Povitisa is a bread made of sweetened dough that is rolled out very thin and flat, and then heavily slathered with a cinnamon-y walnut filling. While walnut is the most traditional of the fillings used to make povitisa, other choices of fillings include chocolate, hazelnuts, strawberry jam, apples, cherries, and/or cream cheese. After the filling is spread over the dough, it is rolled up tightly, placed into loaf pans for uniform sizes and baked.
