Hey y’all and welcome back to Tradition in the Kitchen for Episode 2. Last week, we heard a lot about the stories and the traditions of kolaches. I bet you are wondering how you can make these delicious pastries.
Well, you are in luck because this episode really gets into the top-secret recipe of my family’s kolaches…
Kolash? Kolach? Kolack?
There are so many different ways to say kolache. There are also so many different ways that you can make these delicious breakfast desserts. As a family, we wanted to have the recipe written down so that we could try making kolaches on our own. My Nana then sat down and recorded the ingredients she uses as well as the specific measurements of her mother’s original recipe. And now, I am going to gift it to you!
Recipes and traditions were meant to be shared because what brings people together more than food? This recipe has taken a lot of time and effort, a lot of trial and error, and a lot of batches of kolaches.
Do not be afraid of messing up the first time. As you will hear in today’s episode, everyone has messed up at some point. I mean who knew that you were supposed to let the dough rise two or even three different times depending on the kind of kolache? Nana says that her secret is just years and years of practice, and someone like Papa to help her out!
Tune in to hear Nana’s tips and tricks to making the best kolaches I have ever tasted. Also, listen for live reviews from friends and family who will get to share in our tradition.
Go ahead and pull up the recipe, clear your counters, grab your kolache cloths, and get ready to follow along!
