The baked bread was sanctified and it was distributed among the celebrants. Another bread of similar size and composition was sent in the morning in Transylvania, Romania, with the occasion of “Cluj Hungarian Days”. It took about six and a half hours at 430 degrees Celsius to bake the bread. Therefore a thick burned crust was formed, which after a few minutes of cooling it was removed with a specially crafted scraper.
