Aranka's Kupus Kifle

Aranka & Magdi in Titel

Kupus Kifle (Serb/Croat) literally means "cabbage rolls". But it is not referring to the use of cabbage, it's referring to the "leafiness" of the pastry. They are more like 'croissants'.

This recipe is from my beautiful cousin Aranka from Titel.

Aranka's recipe is written in Serbo/Croation.

The Recipe for Kupus Kifle:

1/2 liter milk
1 sachet yeast (approx. 7g)
2 tblsp sugar
2 tblsp salt

Mix yeast with warm milk & sugar.
When the yeast bubbles add 1 small coffee cup vegetable oil.

Add salt and mix.

Add 1 kg plain flour.

Knead and divide into 4 pieces.
Rest for 15 minutes.

Mix 250g margarine/butter with 4 egg yolks and 2 tsp salt.

Roll out each piece of pastry and smear the butter/egg yolk filling over it.

Then roll into a cylinder.

Cut in a zig-zag shape.

Brush with egg wash and bake in hot oven.
