Cozonac. A Romanian sweet bread eaten at Easter and Christmas (or in my case, January). I thought this was going to be quite an undertaking when I looked at the recipe, and to be fair, it kind of was, but it was also great. It tastes just wonderful, the mix of chocolate and citrus, with a small punch of rum for good measure.
The recipe I used (linked here, because I’m not going to copy it out below) was supposed to yield two loaves, but being myself I thought I would “save time” and just make one mega-loaf. I cannot recommend doing this. The cooking time more than doubled, so I was hanging around my oven checking it for way over 2 hours. The density of dough and filling made it difficult to discern when it was actually cooked, and so I probably overdid it a little. Nevertheless, it was worth the wait.
