    MizEmerilLagasse's Note:

    This is a traditional Hungarian recipe that I have learned to make from my Hungarian fiance who misses this from home. Until meeting him I don't think I truly understood what great desserts should be.

      If you make it in a big baking pan, it should be only about an inch thick...then when it cooled down, you spread some jam on it (apricot the best) and roll it up with a help of a damp dishrag...slowly so it won't crack... dust top with powdered sugar and slice.... it's super easy I made it when I was like 12 :)
