September 17, 2018 – Sweet Korčula, an island with a seemingly endless supply of fabulous traditional home-made cakes and desserts. We are very grateful to Franica Tasovac for allowing us to serialise her excellent books called Sweet Korcula, Sweeties of Korcula Grannies (in English). It is a collection of no less than 30 ancient recipes for Korcula cakes and desserts, lovingly put together into a book. A delightful souvenir or gift for gourmet friends. Franica has kindly allowed us to serialise the recipes on TCN, and we will be bringing you a recipe a week from the kitchens of Korcula’s grandmothers throughout the year. You can read Claudia Tarle’s lovely introduction here.

5 eggs

5 tablespoons sugar

1 tablespoon brandy of roses

5 tablespoons flour

zest of one lemon

powdered sugar

Heat the oven to 160°C.

Mix eggs and sugar (a long time). Add brandy and lemon zest into the frothy mixture.
