Hungarian varga beles (noodle cake)
I`m half hungarian from my mother`s side and that explains the fact that I know and I post many hingarian recipes. This one, varga beles also known by some as noodle cake, is a sweet combination. I`m not sure if we can say it`s a cake, it`s a combination between cake and food. The basic idea is that it`s very tasty and yummy.
The ingredients you need are:
- 1 kg fresh white cheese
- 800 gr noodles of ribbon pasta
- 8 eggs
- 200 gr raisins
- 8 spoons flour
- 400 gr sugar
- juice from 1 lemon
- a spoon vanilla sugar
First boil the noodles in salted water, as you usualy boil the noodles or pasta. Then, beat the eggs just like you beat them for scrambled eggs. Then mingle well all the ingredients, including the noodles (after they`re boiled and cooled).
Put the composition in a tray. Use some baking paper so the cake doesn`t stick to the bottom of the tray. Put it in the oven for about 20-30 minutes, depending on your oven. On top, you can put some dried crust.
If you`re not a raisin fan, you can make varga beles or noodle cake without them. Enjoy :)
