Daring Kitchen: Povitica

Povitica is a traditional Eastern European Bread and it was the challenge for this months Daring Bakers. The recipe is lengthy, so I've chosen not to repost it here, but you can find it on our host, Jenni's blog The Gingered Whisk.

This bread has a walnut filling and it's quite yummy. Mine came out a little dry, but I liked it and it did get wolfed down promptly. I think if I make it again I'll add a sweet cream cheese filling as well as or instead of the walnuts. It was certainly a new challenge! You basically make a sweet bread dough, let it rise, then roll it super super thin, covered it with a topping, then roll it up into a big log and bake it.

Definitely an interesting thing if you have a rainy afternoon and a bunch of walnuts! I'm still enjoying the Daring Kitchen challenges. It's neat to make something I wouldn't have thought of before!


  1. Didn't have time to complete the challenge this month but yours looks great!

  2. Thanks Ceecee! I would definitely recommend making it sometime!

  3. Great job! Your povitica turned out really nice - you got some fun swirls!

  4. Great picture! Your crust turned out much nicer than mine. I agree, cream cheese filling would be great with this too!

  5. Thanks all! I really liked how it looked too.
