Excellent desserts from a Hungarian bakery: the famous Žerbó rezy and Doboš torta come from our southern neighbors.

Hungarians know how to eat. This is proven by the traditional desserts, which found their way not only to us, but are also known all over the world.

So, like that! Truly selected desserts come from our southern neighbors, who have also found a regular place in our sweets schedule. They are close to us thanks to the same local ingredients and the unique flavor they contain.

Let’s imagine or at least remember some of the most famous desserts from Hungary.

Flódni: this traditional cake, with its layering of dough and various fillings, resembles the popular Štedrák. However, here we use pasta instead of pasta and there is no cottage cheese. But it’s still a rich and delicious cookie.
