    I have been searching for a recipe for a bosnian bread called lepinja for years.I have found a few recipes but the instructions and measurements are not clear.I asked the restaurant where I usually purchase this bread for the recipe but they will not give it out.The bread is small and round it has very large airpockets and is very soft and pillowy.I have tried to recreate it at home but I have not been successful.The bosnians serve this bread with cevapcici as a sandwich.It is so delicious I am hoping that someone out there is willing to share their recipe and technique for making this bread.Thank You!

    I'm not familiar with it but will check some of my sources, and will also ask over at the Eastern European forum. Sounds very interesting.

    I found this recipe which seems fairly clear, .

    The bread sounds a bit like pita bread. What I gather is that a hot oven may be key to getting a pocket to develop - you might try raising the oven temperature to 450 or 500, and baking them on a pizza stone instead of on a baking pan. If you are using a cookie sheet, let it heat up in the oven so that the bread hits a hot surface.

    I've never actually made pita bread - don't know why, I just haven't - but if you do develop the recipe to a point you are happy with it, I hope you post it here. I think the hatchmarks on it are very attractive. I will have to see if I can find a Bosnian restaurant somewhere close to me, to try this out.

    Please let us know whether this works out for you. I did post in the Eastern European forum, but with the holidays people might not be dropping in as often. Perhaps we will be lucky and get advice from an expert lepinja baker!

    The recipe for lapinja (cevapi lepinja) will never EVER be clear. That's a secret recipe and no matter if you find it on the internet, making it yourself will never be the same. It's like asking how to make coke or pepsi, please please...thank you. No cevapi cook, or a restaurant owner will ever give you the recipe. Sure there are some regular flat bread, or pita pocket breads, or osmething similar, but not the real lepinja. Sorry for dissapointment icon_lol.gif
