povitica bread

The giant slug up-dated. If you recall I made a loaf of Povitica, a Polish bread, right before Thanksgiving and blogged about it here. I figured I needed to use up the rest of the filling so made another batch of the bread. This time I just used a sweet bread recipe, I think any will do, mine used 4 cups of flour. I added 1 teaspoon of cinnamon to the bread dough, which adds to the cinnamon punch. Then after it raised once I rolled it verry thin and spooned the filling on. What a difference having the filling cold made! It didn't goosh all over and stayed where I put it. Wonderful. I rolled the bread up like cinnamon rolls then folded it into the bread pan. Let it raise, then baked it. Yummy. (No picture since it is already sliced and frozen so we won't be pigs and eat it all. It also wasn't as pretty as the one's pictured in the bakery so go droll there.) So my recommendation if you try the link to the recipe is to half everything and chill the filling, and add cinnamon to the dough. If you don't want to bake the thing at all go order yourself one of them here!

Cinnamon always adds a nice flavor to breads. YUM. Oh by the way, I love the Hawaiian Quilt in your earlier posts. Beautiful.
