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.

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!
I have been looking for this recipe for years. The lady who use to make it at church died. I will try it this weekend. Will let you know how it is. Thank You!!!
