    twissis's Note:

    This is my final recipe from *Stroganov to Strudel* (Great Traditional Cooking From Germany, Austria, Hungary & the Czech Republic). Every *finale* should be a yummy dessert, right? So I chose to spotlight the Hungarian cuisine w/this recipe that had a stunning pic & IMO resembles (in flavor) the German pancakes usually eaten for breakfast. Per the intro: "Pancakes in Hungary were originally very basic food (made w/only cornflour & water) & then cooked over an open fire. The relative absence of ovens accounts for today's great variety of pancake recipes (both sweet & savory) in this part of the world. This unusual layered pancake Gateau is just 1 example of this tradition." *Enjoy* !

    4. 4
      Using a non-stick crepe or frying pan as near to the size of your prepared cake tin as possible, lightly grease it with 1/2 tbsp of the remaining melted butter & use a pastry brush to spread over the surface.
    5. 5
      Ladle 1/4 of the batter into the pan & fry the thick pancake on ea side till golden brown. Then slide it into the prepared cake tin. Repeat process using 1/2 tbsp of the melted butter ea time to make 3 more pancakes in the same way & set them aside while you make the filling.

    12. 12
      PERS NOTE: This may horrify more purist & experienced pastry chefs, but I'm really into prep made easy. While entering this recipe, I kept thinking to myself -- Since we're using a non-stick crepe or frying pan for the pancakes, why not use spray PAM (butter flavored if that settles your mind) vs the butter? Just a thought :-).
