Hungarian Gerbeaud Cake (Zserbó szelet)
Gerbeaud cake is probably the best known Hungarian dessert. I am sure if you hear the name of Hungarian Gerbeaud, you associate with the Café Gerbeaud in heart of Budapest. But to me, this word “Gerbeaud” means this wonderful and delicious homemade layered cake with walnut and apricot jam filling, covered with chocolate. Christmas and Easter is just unimaginable without this excellent cake, I always make it with my Mom. This dessert was invented by a Swiss born French confectioner (Emil Gerbeaud) who lived and worked in Hungary.
