Cream Bun - Képviselő fánk (Congressmen Bun)

Hi Dears!
Today I brought another popular Hungarian confection that we call "Képviselő fánk", which means Congressmen Bun.
To be honest I didn't really care why it had its unusual name for a bakery product, we just call it like that, no big deal. 
But as I am writing this recipe for you now, I looked it up, and I found the explanation. This product became popular in the 19th century, when café houses were common, and people could afford to buy confections on a daily basis. Even the buffets had cakes and these creamy bakery products in their variety, and according to the legend, this was the most popular bun among the congressmen in the buffet of the House of Parliament. 
Now I wonder what is the menu there, if there are any buffets today... :)
