Easter baking

These are what I'm calling Easter Morning Muffins, and they're going in the freezer to save for our church's annual bring-your-baking-before-church event this Sunday. Also known in MB circles as the Paska Party.

What's in them, besides sprinkles? Basic muffin batter, white chocolate chips, one banana, and a spoonful of raspberry jam.

(This is Paska. I don't make Paska.)

I am fascinated to read that paska is also Mennonite. It's very Russian/Ukrainian/Orthodox.

It goes back to those who came from the Ukrainian Mennonite colonies in the late 19th century, partly in the early 20th. They have a language, food traditions etc. that are quite different from the Swiss-German Mennonites who came to this area a hundred years before that. Many of the older people at our church have their roots in the Ukraine.
