Happy Easter 2020.

A recipe from Arena Hotels - Arena Hospitality Group -

We are certain that better days are ahead of us.  

Until then, we are inviting you to join our virtual Easter table and enjoy a very traditional and modest Istrian cake that is being baked for decades in Istrian households for Easter. Give it a try and allow its beautiful scent to bring you back to us, at least for a moment.


• 1000 g of flour

• 6 egg yolks

• 100 ml of milk

• 200 g of sugar

• 10 g of pork lard

• 5 g of butter

• 8 g of yeast

• Lemon rind

• Pinch of salt

• Vanilla sugar


Mix yolks with sugar and vanilla sugar in a pot placed over hot water. Add flour and activated yeast, lard, melted butter, lemon rind, and salt. Make a smooth dough, let it double in size.

Shape the dough into several pieces. Work each piece into a sausage shape, and from that, work it into a ring-like shape and let it rise for 30 minutes. Bake in a pre-heated oven for 12-15 minutes at 200 degrees Celsius.

While still hot, dip into milk and frost with sugar.

Until we meet again, stay safe.
