Hungarian cake, how do we prepare it, how do we make the filling?

The filling is spread on the dough in a generous layer, this is a feature of this baigli. I added flavors and raisins, but you can also add cinnamon or orange peel. I also saw fillings that also contained apricot or even orange jam. It is very important for this Hungarian cake not to let the dough rise, because this way it will crack in the oven. To prevent this, the dough is kept in the refrigerator at all times, both after kneading and filling. Especially since after filling it, we have to grease it twice, once with egg yolk, and the second time with egg white.

The Hungarian baigli cake can be cracked in the oven, and to reduce this, we have to prick the cozonacs before putting them in the oven. There is still the possibility of it cracking anyway, but it is not a problem, it is normal for this to happen. After baking, the bagels must be allowed to cool to room temperature, otherwise they will crumble when cut. Keep the baigli wrapped in plastic wrap to stay fresh for as long as possible. I kept them in the fridge, but they can also be kept in a cooler pantry or on the balcony, if it's not hot outside.

The first leavening of the dough for fluffy cakes with shit and walnuts

The dough will be left to rise for about half an hour, in the heat. The dough will rise and acquire a fluffier consistency than it used to have before.

We put the small pieces of shit, raisins & icircnmuiate & icircn rum essence and the composition obtained from crushed walnut, cocoa, sugar and rum. Roll each piece and then intertwine them together. Put in a tray and leave to rise for about an hour. Grease with egg yolk, sprinkle with sugar and put halves of walnuts on top, then put in the oven.

  • Mix the yolks with the salt, it will accentuate the yellow color more.
  • Use fresh, good quality yeast.
