This is a wonderful bread from Slovenia with a sweet, nutty filling. Due to the spelling and pronunciation (paw-tee'-tzah) it’s very hard to find the recipe.
In a small mixing bowl, dissolve yeast, 1 teaspoon sugar, and 3 tablespoons of the flour in warm milk. Mix well, and let stand until creamy, about 10 minutes.
In a large mixing bowl cream the butter with the remaining sugar. Add the egg yolks one at a time, beating well after each addition. Add the yeast mixture, remaining milk, 4 cups of flour and the salt; mix well. Add the remaining flour, 1/2 cup at a time, stirring well after each addition. When the dough has pulled together, turn it out onto a lightly floured surface and knead until smooth and elastic, about 8 minutes. Lightly oil a large bowl, place the dough in the bowl and turn to coat with oil. Cover with a damp cloth and let rise in a warm place until doubled in volume, about 1 hour.
Lightly grease one or two cookie sheets. Deflate the dough and turn it out onto a lightly floured surface. Divide the dough into two equal pieces and roll Out to 1/4 to 1/2 inch thickness. Spread each piece with melted butter, honey, raisins, walnuts and cinnamon. Roll each piece up like a jelly roll and pinch the ends. Place seam side down onto the prepared baking sheets. Let rise until double in volume. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).
Bake at 350 degrees F (175 degrees C) for about 60 minutes or until the top is golden brown.

Eating best breakfast to start the day has become a fabulous habit. It’s a fabolous way to start my 24 hours off healthfully. The sugar hit from the fruit wakes me up and bring me power to make on the morning. Sugar is often vilified as the root of all disease, but fruit is also loaded with fibre, which is best for your digestive system and helps keep you feel full longer, and less likely grab a snack out of the vending machine before lunchtime.
Making fruit a morning habit is simple . Easy as put the sweetness in your fridge next to the sweet drink or on the table next to your cereal bowl , or beside your coffee maker or tea kettle — about anywhere where you’ll find it. Before you eat the rest of your breakfast , eat your fruit. If you’re not usually a breakfast person.
