Molnárka

by | Mar 9, 2016 | Breads, buns & biscuits

Making bakery products at home always reminds me of the good old days. Today’s mass production just verifies my opinion that (almost) everything was better in the past. The large product assortments of bakeries attract customers like magnet, you can easily get lost in the jungle of bagels, croissants and baguettes (albeit most Hungarians still revolve round the bread rolls – crescent axis).

Many old fashioned breadstuffs, however, have fallen victim to cost effectiveness, there are only a few bakeries (you need a lantern to find them) that spare neither trouble nor pains to keep traditions alive. One of those bakery products that have been long since forgotten is molnárka, which is a kind of bread rolls. Molnárka means soft and sweetish, oval shaped buns, whose dough resembles kalács (sweet bread). These buns go well with Easter ham, but they also make a great sandwich.

If you are looking for a Hungarian recipe that hasn't been published on this website yet, let me know, and I'll do my best to post it.

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.
