    Meme*'s Note:

    The best way to translate the name is “folded cake”. This is one of the most famous and loved Slovenian dishes. It comes from our most eastern region Prekmurje whose cousine is inspired by Hungarian and Austrian traditions. The recipe is very old and varies a little from family to family. I got this one from a Slovenian cookbook to be certain that all the measurements are correct. The preparation takes quite some time but it is all worth it.

      Mix the dough from all the ingredients until it is elastic and smooth. Divide it into 12 pieces. Leave it to rest for half an hour.
    2. 2
      To make poppy filling boil the milk and mix it into poppy seeds. Add sugar and vanilla essence.
    3. 3
      Mash the cottage cheese until smooth, add egg, cream and as much raisins as you like.
    4. 4
      Pour boiled milk over walnuts. Add sugar, vanilla essence and cinnamon. Mix it until smooth and creamy. If you need add some more milk.

      When all the fillings are ready, roll and stretch the dough to fit into the deep pan. Leave them on a floured clean tablecloth to dry a bit.
