Mézes zserbó – Honey Gerbeaud slices

by | Nov 11, 2016 | Desserts

Mézes zserbó and classic Gerbeaud slices have only 2 things in common: both of them are made up of 4 cake layers and topped with chocolate glaze. Contrary to classic zserbó the dough of this confection is made with baking powder and honey, and filled with a vanilla-rum butter cream.

Mézes zserbó also resembles mézes krémes, which is made likewise, but its filling is different: the layers are spread with a semolina cream and apricot jam. Similar to mézes krémes, mézes zserbó is enjoyable after at least 12 hours of chilling because the cake layers need quite long time to soften.

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.
