Prekmurska Gibanica

   Prekmurska gibanica (Prekmurje layer pie) is a unique dessert classed among Slovenian national specialities. It is a traditional part of Prekmurje cuisine with no comparable dish in the whole of Slovenia.


It derives its name from the word “güba”, which means “fold” and refers to the characteristic layered composition that gives the gibanica its colourful look. Prekmurska gibanica is distinguished by a rich array of aromas and flavours as well as a pleasant sensation in the mouth evoking the feelings of softness, juiciness and richness.

Traditional recipe

Prekmurska gibanica is made to a unique recipe following a special preparation procedure. It is prepared with a base of shortcrust pastry covered by four different fillings (poppy seeds, curd cheese, walnuts and apples) in a fixed order with a layer of strudel pastry in between them. The fillings are repeated in the same order once again. On top of the last layer of filling there is a layer of strudel pastry sprinkled with cream to which an egg yolk has been added, alternatively, the top is simply coated with melted fat or oil. In past times, the gibanica was baked only in round earthenware moulds, and served in triangular slices. Nowadays, for economic reasons, the baking dish is usually rectangular, either earthenware or metal.
