Made Scones. Scone with Pork Cracklings (Hungarian way) is really different from the British ones. It is called “Tepertős Pogácsa”. The recipe yields 5 dozens, which means 60 Pogácsa, but I think that’s really too much for just three of us in the house. I halved the ingredients from the original recipe. So here it is. At point of writing, I am left with 10 from 28 pieces. Make a guess who ate most of it 😉
This recipe yield 2.5 dozens
We can easily buy scones with pork cracklings in any parts of Hungary. In a sense, I don’t usually have to make it. It is a relatively easy to make pastry and many people like it. As a snack, tea break snacks, finger food for parties etc. Children loves it. I realised the British/English versions of Scones are usually sweet, while the these Hungarian scones are savoury. My husband prefers the savoury version. The original of this recipe yield 5 dozens. In fact, I got a shock seeing it as it will mean 60 pogacsa-s, and that is really too much. This recipe has its ingredients halved and I’ve added the pork cracklings which to be honest, it made the whole lot of difference!
Do you feel eating pork cracklings is sinful? What are your views about eating lard?
