|Place of origin||Hungary|
|Created by||Károly Gundel|
|Main ingredients||Walnuts, raisins, rum, dark chocolate sauce (egg yolks, heavy cream, cocoa)|
The first Gundel crêpe was created and invented by Károly Gundel, who made the pancake with ground walnuts, raisins, and rum filling, served flambéed in a dark chocolate sauce made with egg yolks, heavy cream and cocoa. The original recipe is secret; only the worldwide-known Gundel restaurant knows it. The restaurant serves 25,000 portions to their guests annually.
The dessert is well known in the Austrian kitchen. They recommend this pancake sometimes as Chocolate-walnut palatschinke or Walnut-palatschinke in Austria. It is usually served with whipped cream and normally doesn't contain raisins. The Hotel Sacher presents it based on the original prescription, with caramelized walnut.
