Sweet from the mountain

In the charming Gosau Valley, you can also enjoy this very special meal in summer. A classic, which has its origin in the poorer, rural cuisine. The delicious dessert consists of two slices of white bread coated with plum jam, which are then folded together and dipped in a mixture of milk and egg and then fried in a pan with hot fat. After cooling down somewhat, they and then dusted with casting sugar and eaten warm. Whether as a snack, or full-blown main course; Gosau “Pofesen” are always a culinary delight.
