Povitica Nut Bread

Povitica is a Croatian sweet bread traditionally made during the holidays. I learned about it from my cousin Andrea who is an extraordinary baker and cook. Nothing is too big a challenge for her to tackle. Can you say three tier wedding cake? Anyway, the last time we visited, we made this Croatian sweet nut bread together.

Great memories, something to keep everybody busy and the bonus of a sweet outcome.

So with all the time you invest, you have a couple for yourself and several to give as gifts. If you do this with a small group, everyone takes home a loaf.
