"Mákos kifli"

mákos kifli

"Mákos kifli" is not the same like our "mákos guba". Mákos guba is a special Hungarian dessert made of crescent rolls, poppy seed and milk. While mákos kifli is a home made crescent roll stuffed with poppy seeds. The recipe of my "mákos kifli" dough is the same like the recipe of my cocoa snail dough.

Of course gofri is not a typical Hungarian food (it originates from Belgian), but I have got a gofri baker and I found a very good recipe on "Mindmegette" page, which is one of the most popular Hungarian recipe site.

After that I tried this recipe out, my 6 years old son said: "mummy you baked me The Cake of My Life" :)))

Let's take a look the recipe of the cake of my son's life :)

40 dkg flour, 1 tsp baking powder, 3 egg, 12 dkg butter, 1 pack vanilla sugar, 12 dkg sugar, little salt, half liter milk

1. Separate the yolks from the egg whites. Whip the egg white until stiff. Mix all other ingredients and then carefully, add the whipped egg white.
4. Bake in the gofri baker for 4 minutes (per piece).

I really love the sour cherry season :)

I do love the sour cherry season! And when the fresh sour cherry season is here then I must bake sponge cake with sour cherry as often as possible :)

You may find my sponge cake recipe here and here. But this time I added 2 or 3 tbs cocoa too and used another type of cake form. By the way we call this form "őzgerinc" in Hungarian which means "deer spine" form. If you also choose this form then the baking time will be a little bit longer.

What do you do if you are waiting for guests to arrive, but you forgot to go shopping and don't want or you don't have enough time to bake? Make pudding (different colours and flavours) and decorate with fruits!

The fresh fruit season has arrived :)


The fresh fruit season is here, and this is one of the reason why I love summer so much :)
