3. Mix everything until homogeneous.

4. Pour dry yeast into the warm mixture, stir, and leave in a warm place for 15-20 minutes. If the yeast starts to work - the mass should rise well. If necessary, you can add more 30%.

5. Pour boiling water over dried cranberries and raisins and let stand for 10-15 minutes, drain the liquid.

7. Mix everything well.

8. Set aside in a warm place for 40 minutes.

12. Divide the dough into 8 portions and place in the molds.

13. Place in a warm oven to rise (the temperature should not exceed 35 degrees so as not to kill the yeast). Leave for 3 hours.

14. In the process, wet the surface of the waistband with water so they don't dry out. The products should enlarge 3.5-4 times.

15. Bake at 165 degrees with convection for 40 minutes.

16. Cool the finished products.

19. Decorate the Easter cakes by dipping the tops in the glaze. Smooth them out with a spoon. Balls and dried berries can be used for decoration.
