Hungarian story about eating plum dumplings

A friend has asked me if I can recall a story by a Hungarian - he thinks Georges Mikes - about a man who tries to eat 100 plum dumplings (szilvás gombóc in Hungarian) but dies when eating the 99th. He read this story some time before 1975 when he first tried this wonderful dish. Our collective googling and knowledge of Hungarian humorists has drawn a blank. Anyone out there recognize this story?
