PENZA, November 21. /TASS/. A record-breaking 413-kilogram karavai, a traditional round bread loaf symbolising prosperity and fertility, has been baked in the Penza Region, central Russia, the chief judge of the Russian committee for the planet's records said on Friday.
The karavai decorated with dough figurines of horses and sunflowers is 1.35 meter tall and 1.5 wide. It took bakers eight days, 300 kilograms of flour, 300 eggs and ten liters of oil to make the huge loaf for a local agricultural festival.
The previous karabai-baking record was registered in Pyatigorsk, southern Russia, where a 243-kilogram loaf was baked in 2010.
For centuries, the karavai has been used at Russian weddings and housewarming ceremonies.
