Žemlovka (Moravian dialect: zemlbába) is a sweet bread pudding made of apples and rohlíks or veka which are soaked by sweet milk.

Another variant uses pears instead of apples. The meal is a traditional part of Czech and Slovak cuisine and often appears in canteen offer.

Preparing[edit]

Rohlík or veka are sliced and are immersed in into milk that is flavoured by sugar, vanilla sugar and ground cinnamon. A layer of wet pastry is put in the bottom of a roaster; a layer of fruit is spread on top. Several layers are stacked; the top layer is always pastry.

Fruit is sprinkled with sugar or raisins. The mixture is baked until a golden crust forms on the top.

The žemlovka can be eaten both warm and cold.
