A "calorie sin" that is worth
Along with Bauernkrapfen and Hasenöhrl, Lungauer Marzipan - as it is often called - is one of the very specialties from the Salzburg Lungau region.
Every dairymaid probably has her own recipe for the well-known "calorie sin". The combination of butter, cream, sugar, aniseed, cinnamon, rum and raisins tastes simply delicious.
In the past, the Lungauer Rahmkoch was intended as a dessert for the hard working population, because the combination of butter and cream provided strength and energy. Today, the cream chef is a must when you stop for coffee at a mountain hut after a successful mountain tour
"Enjoying cream cooked pieces in thoughts of the Lungau mountain world"
|500g butter |
500g non-slip flour
¼ l cream
cinnamon, anise, raisins, rum
Patience and perseverance is required
As you can see, it takes a lot of patience and endurance - yes, you really need that to prepare the delicious dessert yourself, unless you have a thermomix, in which case you save all the stirring. We have the dear ladies from the "Thermomix-Lungau" to thank for this, who have made the Thermomix accessible in their Lungau recipe guide. The Thermomix "spares" the long stirring, moreover nothing can burn, so every cream cook becomes the perfect Lungauer Almmarzipan.
