Perfect Povitica Bread - Learn to Make this Kansas City Tradition with Pastry Chef Erik Sharp
Who doesn’t love Povitica Bread? Experienced baker Chef Erik Sharp will teach this interesting class and share his 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.
Today, you’ll learn all about the ingredients that go into making this stuffed, swirled, sweet yeast bread, plus 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.
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! Boom!
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 for the holidays or any time of the year! It just does NOT get any better than that, my friends.
