Croatian Cooking Does Not Get Any Simpler Than This Klipići Recipe (Also Known As Kiflice)
Klipići is a savory roll made in the continental part of Croatia, mostly in Zagorje, Podravina, Međimurje, and Slavonija.
This particular recipe comes from my new friends over at Hrvatska kuhinja (Croatian Cooking). This recipe variation was
stolen borrowed from a Baba (Grandmother) who was born in Zagorje, which makes this particular version completely traditional.
I’ve been promised that along with the kremsnite (custard slice) recipe we shared last week, that these too are very easy to make and are so tasteful everybody loves them!
As with almost every food in Croatia, there are many different regional versions of this dish & different names by which it is known.
In this case, they are also called Kiflice. After chatting to a few of my family, these rolls can also be filled with a variety of fillings and seed toppings. So I say, try this version and then get creative in your kitchen (if you do, we’d love to hear about it).
For yeast, you will need:
- 1 yeast cube
- 1 spoon of sugar
- 1 spoon of flour
- some milk
For the dough you will also need:
- 1 kg of plain white flour
- 3o mls of oil
- 45o mls of milk
- 1 spoon of salt
Preparing The Yeast
- Heat a little bit of milk in a bowl and remove from the heat.
- To the slightly heated milk, add 1 yeast cube (you can use dry yeast if you prefer, but it’s better to use the fresh), 1 spoon of sugar and 1 spoon of flour. Leave to rest.
Preparing The Dough
- Add the yeast mixture to 1 kg of flour and mix well.
- Then add in the oil, milk, and salt and knead the dough. Leave to rest for at least one hour.
- When the mixture has doubled in size, roll the dough and cut into six little piles.
- Roll out each pile into a circle. Cut each circle into eight equal triangles, and them roll into the shape shown in the picture. Create a bend into the middle to create a slight arc.
- Once rolled, wash over with a beaten egg & add everything you desire to decorate.
- Bake at 180 C (350F) degrees until they gain a nice golden brown color.
Suggestions for toppings include; sesame, flax, pumpkin or sunflower seeds, or cumin. But you can choose almost anything you fancy.
We believe that once you make them, you will always love to make them.
