Coconut kisses

List of ingredients:

  • 3 egg whites
  • pinch of salt
  • 220 grams of powdered sugar
  • 200 grams of coconut flour
  • 1 teaspoon of lemon juice


We start off by mixing the egg whites to which we add 1 pinch of salt and 220 grams of powdered sugar.



Now we mix this mixture until it becomes hard and thick.


Next we start mixing in 200 grams of coconut flour slowly and make sure we don’t liquify the mixture too much.



Next we prepare our baking try on which we put some parchment paper.


The only thing left to do is to create the kisses. We do that by grabing a piping bag and filling it up with the mixture we made a few minutes earlier. Now we jsut start making shapes looking similar to this.


We put this baking tray in the oven for 20 minutes on 150°C ( 302 Fahrenheit) and the coconut kisses are ready to eat.


Enjoy this very simple dessert.



List of ingredients:

  • 1 kg of flour
  • 1 cube of yeast
  • 1 package of baking powder
  • 1/2 l of milk
  • 7 egg yolks
  • 60 grams of sugar
  • 1 package of sugar with vanilla
  • 1 dl of oil (+ 1.5 liters for frying)
  • 1/2 dl of rum
  • 1 teaspoon of salt
  • 1/2 juice of a lemon
  • filling of choice
  • Powdered sugar


We start off by preparing yeast. We do that by crumbling 1 cube of yeast and adding to it a bit of sugar, flour and milk but don’t exaggerate with the amount. And we set this mixture next to something hot. In my case I set it next to the fireplace so it will rise quicker.


Now we start preparing the dough. First grab a big bowl and put all 7 egg yolks in it comined with 60 grams of sugar.20170226_111739


Now we mix it until it starts to turn yellow. Once it turn to this color we can add the rum and oil into our dough mixture and mix it well.


Next we add the lemon juice and yeast which rested next to a warm place.


And now we start putting in flour and milk in small amounts alternately until we used up the whole flour and milk.20170226_112536


After mixing all of our ingredients well the dough should look similar to this.


Now we start making balls out of our dough. I suggest using a scale for this and putting 70-100 grams of dough into each ball. After using up all the dough we let the balls rest for 30-45 minutes so they rise.


After the balls have rested we put oil in a pot about 3 fingers thick and turn the stove on high until the oil gets hot. Then we start putting balls we made 30 minute ago into the pot. Be careful not to put to many balls in it at once.


Depending on the temperature of the oil the doghnuts will start turning brown and after they get to the color you desire (light brown or dark brown) we flip them.


After they have the same color on top as they have on the bottom they are ready to be taken out of the pot.


Now we grab our filling of choice and start filling them.


After filling up the doughnuts with our filling of choice we sprinkle some powdered sugar on top and after that they are ready to eat.


Enjoy this sweet dessert!

Cool Potica with walnuts or poppy seeds

Sponge cake:

  • 900 grams of flour
  • 1/2 of a teaspoon of salt
  • 30 grams of yeast
  • 100 grams of sugar
  • 140 grams of butter
  • 4 egg yolks
  • 1 vanilla sugar
  • lemon peel
  • approximately 3 dl of milk
  • 4 tablespoons of rum


For Nut Roll

  • 400 grams of ground walnuts
  • 150 grams of sugar
  • 2 dl of milk

For Poppy Seed Roll

  • 400 grams of ground poppy seeds
  • 150 grams fo sugar
  • 2 dl of milk
  • 4 egg whites


First we take a large mixing bowl and put 800 grams of flour into it.


After that we make a little hole in the middle where we will put the rest of our ingerdients. First come 4 egg yolks.


Next come the 4 tablespoons of rum.


After that we put in 100 gams of sugar.


Do not mix it quite yet!

Let it sit for a little while and in the meantime we can prepare our yeast.

We crumble the 30 grams of yeast into a large cup.


Next we add in some sugar.


Finally place in 0.3 dl of milk and set it by a fireplace or any place that is warmer than room temperature.


Now let’s get back to the mixing bowl.

Put in 140 grams of butter and after that’s all done we can start mixing it.


Mix it by making small circles and only picking up small amounts of flour at the time.

After a couple of minutes of mixing put in 3 dl of milk and mix the same way we did before.


After yeast has risen to the very top of the large cup it’s ready to be added to our mixing bowl.



Next we mix in the yeast and at the end it should look like this.


Now we can move on over to the second step which is to knead the dough.

First we must get our work area ready by simply putting some flour on to it.


Here are some pictures of me kneading the dough.


After the dough has been kneaded well it should look a little something like this.


Now we can start making our filling.

For Nut Roll:

We put 400 grams of ground walnuts in a bowl and add 150 grams of sugar to it.


Next we put in 2 dl of milk and mix that well.


That’s all there is to the walnut filling.

For Poppy Seed Roll:

We put 400 grams of ground poppy seeds in a bowl and add 150 grams of sugar to it.


Next we put 2 dl of milk to the bowl nd mix that well.


Last but not least we put in 4 beaten up egg whites.


Next we need to roll out our dough so that we can put in the filling.


Next we put on top of filling of choice and spread it arond the rolled out dough.


I have also decided to put some raisins into my potica but this is just personal preference.


After raisins are spread throughout the whole dough we can roll our potica.

First we need to roll it a little bit by force by simply rolling the dough with our hands. However then we continue by grabbing the cloth and putting enough force into it so that the potica rolls by itself.


Finally we just need to prepare our mold which is covered by parchment paper and put our potica in it.


Next we let it rest for the whole night.

And the next morning we put it in the oven at 190°C ( 374 Fahrenheit) for 1 hour.



Now all there is left to do is to cut it into squares.



I hope you enjoyed this recipe and make a potica yourself.
