Hungarian Coconut Balls
I live here in Budapest as a missionary and these coconut balls are so good they are in almost every little cake store in the city. If you'd rather, you can substitute rum for the rum extract.
Hungarian Coffee Cake
This is my mom's recipe and one of my favorites for breakfast; love it warm out of the oven.
Hungarian Cucumber Salad
Great salad to make when you have a ton of cucumbers coming out of the garden. We make this year round but we are real cuke lovers in this family. Let it sit for a few days in the fridge and it's even better! Great make-ahead dish for BBQs and parties.
Streamline Hungarian Torte
This is a recipe handed down from my mother, it is a family favorite requested at all gatherings and pot lucks.
Kalacs (Hungarian Cinnamon Swirl Bread)
My husband's aunt passed along this super-easy recipe for this Hungarian sweet bread, and I made a couple of revisions to my family's taste. Cinnamon, poppy seed, or walnuts are a traditional filling. Her recipe is for cinnamon, but one of my favorite ways is to break from tradition and use a cocoa/sugar/butter/vanilla mixture. It's delicious, especially when the leftovers are toasted and buttered!
Hungarian Poppy Seed Filling
This is a filling often used for Middle European kolacs (also called kolacky or kolachke)--filled, rolled, baked yeast dough--and sweet rolls.
