The Best European Chimney Cake


For many people it’s been known as Chimney cake but for Romanians and Hungarians it’s known as “Kürtöskalács” and is made from sweet, yeast dough, of which a strip is spun and then wrapped around a truncated cone–shaped baking spit, and rolled in granulated sugar. It is roasted over charcoal while basted with melted butter, until its surface cooks to a golden-brown color.

During the baking process the sugar stuck on the kürtőskalács caramelises and forms a shiny, crispy crust. The surface of the cake can then be topped with additional ingredients such as ground walnut or powdered cinnamon mixed with sugar, coconut and now you can use it as a cone and put that delicious Nutella or Dulce de Lech, icecream and make it the most amazing thing you have ever eat.
