Kristina, my Serbian-born friend shared this recipe with me. Every time I visited Belgrade, I would eat this cornbread served with a bowl of soup with great pleasure. And I liked it so much that I asked Kristina to share her recipe with me. She told me that that was proja – a traditional Serbian dish, usually cooked by Serbian housewives.

I highly recommend you to try cooking proja yourself. These pretty yellow buns with such a pleasant flavor are perfect for a dinner table.

Besides, it is so easy to cook – just mix and bake!
