Tips For The Walnut Beigli Recipe

➡️ This old-fashioned walnut cake is very popular not only in Germany but also in several countries in Central and Eastern Europe, including Hungary, where it is called walnut beigli.

➡️ Actually, walnut beigli is a version of the authentic German poppy seed cake named Mohnstrietzel.

➡️ Both walnut and poppy seed beigli are usually prepared in the winter and especially at Christmas when they are found on almost any table. This is at least the case in homes where the holiday season is traditionally celebrated.

➡️ However, due to its popularity, beigli is baked not only for Christmas but also for Easter and at any other time during the cold months.

➡️ German nut cake is usually served simply as a dessert with or without tea or coffee. In addition, walnut beigli is very tasty along with milk, so it is often served for breakfast in this combination.
