This recipe comes originally from the capital city of Slovakia, Bratislava, formerly known as Pressburg. The main ingredient is poppy seed, however, a walnut version is very common, too.
It is an excellent dessert served all over Slovakia and recently Austria and Hungary. All ingredients are easy-to-buy, so enjoy this recipe with your family and friends!
This recipe is our national (Slovak) recipe. It has been baked in Slovakia for centuries. Original name without interpunction is "Bryndzove kolace". So-called "bryndza" is the main ingredient and it is made of soft sheep cheese in the north of the country and it is known here since 15th century.
You may put the filling on the whole cake or only into the middle of it. I think that all cheese-lovers will like the first possibility more :) It is also very nice with baked chops of bacon on the top.
