Kürtőskalács

09 Jan

Kürtőskalács is a Hungarian pastry also known as chimney cake.
It is baked on a tapered cylindrical spit over an open fire. Kürtőskalács originates from Transylvania. Transylvania was a part of the Austria-Hungarian Empire in the past.
The pastry is baked on a wooden spit, rolled slowly on the wooden cylinder above an open fire. The dough is yeast-raised, flavored with sweet spices, the most common being cinnamon, topped with walnuts or almonds, and sugar. The sugar is caramelized on the kürtöskalács surface, creating a sweet, crisp crust.
