Mazanec is a traditional bread made in Czech Republic for Easter. A large, firm, crusty yeast-based bread, Mazenec is usually enjoyed for breakfast either plain or with fruit jam and/or butter. It is lightly sweetened, and includes subtle hints of vanilla and lemon, with rum soaked raisins and almonds, throughout.
Ever since I was a kid, I loved to bake. My passion for culinary arts and nutrition definitely stem from my love of creativity in the kitchen. I have had this recipe written down on a looseleaf sheet of paper for as long as I remember. It’s my go-to for breakfast, dessert, or holiday gatherings. The healthy swaps like whole wheat flour and egg whites, as well as the use of real bananas are what make this recipe wonderful!
