In addition to the classic walnut potica, you can also spice up the Easter breakfast with some other sweet delicacies. How about a moist carrot cake or traditional Easter bread?
Easter tradition dictates that our Easter table be set with colorful pirhs, excellent homemade potica, succulent ham and freshly grated horseradish.
On it there is often another delicacy – pinca, which is typical for Primorska, braid, ham in dough, homemade bread, and also cakes or biscuits in the form of rabbits and chickens.
Easter is considered a holiday when the rich cultural heritage of the place and the limitless culinary creativity of local chefs can be perfectly combined. Undoubtedly a real opportunity for the family to sit around a table for a few hours and chat lightheartedly over homemade snacks.
Did you know?
The Easter Bunny is a kind of keeper of Easter eggs. The rabbit is said to have first appeared at festivals in Germany in the 16th century. However, over the centuries, the habit of hiding eggs has spread to other parts of the world. Nowadays, finding pirhs is a fun Easter adventure prepared by many families, especially to keep the youngest entertained.
Rabbits hide eggs in the apartment, in the yard, in the garden and sometimes in the barn.
In the sign of the rabbit
Rabbits are a very important symbol of Easter. Not only in the form of chocolate figures, but also in interesting decorative prints and last but not least in culinary delicacies. Desserts and breads in the shape of bunnies, bunny tails and ears are a nice culinary spice.
We can spice up the cakes with paper rabbit ears, but we can also conjure up colorful muffins and other cupcakes. In addition to yellow chickens, the rabbit is a real Easter mascot, especially because of the cheeky toddler eyes. With their help and above all with their limitless imagination, your Easter creation will be even more fabulous.
And because the bunny loves carrots, we also think of him when creating the dessert. One of them is the excellent carrot cake that kids love.
Carrot cake with walnuts
You can upgrade the cake in a number of ways. With spreads and decorations. However, the cookie is so good that just dusting it with a thick layer of powdered sugar is enough.
1 cup (250ml) Sugar Agragold
1.5 cups flour
1 baking powder
0.5 cups of sunflower oil
0.5 cups of milk
110 g ground walnuts or almonds
350 g grated carrots
500 ml whipping cream
Beat the egg sugar and vanilla sugar until fluffy and light and thick. Add oil and milk while mixing, then flour with baking powder and ground walnuts. Finally stir in the carrots.
Pour the dough into a greased round baking pan and bake at 170 degrees for about 45 minutes.
Once the dough has cooled, cut in half and spread with whipped cream. Assemble the cake and spread the outside. Then decorate as you like – with sweets in the form of carrots or pears, ground walnuts or fresh flowers.
A wonderful decoration with which you can also sweeten yourself
The red thread of Easter is also the unique table decoration. A beautifully laid table is the focal point of a family celebration.
One of the Easter treats that has become almost a must is undoubtedly the sweet Easter bread, which you can shape in a variety of ways – either into a cheeky bunny or a cute little nest for your rolls.
Sweet Easter bread
We present you a recipe for traditional nests. With a little practice, the dough can be shaped into a wide variety of shapes.
650 grams of flour
180 g Sugar Agragold
70g margarine or butter
200 grams of milk
1 vanilla sugar
In a large bowl, first crush the yeast in the lukewarm milk. Stir gently and add more sugar, softened butter or margarine. Mix well and add more eggs. Add more flour with vanilla sugar while mixing. Stir until you get a soft dough that will otherwise feel a bit sticky.
Cover with foil and let rise for about an hour or until the dough doubles in size.
Place the dough on a floured surface and divide into 12 equal parts (each 100 g).
Roll each into a longer roll. Twist the two together into a putty and shape them into a nest.
Place the nests on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper. Put them in the oven for a little more rise (30-40 minutes).
Brush each with beaten egg yolk to which you have added 2 tablespoons of milk.
Bake at 180 degrees for about 20 minutes.
