WHAT IS A CHIMNEY CAKE?
It is a delicious dough made from scratch, hand rolled onto a wooden pin, coated with sugar and baked in a special oven then rolled into different toppings (chocolate, walnuts, coconut, cinnamon, sunflower seeds, peanut butter and more).
Chimney Cakes (Kürtös Kalács) originated in Hungarian villages located in Transylvania, which is a region of Romania.
Chimney Cakes are fun to eat. When you break it at one of the edges it opens like a spiral. It goes great with coffee in the morning, tea in the afternoon, and milk in the evening. You can have it for breakfast, lunch, or dessert. You will find it crispy on the outside and soft on the inside.
