As I was invited to make a post as a guest blogger for the new german cooking portal Küchengötter about an easter bread (which is online now) I carried out research about breads celebrating easter in different countries. So I came upon Pinza or Pinze, a special bread found in parts of Germany, Austria and Slowenia.
The Pinza is typically cut into three sections. These tree parts stand for the Holy Trinity. Sometimes the Pinza is decorated with a red egg in the middle. By the way, the eggs in red and blue you can see in the pictures I bought from a Czech vendor at an easter egg market. The pattern is painted with white wax on dyed eggs.
Das Rezept für die Osterpinze auf Deutsch findet sich hier in meinem Brotkasten.
