Potica Slovenian Nut Roll Homemade Vintage Recipe - The Homestead Survival - Baking



2 packages active dry, or 2 cakes compressed, yeast

1/2 cup warm (not hot) or lukewarm water

2 cups scalded milk

3/4 cup granulated sugar

1 tablespoon salt

1/2 cup soft butter or margarine

4 egg yolks

8 to 9 cups sifted all-purpose flour


Ingredients for Nut Paste Filling:


1 lb. shelled walnuts

1 cup light cream

1 1/2 cups granulated sugar

1 teaspoon salt

1 teaspoon vanilla extract

1/4 cup butter or margarine

1/4 cup fresh bread crumbs

4 egg whites




1. In a small bowl, sprinkle or crumble yeast onto warm water (for compressed yeast, use lukewarm water); stir until dissolved.

2. In a large bowl, combine milk with sugar, salt, butter. Cool till lukewarm.

3. Stir in egg yolks, yeast mixture, then 2 cups flour; mix well. Stir in enough more flour to make a stiff dough.

4. On a lightly floured surface, knead the dough until smooth.

5. Place in a greased bowl, turning once to grease all sides. Cover with a clean towel; let rise in a warm place (85° F.) about 1 hr., or until dent remains when a finger is pressed deep into the side of the dough.

6. While dough rises, grease 4 9? x 5? x 3? loaf pans.

7. Make the filling: Put walnuts through the fine blade of food chopper. In a medium saucepan, heat cream to boiling point; remove from heat; stir in walnuts, then sugar, salt, vanilla. In a small saucepan, melt butter; stir in bread crumbs until lightly browned; add to walnut mixture. In a bowl, beat egg whites till stiff; fold in walnut mixture.

8. When the dough is ready, turn it onto a lightly floured surface; divide into 4 parts; do not knead.

9. Roll 1 piece into 16? x 9? rectangle; spread with one-fourth of walnut filling. Roll up, jelly-roll fashion, starting from the short side. Pinch ends and side to seal. Place in one of the loaf pans. Repeat with 3 other pieces of dough.

Let rise in warm place 1 hr. Meanwhile, start heating oven to 350° F. Bake loaves 40 to 45 min., or until done. Makes 4 loaves. (For Christmas giving, make a day ahead.)
