Potica Bread Revisited

Potica Bread. It's that time again! Posted by Picasa
"If thou tasteth a crust of bread, thou tasteth all the stars and all the heavens." ~ Robert Browning (1812-1889) English poet
Almost every day I see a site visit from someone searching for "Potica Bread". In the last two weeks the number of "seekers" has increased dramatically; yesterday there were fifteen. It is the season for this fabulous sweet bread, at least in our home. Part of our Christmas tradition for over 25 years now, we have warmed potica bread, bacon and eggs and hot coffee every Christmas morning, before opening packages. A wrapped and ribboned spiral is often given as a special gift to neighbors and friends and very soon the smell of baking bread will fill the house and the taste of cinnamon and brown sugar will mix together in this heavenly treat.

To this end I am including a link to the original recipe I posted last year. I hope this will make it easier to find for anyone who would like to try a loaf. Perhaps it will become a part of your family tradition as well.
