Here's the recipe for my delicious Yuletide holiday svaijko. It is a very old, traditional Romany holiday recipe, in my own freely adapted modern version. I use to bake it for my family every year at Christmas, and it is always well appreciated. It's perhaps not the absolutely most healthy pastry there are, but with a good and healthy diet all year round, I think you can deserve to treat yourself to this delicacy once a year at Christmas. (It also works very well to swap out the dairy ingredients for vegan alternatives, if you are able to find any where you live. And it also works to use some alternative sweetener if want to avoid sugar.)

This is how you make it: 


For the dough
25 grams of yeast
60 grams of margarine
2.5 deciliters of water
0.5 deciliters of sugar
1 liter of flour

For the filling
100 grams of sour cream
100 grams of margarine
200 grams of sweet chocolate

Mix the yeast, margarine, water sugar and flour in a bowl so that you get a firm dough. 

In another bowl, mix sour cream, sugar and raisins. 

Roll out the dough so that it is flattened, and spread the filling all over it. Shred the chocolate all over.  Roll up the dough into a cylinder shaped roll - but carefully, so that the filling does not leak. 

Brush the roll with margarine, and spread some sugar all over it. 

Bake it in the oven at 200 degrees Celsius (390 degress Fahrenheit) for about 40 minutes, until the roll is relatively firm inside. 

Chop up the roll into appropriate pieces. 

Serve it as a snack after the Christmas dinner, and you Christmas feast will be an even greater success!
Good luck!
