SLOVENIA – Belokranjska Pogača (salted cake)


This is another bread with the name, Pogača (like the Serbian bread I recently baked) but this one turned out drier. That was to be expected considering the amount of margarine in the Serbian version compared with the small amount of oil for this bread.


  • Faithfulness to recipe: Yes
  • Met expectations? Yes. 
  • Would cook again? No. It was just a little boring compared with other similar breads, and was a little dry.  
  • The taste test rated on a score of 5: 3. Although the kids were keen to eat more of it.



Note: I halved this recipe as I didn’t want to make 4 breads.
