Walnut roll is traditionally prepared during the holidays in Croatia. It’s packed with flavour and, for me personally, best when dough layer is fairly overpowered by its more attractive neighbour, walnut layer. Generous amount of walnuts ensures enough moist that makes the roll so delicious.
Its other famous, almost a twin, brother is a poppy seed roll and people often debate on which one is better.
There is no doubt as far as I am concerned. I am not a big poppy seed fan and my one and only love when it comes to rolls, will always be a walnut roll.
Enough of sentimentality, lets explain how it should be done.
