I am not sure if this recipe is traditional or not, but I did get it from a Croatian friend. This is a sweet, pudding-like dish that is appropriate for breakfest or brunch.


  1. Grease a 9 x 9 inch baking pan.
  2. Preheat the oven to 425 degrees F.
  3. Mix the first four ingredients together.
  4. Add the remaining ingredients and mix well.
  5. Pour the batter into the pan and bake until the top is nice and brown.
  6. Slice and serve warm with with sliced fruit, berries, cream, or syrup.

I love to try different recipes for cornbread. Looking at the ingredients, I wasn't sure how it was going to come out, but it was great. I like a sweeter bread; this was a little less sweet than I'm used to, but it was very moist and delicious. I will definitely make it again. thanks!

This is very good. I spent an entire summer in Croatia studying rural economics and was served this quite often. It is a little sweeter than what I was served, so not as "authentic" but still very good. There was no baking time, and so in my bizarro-oven I went for 20 minutes. I think next time I may cut the brown sugar in half and swap 1/4 cup of the flour for another 1/4 cup of corn meal. Thanks! Very yummy. Oh, and I served with raspberries, plain, no syrup. Its also traditionally served with "cottage cheese" which isn't the lumpy stuff in our stores, but more like queso fresco or farmer's domestic cheese. I could eat that stuff all day!
