Correct spelling SZILVAS GOMBOC
Ah, thank you so much ! my grandma used to make these ALL the time and I couldn't figure out the spelling myself but your guess was as good as mine xD
Yes, this is very similar to my mother's recipe. I don't remember the farina, though, and she used prune preserves or lecvar instead of plums.
Yes! Yes! This is the recipe. This is how my Grandma made them. If you follow directions they turn out right. I hope Nancy won't be horrified but I just wanted some so bad I made it with stewed prunes. Not great. But I could tell that with real plums in season, the recipe is perfect. Okay, one caution here: If you don't like substantial, rustic peasant food, this is not for you. Think of it as big brunch food rather than delicate dessert.
These are called "Sylvas Gombots" -- spelling???? Anyway, my grandma used to make these and they are wonderful (though didn't use sugar cubes) -- my favorite -- I just bought some plums and will make these this wknd.
Sounds too complicated!
