Rose Bread by Ana Lazic (Serbian = Погача Ружа)


1 cup water
1 cup milk
2 tea spoons dried yeast
1 tea spoon salt (if salted butter is used, use less)
1/3-1/2 cup oil
4 cups white flour
1/4 lb unsalted butter

Mix flour, yeast and salt in a bowl. Heat up milk for 1 min on high in the microwave. Add water and oil to the warm milk, pour this mix over the flour mix. Mix everything well and let the dough sit for 45-60 min. Split the dough into four portions.

Stretch each portion relatively thin.

Spread the butter on top.

Roll into a log.

Cut the log into pieces (each piece will become a rose after baking) and place them next to each other with some space in between in a buttered pan. Let the dough rise for 30 min. more - the individual pieces should start touching each other.

Bake at 400ºF for 25 min. In a small bowl, mix a small amount of water and vegetable oil. While the dough is still warm, cover each rose with a thin layer of oil+water mix using a brush.

  1. Looks yummy as usual. Anyway to add cinnamon to it for Breakfast Rolls?

  2. Looks good. Any chance of you posting lepinje and cevapcici recipes? None of the recipes online look particularly promising.

  3. Hi Stickman,
    I also didn't have much luck with cevapcici yet. I haven't tried to make then in a while. Maybe I will try one of there weekends and post it.
