Croatian Hrapoćuša Cake, from Brač Island

Excited to share this recipe! It combines my love of baking with my full-time job as a travel specialist with Adventures Croatia! I love Croatia and all of its culinary delights, but their traditional food is so amazing, happy to include this in my blog.

I hope you love Walnuts!

My favorite aspect of this cake is the almost 5 cups of walnuts it uses! I could eat the walnut praline just by itself. The 2 separate elements that make up this cake are worth the effort, and you can make the cake ahead of any special dinners and freeze.

Coming from Croatia’s island of Brač, this dense hrapoćuša cake is loaded with sticky walnuts and hints of lemon. Hrapoćuša is included on the Croatian Republic’s Ministry of Culture’s list of protected cultural heritage, and it is DELICIOUS!
