In Hungary, these foods are simply called "the creamy" (Hungarian: "Krémes"). However, the »Ruszwurm Cream Pastry« is not loosened up with foam of egg white but loosened up with cream.

    In the original recipe, 10 egg yolks, 350 grams of sugar, 120 grams of strudel flour and a vanilla bar per liter of milk are provided. Although the recipe is public, but this cream slice is still only produced in one pastry Ruszwurm.
