The best way to start my baking bohemian blog is with a recipe from my great grandmother who really was a Bohemian – from Bohemia back when it was actually a country.

It is a sweet yeast bread. You must have fresh yeast, and it works better with proper bakers flour.  Wal, the very not-bohemian man about the house, will eat a whole loaf in one hit, which is good because it is best super fresh.

All of the  Bohemian families I knew grew up eating hoska but my family’s hoska was the best ever.

  1. It sounds like you grew up in a wonderful family with traditions. You can see it and feel it in your posts. Thank you for sharing!

  2. I love making houska, I put raisin’s and almonds in mine but I use all purpose flour and almost 10 cups. Tomorrow I am going to try Bibi’s apple strudel
