October 2011 Daring Baker Povitica!

This may not look it, but it's a "mini" version of the daring baker challenge.

The Daring Baker’s October 2011 challenge was Povitica, hosted by Jenni of The Gingered Whisk. Povitica is a traditional Eastern European Dessert Bread that is as lovely to look at as it is to eat!

I decided to keep to the traditional recipe of povitica - because it sounded really tasty. Just think about it - a rich dough hiding the secret of a walnut sugar rich filling, all wrapped up and just pretty as a picture both before and after you cut it!

Along with a nice cup of coffee or tea, this is an awesome way to start the day - or an even better way to take a little break in the middle of the day for "tea time". Everyone I gifted these too loved them, and I encourage you to make this as soon as your can. The .pdf of the recipe can be found here.

Thank you again for such a great challenge, and Happy Halloween everyone!


  1. Renae...what a BEAUTIFUL job you did on this bread! I know it was not an easy challenge this month. But it looks like you had no trouble at all! I would love to have a slice of this with my daily cup of tea! : )

  2. Wonderful job! Your mini povitica turned out beautifully! And yes, this bread is perfect with a hot cup of tea (or coffee!).
