Somlói galuska

Somló-style Sponge Cake

Somlói galuska

Somlói galuska (“SHOM-LO-I GAL-OOSH-KAH”) is a popular Hungarian dessert from the Somló region. It is made by layering chocolate and vanilla sponge cake with vanilla custard, raisins, walnuts, chocolate sauce, rum and a generous topping of whipped cream. Similar to a trifle, it tastes better once it has been left to set.

The above picture of a serving of Somlói galuska was taken at Budapest’s Dunapark Café and Restaurant in February, 2008.
