Like the alma (apple) the körte ("KUHR-TE") is cultivated widely and in several varieties in Hungary, most notably the vilmos körte (Williams or Bartlett pear, pronounce "VEELMOSH KUHR-TE"). Its widespread use for making pálinka (fruit brandy) is such that any pálinka made from pear is often called simply vilmos körte.

but honestly I prefer the fresh vilmoskörte like fruit :)

Every year a special birthday cake is prepared to celebrate our country's foundation. The National Guild of Hungarian Confectioners selects the best recipe submitted by confectioners from all over Hungary. This year the Zila Coffee House - Krisztina Confectionery's recipe for Szatmári plum cake won.
And finally yesterday before I've tasted it! It was very delicious. I recommend you try it on day!
The cake is made with the fragrant Hungaricum the plum brandy (pálinka) from Szatmár region. Szatmári szilvapálinka is very famous and popular. Look at the advertisement boat on the Lake Balaton :)
PS: Last year the floating island cake (or bird's milk cake) was the birthday cake of Hungary. And it'd became my personal fave :)

Last Tuesday was our 8th wedding anniversary. For this occasion I wanted to surprise my husband with an "8" form cake. But my children pressured me to create a "teddy bear" cake. :) And I 'accepted' their influence :)
I never thought before, that I would be waiting for my husband with a teddy bear cake :)
The recipe is similar like my Hedgehog cake recipe, but now I prepared the cake with punch flavor. Try it!
