Hungarian Tart (Krummel Tert)


Hungarian tart or krummel tert, is a soft crumbly biscuit like cake similar to the short crust pastry. It can be filled with jam of any flavour. Substitute the jam for apples to make an apple crumble. Serve on its own, with a scoop of ice cream or a dollop of whipped cream. I’m not sure where the name Hungarian tart originates from though, would be interested if anyone could shed some light on the origin of Hungarian Tart.
