Smile ISO Bosnian Bread (Lepinja) recipe

I am looking for the recipe to make Bosnian Bread also called Lapinja. It is the bread eaten with Cevaps/cevapcici. It is a chewy flat bread about 7" diameter and about 1/2" to 3/4" thick.

We ate this in Bosnia and parts of Croatia and love it. I have learned to make the cevaps using half ground lamb and half ground beef, onion, garlic, vegeta, soda water, pepper, and they are perfect!

Thank you in advance!!!!

Diners Drive-uns and Dives featured Bosnian bread a few nights back and I have yet to find a recipe that will reproduce what I saw as Bosnian bread. It looked like a big English muffin but more bready than crumbly....baking powder rather than yeast or maybe a combination of the two??? I want to try some of it my own self.

This looks like it may be what you want: Lepinja Recipe (translated into English!)

If you would like it in Bosnian or Russian let me know and I'll post the links for those.

Lepinja is made in a number of Balkan countries, here are some we had with spit roast pig we ate in Serbia a few weeks ago, the corn bread muffins shown are called Proja.
Lepinja is mainly for the original hamburger called pljeskavica the bosnians tend to eat it with cevapcici.Click image for larger version
