Cozonac – Romanian traditional dessert

Said it before and I’m gonna say it again: in my opinion, traditional food tastes way better than any other international food!

If you ever visit Romania, please try this Cozonac dessert that I’m talking about!

It’s the best thing you can do!

Meantime, use my recipe to try it yourself at home!

I’m looking forward to our feedback!
