Learning How to Make Banitsa

One of the most typical and outstanding food from the Bulgarian cuisine is Banitsa.

Banitsa is a  very tasty pie filled with white cheese (sirene).

Ina, one of our mentors, taught us how to make a home-made Banitsa. We thank her a lot because it is definetly something  that we will take back home, remembering the taste of Bulgarian food.

We enclose the recipe with its respective photo, in order to exemplify all the steps. In this photo, we have ingredients for two banitsas, thus everything is doubled.

To make a good home-made Banitsa, we need:

  • 5 eggs
  • 1 package of crust
  • 1 pack sour milk – 400gr.
  • 400gr. white cheese (sirene)
  • 65gr. butter
  • 1 tea spoonful of baking soda


Now lets get started.

We crack the eggs in a bowl
Then we scramble the eggs
We add the sour milk, and mix again
Now we put the white cheese, and mix again
Finally we add half of the package of butter and of course, mix
We extend the crust, one by one, and we put the mixture we previously made all over
Then we roll it, and we repeat this process until we don’t have any more crusts
Once u put each roll of crusts in the pan, you should get something like this
Finally you put it in the oven at 200ºC, until it bakes
When it is done, you enjoy it with friends!!!

Making Banitsa was a very nice experience, we had a lot of fun and it was very tasty.

Here you can see how much we enjoyed:
