Chocolate Spice Povitica | CBC Life
The magic of povitica lies in the high ratio of filling to bread made possible by the ultra-thin layers of dough wrapping around one another for support. Using a tablecloth or large flour sack-style kitchen towel will make light work of rolling up the large thin dough. Don’t fret if the dough rips while rolling, just fold that part into the middle to keep the filling from baking out. This gorgeous loaf helped Colin win the title of Star Baker on The Great Canadian Baking Show's Bread Week.
Salmon Pie | CBC Life
This savoury salmon pie takes the base of quiche and makes it richer and creamier, offsetting the savouriness of leeks and the briny-ness of the mustard and capers. Serve it with a salad for a brunch or dinner. Make the crust ahead and freeze the dough, pull it out of the fridge to thaw in the morning for an easy dinner. It’s great warm from the oven, and even better the next day for breakfast!
Pithivier | CBC Life
A freeform puff pastry pie, pithiviers are traditionally filled with either sweet or savoury ingredients. Substitute raspberries if cherries are unavailable, just make sure the jam is thick enough to hold its borders when spreading it over the frangipane so it doesn’t leak while it bakes.
