Some slovenian food recipes

I live in region BELA KRAJINA  which is neer Croacia.  I live in city Črnomelj in part named Loka ( u know “crazy” in spanish huahuahuahu). Every true “Belokranjka” (= girl from Bela Krajina) know how to do Belokranjska pogača. But I DON’ T 🙂 I don’t know how to do it cuz my mam is not from here, she’s from Prekmurje (part of Slovenia neer Austria and Hungary  ) She never learned how to do it and so I also didn’t have oportunity to learn. So I decide that now is the time that I found out how to do this. Is really simple thing to do and really good to eat 😉 When I’ll make it i’ll proudlly show pictures xDD

Here is the recipe in english for “Belokranjska pogača” and for some other tradicional slovenian food. 

Belokranjska pogača (salted cake)

Belokranjska pogača (salted cake). Ingredients:

1 kg flour
2 tbs salt
1 tbs sugar
2 tbs oil
2 packages of dried yeast
Approx. 0,7 l warm water

Mix all the ingredients and form a dough. Leave to rise for 30 minutes. Spread the dough evenly onto a baking tray, slice it into squares and glaze it with the beaten egg. The cake can be sprinkled with salt. Bake in a pre-heated oven for approximately 45 minutes at 200°C.


As I was looking more on internet I found that aparentlly english translation for Belokranjska pogača is “Slovenian flat bread with caraway”  On top u can also add cheese and ham ( that’s in fact my fav. version cuz I don’t like so much caraway =p )       —> about Bela Krajina starts at page 69! 🙂  and Belokranjska pogača is in page 75.
