Szatmári plum cake

Every year a special birthday cake is prepared to celebrate our country's foundation. The National Guild of Hungarian Confectioners selects the best recipe submitted by confectioners from all over Hungary. This year the Zila Coffee House - Krisztina Confectionery's recipe for Szatmári plum cake won.

And finally yesterday before I've tasted it! It was very delicious. I recommend you try it on day!

The cake is made with the fragrant Hungaricum the plum brandy (pálinka) from Szatmár region. Szatmári szilvapálinka is very famous and popular. Look at the advertisement boat on the Lake Balaton :)

PS: Last year the floating island cake (or bird's milk cake) was the birthday cake of Hungary. And it'd became my personal fave :)

We had a slice of the cake yesterday- it was yummy. It was a little like a Dundee cake for those in the UK.
