Meet the Hrapocusa (Croatian Dol Cake)

Nut lovers will go nuts for the Croatian torta Hrapocusa, or  Dol Cake. The almond cake supports a massise walnut topping, all held together with loads of sugar and eggs.

Well this is officially my first Croatian recipe here on CulturEatz! Not only that but the torta Hrapocusa specifically comes from a small village of Dol, on the Croation island of Brac. You and I may have never heard of it before, but over there the cake is a huge deal.  They say every family in Dol has their own secret recipe. And there is an annual Night of Hrapocusa event where the population goes from about 100 inhabitants to over a 1,000 people.

Let’s find out more about this very popular cake (which I turned into ‘cupcakes’).
