What is fluden / flodni?

rworange | Aug 19, 200711:03 PM     4

A Russian market in SF makes fluden. They were selling honey and nut fluden which didn't appeal to me at the time. However I never heard of fluden before and there's not too much on the web ... in English. Also called flodni.

This site says ...

"This is one of those recipes that has pretty much disappeared in the United States, but those who remember it rave about it. A fluden, which comes from fladni or fladen, "flat cake" in German, is just that, a flat, double-or often multilayered flaky pastry filled with poppy seeds, apples and raisins, or cheese"

Now cheese fluden ... I could have got on board for that. It looked like this
