Cozonac Featured in
This traditional sweet bread made of flour, eggs, milk, butter, sugar, and salt is filled with nuts and cocoa and is baked and consumed at most three times a year—for Easter, New Year, and particularly at Christmas. Carol singers often receive it as a present. Besides nuts and cocoa, other popular fillings include: raisins, dried fruits, sweet cheese, marmalade, and even Turkish delight is common. The shape can be also different—rectangular, oval, round, or interlaced—cozonac's delicious taste is not affected by the shape.
