Mézes krémes

by | Feb 12, 2015 | Desserts

Mézes krémes is a delectable dessert, which is an excellent representative of those typical Hungarian cakes that are made from kneaded dough and cooked filling. Mézes krémes is a honey flavoured pastry filled with semolina cream and apricot jam.

This dessert requires very slim cake layers, so in order to be able to roll out the dough balls easily, you have to heat the ingredients and after kneading dough has to be kept warm (if dough cools, due to its honey content it will be firm and inelastic). As the layers tend to shrink during baking, they need to rolled out a bit larger than the baking sheet.

After assembling the cake, it should spend a night in the fridge to become soft and mellow. Making this dessert can be a bit tricky, but tiding over it will increase your self-confidence.

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.
