Perfect Povitica Bread - Learn To Make This Kansas City Tradition!
Who doesn’t love Povitica? We are delighted that Rachel Ciordas is in the kitchen to share her recipes and know-how as we learn to create this beautiful and versatile bread.
Povitica (pronounced poh-vee-TEET-sah) is a yeast-raised dough with a variety of fillings – sweet or savory – rolled, and baked to perfection in a loaf pan. This swirled bread is a nostalgic favorite of many Eastern Europeans and their descendants… and, guess what, Rachel’s hubby, Ionut, just happens to be from Romania where Povitica is beloved and known as “Cozonac.”
Tonight, you’ll learn all about the ingredients that go into making this stuffed sweet yeast bread. You’ll learn rolling techniques and how to make two fabulous fillings – the traditional walnut filling and the irresistible classic cream cheese filling. You’ll garner lots of ideas for different shapes and filling variations, too.
Although traditionally served on special occasions, this versatile bread is perfect with your morning coffee… a lovely addition to any meal and can be served as an evening dessert! How many breads can make that claim?
Once you learn how to make this delightful bread, the sky is the limit on gift giving! Tradition says that a gift of homemade Povitica from one family to another is a symbol of respect – which makes your handmade masterpiece the perfect hostess gift!
You’ll be learning it ALL: first, you’ll make a batch of dough that you’ll take home. Then, you’ll whip up some yummy filling. And finally, you’ll roll and fill your very own loaf of dough to take home. You can bake it up and serve it right away OR freeze it for later when company arrives! It just does NOT get any better than that, my friends.
