Easy Yeast Dough/Hungarian Cake/Dessert

Morcash Sweat

By

This is our traditional Christmas, Hungarian sweet dessert that comes from my grandmother’s Hungarian roots. It starts as a breakfast sweet roll, then later it is a lunch or dinner dessert eaten like a semi-sweet cake. It’s filled with a nut filling and to sweeten it, we pour a powdered sugar icing all over it.
The dough can be shaped into a cross at Easter or a wreath at Christmas. We put candied fruit cherries on top too.
