Somlói galuska (shom-loh-ee gah-LOOSH-kah) is a delicious Hungarian trifle made with three different-flavored liqueur-soaked sponge cakes, pastry cream, raisins, walnuts, chocolate sauce, and topped with fresh whipped cream!

According to a legend, somlói galuska was named for a Hungarian master confectioner’s wife born in the Somló wine region. The pastry chef created the desert especially for her.

Hungarians love this rich, decadent desert and so do I! It’s served several different ways but is always delicious. It’s appropriately known as a “dieter’s nightmare,” but who cares?  Somlói galuska is even more popular than zserbo, another yummy Hungarian pastry made with walnuts and chocolate sauce.
