Sweet: More Hungarian Cakes to Love

 

Who doesn't love a delicious European cake?

Don't answer that, because it's rhetorical. Everyone loves a delicious European cake. And recently, I received a message from a CakeSpy reader in Hungary who approved of the fact that I had already mentioned several Hungarian cakes on the site over the years, and was eager to introduce me to some more. I was happy to make the acquaintance, and I'd like to introduce you to the cakes, too.

Here's the message I received: Love your long list of famous cakes,especially,because you have named 3 of my favourite hungarian desserts (Dobos torta, Zsrebó and Gundel palacsinta). As I'm Hungarian, myself I feel well proud of our culinary cake culture. If you want to extend your list,here is a couple of more famous cakes:

 

Eszterházy szelet (Esterhazy slice)-named after a wealthy hungarian family which was a big supporter of art and gastronomy. Layers of walnut pastry filled with cream,and covered with a fondant layer with feather motives.Yum!

 

Somlói galuska (Sholmoy Dumpling)--initially knoked up by Karoly Gollerits- the head waiter from Gundel Restaurant-as he  was in an urgent need for a dessert,and only found:vanilla sponge,nuts,choclate sauce and cream-his quick fix since then become a staple desserts for everey hungarian patisserie.
