boom de yada

Whole-wheat Croatian walnut roll (orehnjača, potica, povitica)

In my family, it's a tradition during the holidays to bake orehnjača; a loaf of bread with a sweet swirly filling of ground walnuts, sugar, vanilla, and cinnamon.

Sadly, my Baba isn't around anymore to bake this delicious bread (and I'm vegan now anyways), so it was up to me to figure out a vegan version for this year's loaf.

Not too bad for a first try, right? I think Baba would've been proud. :)
