It's Pronounced Poh-Va-Teet-Sa!
At least that’s what grandma called it. This Easter European pastry is know by many names:
Povitica Kolachi Strudel Potica Gubana
Nutroll Poppyroll Makowiec Orechovnik Bejgli
No matter how you say it, no matter what you call it, each Povitca is handmade, and hand rolled with your choice of delectable fillings. From the Traditional English Walnut, to White Chocolate Cherry, you’re sure to find a favorite.
The art of mixing and kneading our dough gives each Povitica a buttery, flakey, and delicate foundation for our handcrafted fillings. Each loaf is hand rounded and then it’s off to the sheeter to get really thin!
Rolling each dough ball until it’s paper thin gives our Povitica its classic white swirls. We roll our dough so thin that you can read a newspaper through it.
Now that the dough is nice and thin, it’s time to get messy. From locally sourced honey, to freshly ground English Walnuts, each small batch of Povitica filling is hand-made daily.
Some say that our Eastern European ancestors added the "S" for Solvenia, we think it's because you get three pretty little loops instead fo one. Either way, it's what makes a Povitica a Strawberry Hill Povitica
Each Povitica is about three pounds before it leisurely basks in a 325 degree oven. Once done, it cools slowly until it’s ready to be hand packed and shipped directly to you or your gift recipient..
