Not a local custom, but a local speciality: the Prekmurska gibanica! This is a strudel that contains curds, poppy seed and nuts. You can get it not only in the Prekmurska area but also in the rest of Slovenia, usually as warm dessert. It's quite filling, so don't eat too much before eating this cake! Not so easy as portions are always so big...
