The Daring Baker’s October 2011 challenge was Povitica, hosted by Jenni of The Gingered Whisk. Povitica is a traditional Eastern European Dessert Bread that is as lovely to look at as it is to eat!
I was excited to learn how to make Potica, which is what we have always called this bread dessert. My mom and dad have made it for a few years and my grandmother before that. We usually serve it during the holidays.
Povitica (pronounced po-va-teet-sa) is traditional Eastern European dessert bread that is traditionally served during the holiday season. It is also known as Nutroll, Potica, Kalachi, Strudia, just to name a few. Family recipes, and the secrets on how to roll the bread so thin, was passed down through generations of families.
My dough wasn't rolled thin enough. I thought it was, but in looking at others, wow, theres is really super thin looks so cool.
I completely forgot that I froze two loaves to take out tomorrow as my parents are here before they head out for South Texas tomorrow for the winter. Here I made Oreo Brownies and Spider Cupcakes, too. I guess we can never have enough dessert!
Be sure to visit Jenni athttp://thegingeredwhisk.blogspot.com/ to see the recipe and her Povitica.
We all thought this was delicious!
