Bread Baking Babes Bake Sweet Breads

I love sweet breads.

I’m not so crazy about sweetbreads.

One of my early lessons in ‘not making assumptions when in a foreign country’ was the unintentional discovery that ris de veau is not veal with rice.

It’s veal sweetbread… which is the thymus or pancreas of a calf.

Nothing remotely like these lovely, sweet, Czech Kolaches that the Babes baked this month.

I love almost any pastry, but these wonderful, soft, slightly sweet kolaches with cream cheese or fruit jam, (or both) are making me drool.

This summer challenge for the Babes is from Judy, of Judy’s Gross Eats, our host Kitchen for July.

The Kolache are a festive bread brought to the U.S. by Czech immigrants.

You can read more about the history, and about her friend’s Grandma, on Judy’s Gross Eats. You’ll also find the recipe as well as links to a variety of fillings.

And, of course, all the details for baking along this month.

  1. My mother in law was Hungarian/Czech. I’ve enjoyed variations of these forever it seems. They’re wonderful and, unfortunately, addictive because they’re small and so easy to pop in your mouth, you don’t realize how many you’ve eaten!!

    (long week this week, lots of storms, lots of lost power)

  2. Thank you for adding the photo of my insanely late kolaches, Katie! Ha. I just noticed that all these kolaches look like they would be perfect to serve for Santa Lucia Day (they look very much like occhi, don’t you think?)
