Holland came from behind to hit Hungary for six, but then suffered their own big blow with a late injury to Arjen Robben.
Star winger Robben left the Amsterdam ArenA with a hamstring injury after notching a brace (64, 79), leaving him a major doubt for the World Cup.
Robin van Persie (22), Wesley Sneijder (58) Mark van Bommel (71) and Eljero Elia (75) were also on target for Oranje in their final World Cup warm-up game before their Group E campaign.
But the Dutch were caught napping for the sixth-minute opener when Sandor Torghelle's long ball from his own half was collected with ease by Balazs Dzsudzsak, who dispatched a powerful shot into the top-left corner of Maarten Stekelenburg's net from the edge of the area.
Bert van Marwijk's side were back on level terms 16 minutes later when Liverpool forward Dirk Kuyt crossed from the right wing and Arsenal striker Van Persie lashed home.
Hungary looked good value for the draw at the interval with Oranje offering little in the way of attacking threat, but all that changed in the second period as the hosts hit their stride.
The Dutch went ahead after 56 minutes when Giovanni van Bronckhorst picked out Sneijder and the Inter Milan midfielder fired home from close range.
Feyenoord veteran Van Bronckhorst was again the provider eight minutes later when he crossed from the left and Robben side-footed home from six yards.
Van Bommel made it 4-1 after 71 minutes after being played in by Robben while Elia added a fifth from the left side of the area four minutes later as Van Bommel turned provider.
Robben completed the scoring with a stunning sixth from the edge of area 12 minutes from time but the day would end on a sour note for the former Chelsea playmaker, who faces an anxious wait to discover whether his World Cup dream is over.
Van Marwijk will be hoping the World Cup injury jinx that has struck so many big-name players this week does not come to include the Bayern Munich winger.
