The Daring Baker’s October 2011 challenge was Povitica, hosted by Jenni of The Gingered Whisk. Povitica is a traditional Eastern European Dessert Bread that is as lovely to look at as it is to eat!

My parents used to make a lot of cinnamon swirl bread when I was growing up and Povitica brought back fine memories of those steamy sweet loaves. Rolled thinner, folded up twice, and filled with cocoa powder and nuts in addition to the cinnamon and sugar it is just what the doctor ordered for a cold rainy fall day.

Once again my challenge went with me to Bible Study and the ladies all loved it. I ended up making one cinnamon sugar loaf, one traditional loaf, and two Nutella filled loaves. Reviews on the Nutella loaf were mixed but the traditional got rave reviews. I will definitely make Povitica again.
