    This nut bread sounds good! A multi-generational tradition in my family is Oyster Salad. Sounds gross and the young ones don’t like it, but I make it every year to honor my great-grandmother. It’s an acquired taste. I have never seen this recipe anywhere else, though I’ve tried to trace it’s background. Maybe it came from England?

    This looks delicious…they make one similar to this in Mich. I always bought a nut roll every Christmas and sometimes I’d buy a poppy seed one too…kinda expensive…I think they were $8.00 but well worth it….I think maybe they are called Hungarian Nut Roll & Hungarian Poppy Seed Roll…..you are lucky to have someone to bake them for you Kevin…..maybe your mom can teach Rachel how to make them and carry on the tradition 🙂 eh Rachel 🙂 You could include one or two of these in a contest Kevin….I bet you’d get some takers…..I’d sure love to have one…..

    This type of nut bread is usually known as “Potica” or “Povitica.” My Slovenian-born grandmother made it.

      Also, the Strawberry Hill Povitica Company (bakery) in Kansas City (Merriam, KS) makes several versions and sends out all over the world. They are the closest to my grandmother’s in taste. They have a website and 800 number. Strawberry Hill is an area settled by several ethnic groups.
