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. 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.

Due to the high demand for cookies during the holidays, I need to limit the dates I bake potica so I can continue offering quality baked goods while also enjoying the holidays with my family. Potica freezes great and I include thawing directions so your potica will be delicious for your holiday celebrations.
