Croatian Walnut Roll:

What's The Big Idea?

A delicious Croatian take on Swiss roll. A nutty roulade, enhanced with warming cinnamon and rum. Tastes fabulous with a good cup of strong coffee!

  • 1 packet dried yeast
  • 120ml warm milk

  • Pour over the boiling milk and mix well. Set aside to cool
  • On a floured work surface roll the dough out into a rectangle, about 5mm thick
  • Spread the filling evenly over the dough and roll up
  • Place, seam side down, on a greased baking sheet and allow to rise in a warm place for another 30 minutes
  • Brush the roll with beaten egg white and bake for about 40 minutes or until golden
  • Allow to cool, dust with icing sugar and slice to serve
