Hi everybody! Today I don't have any card or jewelry piece to show you. No, not any other project either. Today I want to tell you about "potica". That dessert I mentioned in my previous post. Some of you asked me about it, so here are some information ... English name for "potica" is nut roll - according to Wikipedia (see the article here).

"Potica" is traditional Slovenian dessert, even though nowadays it's known around the world as well. Traditional "potica" was filled with walnuts, but now there are many different types - coconut "potica", mint "potica" ... I like most of them. ;) People usually bake "potica" around Easter and Christmas (thought that's not a "rule").
I did some digging online and found the recipe for "potica" in English, in case anybody is interested. Just click here to see the recipe and the picture of "potica". You can see that in the recipe it says you also add some cinnamon in the filling, but youdon't have to do this.

If you have any more questions just let me know. :)

  5. Hi Gerry! I can't contact you any other way, that's why I'm replying here - I hope you'll see this. I haven't tried this recipe myself. My grandma is the one who makes "potica" and it always turns out yummy (but I don't know if she's making it by this recipe). I will ask her about it and for the baking pan dimensions. Please let me know your e-mail so I can reply you there. Thanks.
