I watched this confectionery prepared by a Hungarian chef. As with all Hungarian recipes, the amounts had to be converted into cups and tablespoons according to North American standards. I reduced the sugar content, because my first effort was a bit too sweet for my liking. [In the original recipe 1-2/3 cups of superfine sugar was used.] I used salted butter, which was a bit too salty when I whipped it up with the icing sugar, yes I replaced the superfine sugar as well, but as it turned out, the salted butter could not be detected in the end. So just use whatever butter you happen to have at home. And of course I made it with fresh peaches instead of the apples used by the chef. I am waiting for the first frost, that’s when my apples will be ready. Weather you use peaches or apples, this one is perfect dessert to serve to company.

4-6 peaches
6 eggs
8 Tbsp sugar
8 Tbsp flour
2 Tbsp cocoa
