Hi, Great recipe but this is not houska -- houska is a small braided, savory bread roll. The bread you've pictured here is called Vánočka (vanocka), which is a sweet, raisin, and almond topped, braided loaf similar to brioche and challah. It is found and eaten year long but it's not an Easter bread but rather a traditional Christmas bread. The name comes from the Czech and Slovak words for Christmas.
