Makes 16 pogacas.
  • 2+3/4 cups of all purpose flour
  • 3/4 cup of warm milk
  • 1/4 cup of vegetable oil
  • 1 egg white
  • 3 tbsp of granulated sugar
  • 1 tbsp of salt
  • 1 tsp of yeast
  • 1/2 cup of feta cheese
    • 1 egg yolk
    • nigella and sesame seeds
     Mix all of the dry ingredients in a large mixing bowl. Add milk, vegetable oil and egg white. Knead them all together with your hands until becoming dough. The dough should be sticky. Cover the bowl with plastic wrap and let it rest until the dough rises to double its size. It takes one to two hours.

    In a small bowl, put some vegetable oil. Damp your hands with this vegetable oil before touching the dough. That way, the dough will not stick to your hands. It also give them a nice taste too. 
    Take the bowl and knead the dough again until it is bubble free. Take a small piece of dough ( about the size of an egg) and make it flat with your hands.Place 1 tbs of feta cheese in the middle of the dough and close it up.  Place them on a baking tray and let them rise for half an hour.

    Preheat the oven to 350F. Brush all of the pogacas with egg yolk and sprinkle nigella and sesame seeds on top. Bake them until the color of egg yolk turns to brown.

    I think this recipe is wrong. I just made it and it was too salty and didn't rise. I believe it should be 1tsp salt and 1tbsp yeast. Please correct the recipe so no one else makes this mistake. They were not edible as the recipe is posted.
