Description

Prunes have a rough reputation, usually accompanied by a Mr. Yuk face... but prune lekvar filling makes a fantastic kolachi that you have to taste to really appreciate. They're not as popular as walnut, but if prune kolachi was your tradition these should bring back sweet memories! A perfectly balanced prune lekvar has just the right amount of sweet & tart creamy taste, similar to the apricot lekvar filling in our apricot kolachi.

Lekvar is the old world term for fruit butter or jam, and is usually associated with prunes. Szilvalekvár is prune/plumb jam. Lekvar was traditionally prepared in the fall when fruits ripened. Popular Eastern European lekvars are apricot, apple, plumb, raspberry, peach, cherry and strawberry.

Please Note: Just as our apricot kolachi, prune bakes flat in comparison to the walnut flavors, and the filling can run out of the top, sides and bottom. This is normal and does not affect the quality or taste in any way. Even with loss of filling, they still weigh 24 oz as intended.

Each roll comes whole, not sliced - about 14" long. Slice to preferred thickness, usually between 18-28 slices. May freeze up to 6 months.

INGREDIENTS: INGREDIENTS: UNTREATED WHEAT FLOUR, BUTTER, WATER, SUGAR, EGGS, MILK, SEA SALT, YEAST. FILLING: WATER, SUGAR, PRUNES, APPLE POMACE, CARAMEL COLOR AND 2% OR LESS OF EACH OF THE FOLLOWING: CORN STARCH, SALT, CITRIC ACID, PRESERVATIVES (SODIUM BENZOATE, POTASSIUM SORBATE), PROPYLENE GLYCOL. Nutrition Facts

Welcome Treat
I surprised my husband with the prune kolachy roll and he was thrilled! It was just like his mother used to make and he ate the whole thing! I enjoyed the honey walnut kolachy as well as the apricot cookies. We were so pleased with all that we ordered. Outstanding!

Lekvar really takes me back!
I’m from Cleveland area originally and have moved to Indiana. No one knew what I was talking about when I asked about Lekvar. Thank goodness I found your bakery from an ad I saw while visiting home. Your products are the best ever and my husband is thrilled with your Lekvar, prune, filling. Don’t change a thing!

My dad's favorite roll is the prune!
My dad's mom is the grandma who made what she called walnut bread as well as several other tasty treats, including krapfen. She made this krapfen with prune, primarily, and it is where I developed an affinity towards prunes and prune confections, just for their flavor. Though a different consistency than the krapfen, the flavor of this prune kolachi was divine!

Lekvar
Had one lekvar that did not look like the pictures posted. Had lots of dough and was very dry. The birds had a ball with the rest of the roll after we had a piece each(2). Sorry but the other rolls nut apricot and poppy seed were really good.

For years I've thought about the nut, lekvar, poppy seed and walnut rolls my best friend, Adele's mom baked at Easter. Myself coming from a just off the boat "Johnny Bull" family, no one baked those rolls.I saw your ad, gambled and got those memories back! The rolls were delicious and I plan on getting more.

Only okay
I have loved levkar since I was a child, but the filling in this roll was only okay. Not quite as flavorful as I am used to, and could have been a bit sweeter. I ordered several Butter Maid items for the Easter holiday, and loved every other item. But this one? Not so much, and will not order again.

First Order
I have always used my mom's recipe for the nut, poppy and apricot rolls but time and a family member's dietary restrictions became an issue so I stopped making them. When I visited your website, I was so excited to see the Lekvar so I placed my order. Dough is close to my mom's and the Lekvar filling is wonderful. Also ordered the apricot and it is delicious too. Have not cut into the nut or poppy yet - saving them to have as dessert the next time I make a Hungarian dinner for friends. I am so happy to have found your bakery!!
