Hazelnut slab pie – Mogyorós béles

by | Dec 9, 2022 | Desserts

Nuts, as part of a balanced diet, are a good source of key nutrients, healthy fats, and protein, and eating them on a regular basis provides several health benefits. Like other nuts, hazelnuts are rich in nutrients and have a high content of protein, fats, vitamins and minerals. Hazelnuts’ unique taste and crunchy texture transform every food from ordinary to extraordinary. This hazelnut slab pie resembles my granny’s chocolate-walnut cake, it consists of two yeasted cake layers spread with apricot jam and a mixture of egg foam and ground hazelnuts.

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.
