Like Croatia Sinke

It’s time for you to be introduced to Croatia’s sweet side. As the name suggests, Skradin Cake comes from the Mediterranean town of Skradin, located in Sibenik-Knin County, on the right banks of Krka River. The settlement can trace its history up to 6000 years in past, which is plenty of time to develop taste for fine food.

The recipe for Skradin Cake was given to us by Arka Bistro, which you can visit on your own in the local ACI Marina. It takes about 80 minutes to finish the preparation, and up to six people can enjoy the single cake.

Skradin Cake Preparation

Combine the honey with egg yolks, adding grated almonds and walnuts. Insert lemon skin and all the remaining ingredients. Use egg whites to make a fine ‘cake snow’ and slowly combine them with the main mixture.

Put the mixture in the bowl for baking biscuits and put in the oven at 175 °C and leave for an hour. The final step is to coat the cake with dark chocolate, which was previously melted along with some sweet cream.
