Medicine Woman’s Larder – Guest Post – Hungarian Nut Rolls by Van

Doing a guest post on Sally’s lovely blog. Walnuts are the special guest ! ☺

Smorgasbord - Variety is the spice of life


Following on from the posts last week on Walnuts.. Van mentioned that she had an old family recipe using walnuts that her family loved.  I persuaded her to share with the rest of us.

Hungarian Nut Rolls

This is a much loved recipe from the 1920’s, handed down by women in babushka’s. They used an old fashioned manual nut grinder, mounted to the edge of a wooden table. The food processor made it so much easier.

Even with modern convenience, this is a recipe that keeps you at home for hours, but the aromas of yeast dough, mixed with real butter and fresh walnuts…worth the effort.
Hope you enjoy. I’m proud to share.


6 Cups flour
2TBS sugar
1/2 tsp. Salt
2 packs dry yeast
1/2 cup warm water
3/4lb. Butter
7 egg yolks
1 Cup whole milk.

2lb. Walnuts, ground finely
7 egg whites

    I have never heard of a nutroll before. I bet it’s great with a nice cup of coffee!

    Sounds and looks delicious! Thank you for the recipe! I usually buy a couple of pumpkin rolls this time of year, but I think I’ll try this instead. xoxo
