Bread Baking Babes go a little nuts

Or not.

It’s really up to the Babe.

Some did walnuts but one did pecans.

Coffee was used… or not. Same with chocolate.

There were musings about using spinach and feta but no one did it – yet.

There’s a photo and a hint of blueberry jam and cream cheese.

There is almost universal agreement that, while this is a time-consuming bread to make, and, maybe, a little challenging, every bite makes it worthwhile.

I say ‘almost universal’ because the only thing the Babes agree on is that they never agree on everything.

That’s what makes life interesting.

This interesting bread, Potica or Povitica, is Slovenian. They say that anyone who can make this qualifies as a ‘good cook’.

Kelly, of A Messy Kitchen, and our host kitchen for this month, thinks all the Babes qualify.

So do I.

You really need to have a look at their ingenious efforts in getting this thinly rolled, filled, wrapped, wonderful bread made.

If you want to try this lovely, flavorful bread, meander over to A Messy Kitchen. You’ll find the recipe, easy instructions, and helpful hints… maybe even a video.

In the meantime, have a look at what the Babes did this month…. Try not to drool on your computer.

  1. Wow we did good! I really wish I’d added dark chocolate to my poppyseeds but yes spinach is next on my list in an 8 inch round cake pan. Thanks for putting us all together!

  2. Yes, a round cake pan will definitely be in order! I’m thinking of trying hazelnuts and dates next time (sort of along the lines of SAVEUR’s hazelnut and fig povitica recipe) and maybe adding some lemon zest to the dough. The possibilties really are endless, aren’t they?

    Echoing thanks to Katie for swirling all the breads together onto the same page. (I’m having difficulty finding the reply window in both firefox and chrome. But I can reply to someone else’s comment in Chrome. Is it my set up? Have I done something to firefox to make the comment area disappear??)

    • Maybe dates and goat cheese? Just a though…. and hazelnuts for texture.
      Don’t get me started on browser issues….

      • Dates and goat cheese and hazelnuts sounds perfect!

        Sigh. I know what you mean about browser issues. I wish the coding geniuses would get a grip and stop changing things every few seconds simply to create make-work projects. (Had to fire up Chrome again to reply….)

  3. I dearly love a good spanokopita and really think this would be easy than dealing with layers of phyllo! If I try it, I will do a super long roll and wind it up snail style like a Greek cheese pie. Yum.
