About the pudding

Tejbegríz is a very easy, creamy and delicious treat that the whole family will love, once you cooked and tasted it. You don’t have to have huge cooking skills for this meal and it can be done in about 30 minutes.

As far as I know, some people around the world (even in Hungary) call it as the ‘Meal of the poor’ – as it is a very cheap food -, but in fact, many wealthy people eat it due to its sweetness and fantastic taste overall. Additionally, you can flavor it for yourself with cocoa powder, grounded cinnamon, fruits or rainbow sprinkles (cake decoration sweets).

In fact, apart from the ingredients all you need is some endurance, as the 30 minutes of stirring is not my favourite activity :).

Try it out – you won’t be disappointed!
