Mézes tészta – Honey-vanilla squares

by | Mar 18, 2015 | Desserts

As I haven’t found better translation for mézes tészta, I decided to use the term honey-vanilla squares. Honey-flavoured cakes are very mouth-watering, but you have to be very patient until the first bites since these desserts need at least an entire day to soften enough and become enjoyable.

Making mézes tészta is time-consuming enough, so if you don’t have time for the whole process and don’t want to do it hurry-scurry, you may as well bake the cake layers one day earlier. The quantity of the filling may seem little, but in this case it doesn’t need to be dominant, custard only has the role to “tune up” and make the cake soft.

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.
