Does anyone want a pastry? I know we do! I adore making pastries. Somehow every time I make them, I am able to pretend like I’m sitting in a little café in Paris and no one can bother me. Not to mention, they’re great for when you want something sweet for breakfast!

Today, I decided to make bohemian kolaches. The pastries are originally a Czech pastry and they have a lot of similarities to danishes — my favorite breakfast food! 

Today, we want to show you our favorite bohemian kolache recipe! So settle in and let’s get to baking!

Kolache Recipe


  • 2 packages of active dry yeast

  • ½ cup of sugar

  • 2 cups of warm 2% milk

  • 5 + ¾ or 6 + ½ cups of all-purpose flour

  • 4 large egg yolks

  • 1 tsp of salt

  • ¼ cup of butter (softened)

  • 2 cups of canned prune, poppy seed, cherry, or lemon pie filling

  • 1 large egg white (beaten)


  1. In a small bowl, dissolve the yeast and 1 tablespoon sugar in warm milk. Let it stand for 10 minutes. 

  2. In a large bowl, combine 2 cups flour, the remaining sugar, egg yolks, salt, butter, and the yeast/milk mixture. Mix everything together until it’s smooth. Add enough remaining flour to make a stiff dough. 

  3. Turn the mixture out onto a floured surface and knead until smooth and elastic, about 6-8 minutes. Add additional flour if necessary. Place dough in a greased bowl, turning it once to grease top. Cover the bowl and let it rise in a warm place until it has doubled in size, about 1 hour. 

  4. Punch dough down and allow to rise again. Roll out onto a floured surface to 1/2-inch thickness. Cut the dough with a large glass or 2-1/2-inch cutter. Place the pastries on the greased baking sheets and let them rise until they double in size, about 45 minutes. 

  5. Firmly press an indentation in the center of each pastry and fill each roll with a heaping tablespoon of filling. Brush dough with egg white. Bake at 350° for 10-15 minutes or until rolls are light golden brown.
