Did you searched the Romanian name for it? "Galuste cu prune" you may be surprised. Results 1

I lived in Hungary 2 whole years, I am not saying they don't make it but as I said before I don't recall to have seen it, as much as in Romania, Serbia and northern Bulgaria. I went there for work (Kecskemet, Szolnok, Budapest, Gyor).
In Serbia I had a pleasant surprise to be served with dumplings right at our job location. No one asked for it. I found out they were quite popular there too.
Transylvania has nothing to do with this recipe, they are made in Moldavia as well.
BTW Poland, Croatia, even Czechs, make them.
I'm sorry you feel as if you need to defend anything - I didn't realize you were under attack. I don't even know your heritage and I thought this thread was about plum dumplings.
Interesting though, that you first stated that "I've never
seen it there" and then changed your story to "I don't recall to have seen it, as much as
in Romania, Serbia and northern Bulgaria".
I think people should be allowed to enjoy recipes from whichever country they choose regardless of which nationality they claim as their own. I'm sorry if you feel differently.
