Hungarian Desserts Ebook

Some Hungarian desserts became known all over the world because of their unparalleled tastes and creative appearances.

Talented masters like, József C. Dobos (creator of the Dobos torte), Emile Gerbeaud (owner of the legendary Gerbeaud Cafe in downtown Budapest, Vilmos Ruszwurm (founder of Ruszwurm Confectionery in Castle District), Rezső Hauer or József Auguszt laid the foundations of Hungarian confectionery more than a century ago.

They learnt the tricks of the trade from Italian and French confectioners but always kept the Hungarian tastes in mind.

Although I didn’t have the opportunity to learn baking from great masters of the trade, I’ve had my own talented bakery tutors who taught me the basics as well as the subtleties of making Hungarian desserts:

  • my mom
  • my mother in law, and
  • my husband’s grandmother

As a Hungarian housewife and mother of two sweet-toothed kids, I make cakes and pastries every week. The numerous family occasions and holidays like Christmas or Easter also provide me a good excuse to try out new dessert recipes.

I collected and written down my favourite Hungarian dessert recipes in this e-book.
