Lazy woman’s strudel / Lusta asszony rétese

by | Aug 23, 2016 | Desserts

Don’t be fooled by the name of this cake, it has nothing to do with the traditional strudel, it’s actually a fruity cottage cheese confection. It’s ideal for novice housewives and for those who suffer from a lack of time. It doesn’t require any preparation, you simply need to put the ingredients in layers in a baking pan. You can use any kind of fruit you have, and feel free to serve the “strudel” dusted with powdered sugar if it isn’t sweet enough.

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.
