of flour, raisins and the walnuts.
  • Mix well. If the dough is too moist, add a little all purpose flour to make softer dough.
  • Turn the dough out onto a floured surface and knead by hand until it is smooth and elastic, about 5 minutes.
  • Shape into a round loaf.
  • Place the dough into the cake pan, cover with a towel and allow to rise in a warm place until doubled in volume. Meanwhile, preheat the oven to 350.
  • When risen, bake the loaf for 35 to 40 minutes or until brown and it sounds hollow when tapped on the bottom.
