The Daring Baker’s October 2011 challenge was Povitica, hosted by Jenni of The Gingered Whisk. Povitica is a traditional Eastern European Dessert Bread that is as lovely to look at as it is to eat!

Here's my version of the Povitica. I filled it with my own homemade lemon curd and currant mixture made as per the walnut filling recipe. It was the quarter quantity recipe and I took the advice of some DB'ers and divided the dough into three and plaited it - hence the appearance of the loaf. It tastes great and even better toasted with butter.

Here is the link for the recipe http://thedaringkitchen.com/sites/default/files/u11/60_Povitica_-_DB_Oct_2011.pdf

Povitica is also called potica. Another Daring Baker says “ It seems that there are quite a few 'how to' videos on youtube under the name 'potica'! This is my favourite so far, not in English, but very cute:”

Thanks Jenni for a great challenge - everyday ingredients turned into something exotic !
