Italian Bakery of Virginia

★★★★★
Baking Potica each day is a time-consuming project, as it requires the careful hands of a proficient baker. Due to the fact it has to be hand-rolled, pulled and stretched, using a rolling machine is not an option. After rolling, the dough covers a large kitchen table, where it is ready for the special mix of ground walnuts, pure creamy butter, brown sugar, whole eggs, pure vanilla and natural spices (no preservatives). Rolled into a spiral and shaped like a loaf, we slowly bake it for an extensive period of time in pans made especially for The Italian Bakery of Virginia.

    The Poticas at Italian Bakery are wonderful! I order them quite frequently. The staff that takes my order is always friendly and helpful. It's great that you can order them and have them delivered since I don't live in the area.

    This bakery is fantastic! They have fresh, delicious bakery items. They have world famous potitcia, a local delicacy! They get orders worldwide for this product, especially during the holidays - people who grew up in Virginia remember the potitca and order it to shipped thru the mail. They have a small area to sit and eat your bakery purchase, with coffee, juice and milk. Many regulars go there daily, to eat and visit with each other. They do orders for weddings, funerals, showers, parties, etc. A full service bakery, with an excellent reputation!!

    More about Italian Bakery of Virginia

    The origin of the Potica recipe that The Italian Bakery of Virginiat tells is a fascinating story. Early in the 20th century, a woman name Mary Janezich provided her son-in-law, Geno Maraccini, with the family recipe. She thought her prized family recipe would make a delightful treat in Geno’s new bakery. Sure enough, Mary was dead-on with her assessment and today, the recipe is the bakery’s most popular item. Years later, when Joe and Bette Prebonich purchased the bakery from Geno and his brother Guido, they added their own personal touch to the recipe. Joe's Croatian mother liked her walnut Potica made with raisins, so needless to say, our bakery now offers walnut Potica and walnut raisin Potica. These treats have a truly authentic taste, which is what you would expect from a recipe that was honed in the kitchens of women who learned to bake it before immigrating to America.
