Walnut potica festive time is here.
Potica, synonym for festive events, is a spiral rolled Slovenian festive cake. The recipe for potica cake is passing from one generation to another. Nut bread baking is a challenge for all of us. We need to use our own creativity and try to make potica many times before we can proudly say: “This is potica I was looking for!”
There are many potica bread varieties following the seasons (potica with carob, cracklings, honey, tarragon, chives, cottage cheese, poppy seeds, carrots, raisins, dried fruit, Carniolan sausage, walnuts).
