What is Potica?

Its name derives from the Slovenian word poviti, which means "to wrap in." Every family has its favorite recipe and a walnut potica, the most popular kind, can vary from one household to the next. My walnut potica is very similar to my mother and grandma Rosie’s.

Known as Potica (poh-TEET-sah) among Slovenians and povitica (poh-vee-TEET-sah) among Croatians, this sweet or savory pastry is made with a yeast-raised dough that is rolled or stretched out thinly and then spread with a filling.

Sharing traditional baked goods from my childhood on the Iron Range, traditional Slovenian and Polish treats and so much more.
I'm hoping to add a few traditional Slovenian or Polish baked goods this summer.
Potica will be available for Easter and in the fall for Thanksgiving and Christmas for sure and occasionally throughout the winter. If you need potica for a special occasion, please email me with a date and I will check my calendar.
Special order of walnut potica requires minimum of 2.
