Tejes pite. If you like palacsinta (Hungarian pancakes, crepes), you'll love this pie.
Ingredients for about 4 servings
1 liter milk
250 g flour
100 g sugar
10 g vanilla sugar
1 teaspoon salt
Butter or margarine to grease baking pan
Apricot jam, confectioner sugar for decoration
: 15 minutes + 60 minutes baking time
: Heat oven to 280 °C.
In a large bowl, mix flour, salt, sugar and vanilla sugar. In a small bowl combine well beaten eggs and milk. Add egg and milk gradually to flour mixture, beating to a smooth pancake-like batter, just a bit thicker. Coat the bottom of the baking pan with margarine or butter and pour the dough into it. Bake it for 1 hour, until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean.
When the pie is done, cool for a few minutes, then cut into 8-10 bars. Sprinkle with confectioner sugar and add a spoonful of apricot jam or/and bottled apricot.
- Use hand mixer to get smooth batter.
- Do not add baking powder or baking soda.
- Do not make a thick pie, because the dough will remain raw inside.
- To create a more provocative flavor, add 1-2 teaspoon apricot-brandy to the apricot jam.
A Different Type of Hungarian Pie
I got this recipe from a good colleague.
This pie looks like we spent hours in the kitchen to make the custard and the top, but it is really simple to make it
. It all happens in the oven, by itself; no professional baking skills are necessary.
