A fantastic dessert
The name is Somlói galuska which means something like Dumplings Somló-style, but I doubt it has anything to with the Somló Hill area. And it’s only called dumplings because of the form, but it’s actually basic sponge-cake with a twist.
Make a syrup from water, rum, vanilla extract, lemon peel and sugar.
You’ll also need vanilla custard made from egg yolks, milk, vanilla extract, and a little flour.
Place one sponge-cake on a tray, sprinkle with syrup and spread third of the custard on it.
Set the cake aside and prepare the chocolate syrup/topping : melt dark chocolate, add rum, sugar and vanilla to taste and a little water or milk. Heat until smooth then cool.
Cut pieces from the layered cake with a spoon (thus the dumplings), drip some chocolate syrup on them and top with whipped cream. I swear, it’s heavenly!
