Žemlovka (Moravian dialect: zemlbába) is a sweet dish 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.


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 put above. Several layers are made. The top layer is always pastry.

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

The žemlovka can be eaten both warm and cold.
