This is sweet, aromatic bread, similar to Brioche or Jewish Challa. A bit of an undertaking, my sisters and I would be roped into making this during Holy Week. My mother came up with the inspired idea of proving the dough, in bowls, tightly wrapped in quilts, inside our beds with the electric blankets on. We'd crawl into our beds at night, exhausted and bone-weary from kneading, and the sheets would smell of the mahlepi used to flavour the bread.
