New Years Cake (Vasilopita)

Ingredients:
1 kilo self-rising flour
2 cups of butter
1 tablespoon fresh yeast
1 cup sugar
1 cup milk
6 eggs
Salt
Mahlepi
Caster sugar
Blanched almonds

Instructions:
Mix the yeast with the warm milk and a bit of flour to become porridge. Cover the porridge and leave it in a warm place to rise. Boil the mahlepi in some water and strain. Discard the mahlepi and keep the water. In a bowl put the flour, make a small hole and pour in it the melted butter, the sugar, the beaten eggs, the yeast slurry the water from the mahlepi and little salt. Knead well until the dough firms up. Put it in a floured bowl. Leave the dough covered in a warm place to rise. Knead again and mold the pie. Place it in a baking pan greased and floured. Sprinkle the surface with almonds and if you like you can write the number of the New Year using the almonds. Let it rise again and carefully brush with beaten egg. Bake in a moderate oven for about one hour. When it is cool, sprinkle around it with the powdered caster sugar.
