Lungauer Rahmkoch

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
