Sweet City Adventure: Discover Typical Slovenian Desserts in Maribor
Tasting traditional local dishes is always a treat, and what could make your visit to Maribor sweeter than trying the most delicious Slovenian desserts? With the local guide from Tasting Maribor team, your sweet experience will get an even more authentic dimension. Our favourite to start with would be Pohorska Omleta, or Pohorje Omelette, a dessert typical for the Maribor – Pohorje area, made of folded pound cake dough and filled with cranberry marmalade and whipped cream. Franc Pogačar invented the recipe for Pohorska Omleta in 1952 in a mountain hut called Poštarski dom, now Hotel Tisa.
The next must-try is Prekmurska gibanica, or Prekmurje layer cake, protected with EU’s Traditional Specialty Guaranteed label. It originates from the easternmost parts of Slovenia. It traditionally consists of 19 layers, all richly covered with cream, eggs, and butter, and four different fillings: cottage cheese, poppy seed, walnut, and apple filling.
The sweet adventure is not possible without tasting Potica, or Slovenian nut roll, This traditional dessert is prepared all over the country. A number of different fillings are used, but the most popular is definitely the walnut filling. Other common fillings include poppy seeds, tarragon, and savoury spices. Slovenians traditionally eat potica for Easter and Christmas.
