I Love Croatia #3

Well it's been a long time since I posted an I Love Croatia post but I'm back!

About 8 years ago I first tasted this old Croatian recipe called Zlevanka and simply loved it. It reminds me so much of home (the good ol' Lone Star State) and yummy corn bread and I think that's why I like it so much.

Anyhow, the other day at the national pastor's house his sweet wife Ljubica made Zlevanka. Okay let me confess a bit, I had 3 pieces!

So today I made some Zlevanka at home and served it with some mixed berries with lemon juice and powdered sugar. It was to die for and oh so easy. Croatians add dollops of fresh cheese and raisins but I think it's great without so that's how I fix it.

Here's the recipe and you'll be surprised at how easy and delish it is.

Croatian Zlevanka
1 cup flour
1 cup corn meal
1 cup sugar
1 tbsp. baking powder
2 large eggs
1 cup oil
1 cup milk

Mix everything thoroughly and pour into 9x8 baking pan or dish. Bake at °325 just until a tooth pick comes out somewhat clean, do not over bake.

Sprinkle with powdered sugar while still warm. Enjoy!

Let me know if you make this and what you think.
