Does it stop being Serbian if some ingredients are replaced? Olive oil for butter; soy, coconut, or almond milk for cow milk; etc?

I'm sorry, but I have to report of your intellectual rights abuse: there's a russian website that has your wonderful recipe without any links to its source. I think thieves of any kind should be pointed out and punished. Here's the website:

I decided to give it a go, it came out okay, I can't wait to try it! :D


i tried it and it looked great.....but I advice to add some oil to the dough and less butter for the stage before putting the bread in oven..thanks any way

I did a half recipe of this bread and did the best I could with the lack of instructions. The dough was dry and so I adjusted the milk. During the first proof, the dough never doubled in size, but only got slightly larger. I rolled it out and followed the remaining instructions. I set the oven temp to 375 F and baked it for about 25-30 min until it tested done. All in all it looked prettier than it tasted. Perhaps with a different recipe and the same technique would yield much better results? I'll definitely try this again, but use a different recipe.

Looks great, and I'm going to make it today!
One question though: What temperature is "medium heat oven"?
There is a lot of work involved, so I'm not keen on winging it on the temp!

Two more questions. My bread recipe is 5cp flour to 2cp water. This recipe calls for a 5/3 ratio, which makes a pretty liquidy dough. Is this correct?
Other question is do I need to knead this dough?

I lieu of any answers to my questions, I carried on as best I could.
The dough was so "loose", it was tough to deal with. I guessed that "medium oven heat" meant 350F. After 30 minutes, it was a nice light brown, and the eternal temp read 195 - which in normal bread means it's done.
When I went to remove it from the pan, it came apart in pieces due to the fact that it was still gooey inside! I suspect, I was correct in feeling the flour/liquid ratio was incorrect at 5:3.
I would like to hear from others who have attempted this, if you are able and willing!
