Mákos guba

Poppy Seed Bread Pudding

Mákos Guba at Café Kör Budapest

Mákos guba (“MACK-OSH GOOBA”) is a popular Hungarian dessert made from pieces of bread soaked in milk or custard (often infused with vanilla) and topped off with heaping mounds of mák (poppy seeds) and sugar. Traditionally a Christmas dessert, but there’s no reason not to eat it year-round. Indeed, the dish is popular/common enough that there is even a restaurant in Budapest named after it.

The above picture of a serving of mákos guba is from this March, 2007 item on Budapest’s Café Kör restaurant.
