I have no clue exactly where this comes from. We got the recipe from our priest, who asked us to make loaves for church. It's a dense sweet bread only made for Bright Week as far as I know. I've made it for serving with soup too.

Hey buddy, your link is misspelled or something. Get an error message everytime I try to go there, no matter what search engine. Give it a check.

Danged if I know. It works on both PCs here. Try this

Here's the recipe direct.  I'll add the photo later.

2 cups Chickpea Flour

4 cups Whole Wheat Flour

10 cups unbleached Flour

3 Tbsp yeast

2.5 cups sugar

1 cup Olive oil

1 tbsp rose water

6 cups water'

 

Add yeast to 1/2 cup of water and add 1 Tbsp sugar. Let sit until foaming. Mix everything together in one large bowl and add flour to adjust texture so you have a firm dough. Knead until elastic, about 15 minutes. Let rise 2-4 hours so it doubles in volume. Divide into 8 loaves and make into balls. Put balls on a greased sheet and preheat oven to 350 for 20 minutes. Add decorations with white dough below if desired. Bake at  350 for 40-50 minutes or until 190 F internal temperature until it sounds hollow when tapped on the bottom.

 

Decoration dough:  We normally decorate the loaves with crosses, wheat heads, etc made out of it. Some people do grape leaves and stuff but I ain't that clever.

 

4 cups bleached flour

1/4 clear vegetable oil

Water as needed

 

Make a stiff dough and roll out to about 1/16" thick between pieces of waxed paper (greased). Cut out designs and attach to dough using water to help adhere. BTW, You can cut it down but since we make it for church we make 10 loaves. Cut down to 2 loaves its a good bread for home use.

Okay, yes, that linked woked...real nice loaves- great color! I'd like to make them but that recipe makes a lot of bread, as you pointed out. If I just across-the-board reduced the recipe by 3/4 would it come out okay?

I think so. I cut it back to 2 loaves without a problem.
