This pogacha is very tasty, and it is lean. It is usually prepared for Badnik and we insert a coin inside, then divide it in the family. It is believed that the one that gets the coin will have luck in the following year.

  • 40 g of yeast
  • 500 ml of water
  • 1 tablespoon of sugar 1
  • 1 tablespoon of salt
  • 700 + 100 grams of flour
  • oil (depends on whether it is fasting on water or not, 50 ml)
  • sesame seeds
  1. Put the yeast in lukewarm water, then add the sugar and mix. Add 1 tbs of flour and mix.
  2. After yeast is  activated, add half the flour and salt and mix again. 
  3. Add the remaining flour and mix with a spoon. If you don't fast on water, then add two thirds of 50 ml oil and mix it. 
  4. Allow the dough to rest for 30 minutes. 
  5. When it grows, sprinkle the dough with 100 grams of flour and then knead it.. Now the dough should not be sticky, but smooth and soft.
    Divide the dough in half, then each half in half (the parts should be equal), again in half, until you get 20 equal parts. Make a ball from every piece of dough.
    If you can use oil, coat the baking pan with oil, then place one ball in the middle, then 6 balls around it, and the remaining 13 around them. Do not touch them too closely, because they will grow up. If you fast with water, put baking paper before you align the balls.
  6. In the end, sprinkle sesame seeds.
    Allow the dough to stand for another 30 minutes, then bake it in a preheated oven at 200 C degrees for about 25 minutes.
    Ready pogacha coat with oil or only with water and insert the coin.
  7. This it the easier way of preparing this pogacha.
  8. If you want, you can roll a crust from the ready dough, roll it and cut it in circles, then align them in the pan.
