This entry is a re-creation of a recipe from The Prince of Transylvania's Court Cookbook (Hungary, 16th c.), entitled "Strawberry and Mulberry Cake". [insert a brief description of dish here, possibly including any or all of the following: characteristics of the final dish, when or how it might have been served, and why you selected it]

The Source Recipe
The original text of the recipe is as follows:

Strawberry and mulberry cake. You will need some egg yolks, whip it and add some sweet sour cream, some rose water and crushed almonds, add some milk when boiling it, stir it while boiling. Then make the bottom part of the cake, put the stuffing into it, add the strawberries, add lots of sugar. Before adding the strawberries, wash them in rose water. Bake it carefully, it doesn't need a lot of time; if you're cooking it in a sheet, bake it in a furnace. You can use rice like I mentioned for the stuffing.
