Here’s a recipe for a delicious Yuletide holiday svaijko. It is a freely adapted modern version of a very old, traditional Romany holiday recipe.
For the dough:
- 25 grams of yeast
- 60 grams of butter
- 2.5 deciliters of water
- 0.5 deciliters of sugar
- 1 liter of flour
For the filling:
- 100 grams of sour cream
- 100 grams of butter
- 200 grams of sweet chocolate
Mix the yeast, butter, water sugar and flour in a bowl so that you get a firm dough. In another bowl, mix sour cream, sugar and raisins.
Roll out the dough so that it is flattened, and spread the filling all over it. Shred the chocolate all over. Roll up the dough into a cylinder shaped roll – but carefully, so that the filling does not leak.
Brush the roll with butter, and spread some sugar all over it.
Bake it in the oven at 200 degrees Celsius (390 degrees Fahrenheit) for about 40 minutes, until the roll is relatively firm inside.
Slice the roll into appropriate pieces. Serve it as a snack after the Christmas dinner, and your Christmas feast will be a great success!
