Hungarian cottage cheese bundles

by | Sep 4, 2015 | Breads, buns & biscuits

I was seeking for a dessert recipe in my cookbooks when the description of these lovely cottage cheese bundles got into my hands. I last baked them years ago, so it was time to dust off the recipe and greet the fragrant túrós batyu (this is how it is called in Hungarian) in my home again. The bundles are made from a light yeast dough, filled with soft, vanilla flavoured cottage cheese cream. I can’t imagine them without raisins, but I know many people can’t stand the raisin’s taste, so this ingredient may be left out.

Hungarian cottage cheese

This is what Hungarian túró looks like

You often ask me what kind of cottage cheese (or curd cheese or farmer's cheese - call it what you want) I use in the recipes. In Hungary the store-bought cottage cheese is dry and crumbly as you can see in the picture. So if a recipe calls for túró, I mean this type. If you can't obtain túró, you can try to make your own from whole milk. Click on the link below.

Metric system vs cup

In Hungary metric units are in use, all the recipes on this website are based on this system, so a kitchen scale is necessary. Since I’m not familiar with cup as a measurement unit, I convert grams to cups by using an online converter. The values in brackets, therefore, are only approximate volumes, so, please, double-check them before you start cooking.
