December means bejgli season in Hungary. This month, everyone is exchanging recipes, and social media is full of pre-order advertisements, so it is tricky to find the best recipe or the best place to order our special Christmas dessert from.
If you are more about the at-home preparation, an all-day-cooking-and-baking type of person, here is a recipe of a classic bejgli with a twist.
In case you do not have time or do not trust your baking skills, funzine.hu ‘s list is the perfect choice to go through, whether you prefer classic flavours or you wish for something extra after this crazy year.
The traditional one: A flódnis
The creator and confectioner of ‘A flódnis’, Juci Vámosi, presents herself as someone who has never thought that one day, she would become a professional confectioner. She inherited her love for baking from her mum, along with little tricks and family recipes that are a huge success among their customers. You can get the classic walnut and poppy seed bejgli, all based on her secret family recipes. If Christmas is over, but you are not ready for its spirit and flavours to leave, her signature dessert, a flódnis, is the best choice for you as it is a mixture of walnut, poppy seed, apple, and plum jam filling.
Here is the link to order.
The traditional one with a twist: Mókusch Kávézó és Tortaműhely
This café is a warm and friendly place in the middle of the big city where you can enjoy the tastiest pastries and cakes in the company of a good Harry Potter book. Their bejglis are one of the most revolutionary Hungarian Christmas desserts that, apart from the classic flavours, include fillings such as plum, sour cherry, quince, or chestnut.

The extravagant: Dolcissima
As the name suggests, they offer Italian desserts throughout the year, but when it comes to Christmas, they go crazy with their extravagant creations. Italian and Hungarian elements are mixed together to form some crazy flavours. Poppy seed-amarena cherry, walnut-cranberry-rosemary, pistachio, and coconut-white chocolate are the craziest ones, but you cannot miss their very Italian walnut-Nutella and almond-lemon flavours either.

The Scandinavian: nor/ma
This bakery is not only making every day a little tastier, but they even spice up our holidays with some Scandinavian delicacies. Of course, they offer the traditional walnut and poppy seed bejgli, but this year, they created a pistachio-orange water bejgli which can be ordered together with their Scandinavian delicacies.
Here is how to find them and when to pay a visit.
The reform: Zelenák Sütiház
Even those with a food sensitivity or insulin resistance have now the possibility to indulge in the holiday season in every sense. Zelenák Sütiház offers an incredible variety of bejglis starting from gluten-, milk-, and sugar-free options, and even vegan variations in flavours such as walnut, poppy seed, chestnut, and even plum.
