Apfelstrudel (Apple Strudel)
Classic and mouth-watering, Apple Strudel is one of Austria’s favourite and most popular pastry desserts. It is said that its original recipe comes from the imperial bakery of the Austro-Hungarian Empire.
Marble Gugelhupf (Marble Cake)
Perfect with tea and coffee, this grand-mother-cake is traditionally known for its distinctive marble effect. It became a classic in Viennese society after the Habsburg Emperor Francis Joseph ordered Marble Gugelhupf for his breakfast every day.
Vanillekipferl (Vanilla Crescents)
