You can find it in every pastry shop, it is prepared all over the world. It is made from eggs, milk and flour. Some would say that there is no difference when the ingredients are the same. Still, not all of such cakes are made by the same recipe. They can be firm and dense, just like pudding. Some producers work with the addition, putting cream on the surface, before the upper crust, while the others are decorating them with chocolate glazing. Crusts are prepared in different ways, some prefer that they are softer, and others are more tougher. And that's exactly what makes the difference between seemingly the same sweat. If you ask citizens of Samobor, everyone will tell you that Samobor kremšnita is the only right one. Always fresh and warm, foamy, they melt in the mouth.
