Lambrokouloura

Lambropsomo and lambrokouloura are traditional Easter breads adorned with red-dyed eggs, made with unique aromatic essences, and baked on Good Thursday or Good Saturday night.

Lambropsomo (‘Easter bread’) or lambrokouloura (‘Easter bread-rolls’) is the traditional festive bread decorated with red-dyed hardboiled eggs and prepared on Good Thursday or Good Saturday on the night of the Resurrection.

The lambrokouloura can be made exactly like daily bread or maybe sweetened with various aromatic essences, as is also case with the tsoureki bun. The addition of these aromatic essences is what makes it different from ordinary bread. Its special shape, with hardboiled eggs as decoration, is what makes it distinctive.
