Latgalian recipes: "Kļockas" with sweet cream sauce

This recipe is taken from "Īsakūd Latgolā", a program on Latvian Television exploring the culinary delights of the Latgale region in Latvia. Today's recipe is "kļockas", the crowning dish of any festive feast in Latgale.


15 g fresh yeast



250 ml warm milk

2 cups all-purpose flour

sunflower oil


for the sauce:

250 ml cream

250 ml milk




1. Put a pinch of salt and sugar into a bowl. Add the yeast and mix well.

2. Start gradually adding the flour. Knead the dough until no longer sticky. Then add the oil and knead some more. Use the oil to remove the dough from your hands.

3. Leave the dough to activate in a warm place.

4. When the dough has risen, shape it into small patties and bake in the oven until golden and crispy.

5. Add the cream, milk and sugar into a pan and bring to a boil. Throw in the “kļockas” and turn off the heat, allowing them to absorb some of the cream before serving.
