No worries. I just thought all peasant breads were unleavened. See what I don't know? hahaha

I love to bake bread. The smells throughout the house drives everyone mad. I make all kinds. Any recipies you would want to share would be appreciated.

Baking sourdough bread is my absolute favorite, with sourdough rye being tops on my list. I use a combination of dark and light rye. I will have to put that up, too, but it would not be appropriate on this thread.

Hello and Welcome!

The first thing I thought of was cabbage rolls, but don't know if that's something you eat in Hungary.
Is Moravia in your general area? I have an older friend who is of Moravian descent, and one of her husband's fave dishes was sweet peppers, leeks, and a little garlic, sauteed together in olive oil. You eat that with crusty bread, to soak up the juices.
I have added anchovies to that.

Hey hello again! I'm glad that I found so many ppl interested in the topic! :)

Martin! I'm sorry, but I don't have any recipes for bread, but I can check Hungarian sites and books for the recipe and translate! Just let me know, if u need it! Baking a bread with Garlic is not a bad idea, anyway! :)

If u meant cabbage rolls stuffed with some meat, than yes, it's a Hungarian food.

Moravia is not part of Hungary. After checking wikipedia, I got to know, that it's part of the Czech Republic. So it's not that far away, as it's still central Europe. :) That food you mentioned sounds interesting though. It could be a good starter for a dinner on Sunday! :)

There was a time when the Czechs and the Slovenskos were ruled by Hungary.

Cold cherry soup comes to mind Kranne. I've tried several of the other dishes that have been mentioned. Spatzle I think is the German name for the noodle concept. I spread the dough on the back of a cookie baking pan and then scrape off bits into boiling water - a few at a time. I especially like them with goulash.

Of course there are the pastries!! :) Oh yes, the fruit or nut filled pastries. Good recipes have no borders! with the internet and places such as discuss cooking I can find wonderful recipes from everywhere!

I must learn about the paprika you mentioned. I have what the container says is Hungarian Paprika but I'm not certain that it is the same. Thanks for asking and be ready to share a recipe or two!

Certainly there are Hungarians here - I well remember when the Soviet tanks rolled into your city to crush the rebellion. Yes, you are here, we are you and you are in us like it or not! :)

Kranne, does Dobos Torta mean anything to you. Please understand - I am not really a baker and my name should not be mentioned beside his. My Dobos Torte is not beautiful but it is a treat!

Have you ever checked into facebook.com? If you do please look me up. I am the David Cottrell living in Norwalk, Ohio USA. Right now my little photo is the same as I am using here - a Ukrainian and American flag together. No - not any Ukrainian in me other than what ever comes from being born here. Of course in Eastern Hungary there are Ukrainian and Hungarian populations mixed together I guess. Food mixes together. Everyone claims the best as their own! :))

Cold cherry soup: Of course I know it! Try to make it from apple or both! It's very good, especially on hot summer days!

By pastries u mean dumplings made of boiled potato and flour and the rest with some fruit in the middle? That's the favorite food of many hungarian children! :)

And of course, dobos torta is also a great food. To be honest, I've never been brave enough to try and bake one! I always buy it in the cake-shop.

About hungarian paprika: it looks like this:


Yes I'm on facebook, I'll check u!

pretty much all of my bread recipes have some kind of leavening in
them, but I do have a couple without it. I will PM you the recipe I
have, and a sourdough potato recipe as well. I know what you mean
about baking bread - it is just the best smell. especially on a cold
winter afternoon out here, along side a big pot of soup or stew.
it's the only thing about winter I will miss this year! somehow, the
smell of the bread just isn't the same with the a/c on!
I'll post those up later today - right now I have to go catch up on
laundry!

Really? I've always been pretty happy with them, especially with
the spicy and I don't always do spicy well! Anything is possible,
though. I imagine a lot of places cut their spices with flour or
cornstarch to save a buck! I just started using them because
they were recommended to me and Hungarian paprika is pretty
much unheard of where I live. the stuff you buy in the stores
here is crap. like rust colored sand.
