Gibanica, also called Medimurje gibanica is a traditional Croatian cake baked for special occasions. I would say it’s a cake that has contains of the dearest ingredients from traditional Croatian cakes, all combined into one. Several different layers make it really rich, but it is not complicated to prepare at all.
In the past, gibanica used to be baked in clay dishes, but today it is simply baked in large rectangular pans. It is equally good warm and cold, but I recommend serving it warm.
