There is not a single photo on the internet. I saw a bowl of macaroni sprinkled with cocoa, but that is not kakaós tészta. Everyone is busy making the trendy stuff these days. What about the dishes we grew up with? Shame on you Hungarian bloggers, it looks like I will be the first one putting it on line and in English no doubt. Homemade noodles are the best, but you can use ready-made fresh or dry noodles as long as they are broad noodles. The type Hungarians call szélesmetélt.

broad egg noodles for 4
2 Tbsp butter
1/4 cup raw cocoa
1/4 cup superfine sugar

• Bring a 4-liter pot of salted water to a boil.
• Add the noodles and boil until tender, 8 to 9 minutes. Drain.
• Pour the hot noodles though a large sieve and rinse under cold running water.
• Let the noodles drain completely.
• Melt the butter in the pot and add the drained noodles.
• Mix well to coat with butter. Cover and keep the noodles warm.
• Combine the cocoa with the sugar.
• Transfer the warm buttered noodles to a large, preheated serving bowl.
• Sprinkle each serving generously with the cocoa-sugar mixture.

My photo
It began with posting a few recipes on line for my family. "zsuzsa is in the kitchen" has more than 1000 Hungarian and International recipes. What started out as a private project turned into a well visited blog. The number of visitors long passed the two million mark. I organized my recipes into an on-line cookbook. On top of the page click on the cookbook to access the recipes. I am not profiting from my blog, so my visitors will not be harassed with advertising or flashy gadgets. Feel free to cut and paste my recipes for your own use. Publication is permitted as long as it is in your own words and with your own photographs. However, I would ask you for an acknowledgement and link-back to my blog. Happy cooking!
