This is again an amazing dessert my Dear Mom came up with. It is a classic dessert, a great example of a Hungarian (what I am), simple, square-pan baked, layer cake.
Actually, it is between cake and pie, regarding it's texture, since the cake layer (base) is very fluffy and soft, but still, it is firmly holding the layer above it. Also, it is a thin base. We rather prefer to have a thick layer of grated apple layer with cinnamon and honey on top the the cake base, and to have a rather thick layer of meringue, which we like to make more exciting with adding berries into it.
Also, it is important to point out, that a large amount of poppy seed is in this recipe, but in case you live in a country where you cannot access such great amounts of poppy seed, I will strongly advise you to use for example almonds instead of poppy seeds. That will have a very delicious end result too.
Can you see all the layer above on the picture? I must tell you, diet or not, this is one of my favorites, and we literally cannot make enough of this. It is so light, so airy, when you bite into it it is like a warm explosion of autumn in your mouth. It fills the house with a scent of home and love and proves to be the best example of a home baked deliciousness.
I will not stop making this. No, I won't.
And after you try, I bet you won't stop either. :)
