Easter Pasha (S)

Calling all Nordics! THM'fied Pasha is here! Okay, a day late -but it's here! You got like 2 days to make this, devour it and call it Easter. This is the ultimate Easter dessert! Well, at least in Finland. Here we go,

You'll need

  • 1.5 sticks of butter
  • 2/3C Gentle Sweet
  • 1 egg
  • 2 1/4C Greek Yoghurt/Qwark
  • 3/4C whipping/heavy cream
  • 2-4T sultanas/diced apricots (if you don't mind going over to the XO'r, then don't shy away)
  • 4T almond slices or slivers
  • juice of 1 lemon (I also added a few drops of doTERRA Wild Orange Essential Oil)
  • zest of 1 lemon
  • 1-2t vanilla extract
  • fine mesh sieve or bonus points if you have the traditional "pasha mold". (I obviously didn't!)
  • muslin/cheese cloth

  1. Whisk together butter and Gentle Sweet. 
  2. Add egg, yoghurt and cream. Whisk for 1 or 2 more minutes. 
  3. Pour into a pot and turn the stove to medium LOW -do not boil!
  4. Heat and keep stirring until the mixture loosens up and begins to steam. Make sure you don't simmer or boil, else it will separate. This process usually takes about 5 minutes. 
  5. Zest the lemon in and add the vanilla extract. Let the mixture cool an hour or 2.
  6. Add the almonds, sultanas and lemon juice. 
  7. Line the sieve with the cheese cloth/muslin, and pour the mixture in. Cover it gently with the cloth and rest the sieve in a large bowl. Place the bowl into the fridge over night and unravel the next day. 
  8. Flip onto a serving plate and decorate with fresh berries or more sultanas. I used dried apricots. 

So this is my "little bit of Finland" during every Easter. I have let go of many traditions to save my sanity, but this is something I can easily keep and my family doesn't mind at all.

I brought this dish over to our friends today and within minutes this dessert was devoured and the plate licked, if I hadn't interfered. Ha!

Let me know what you think if you do decide to give it a go :) Oh, and some of you might notice the spelling differs from what you're used to or may disagree with the origin of Pasha... who cares! More power to you! It's a yummy dish, am I right or am I right?
