Chimney cake is a traditional dessert in Hungary, if you want to taste it too, we look forward to welcoming you on our Budapest food tour, where you can also taste many other delicacies. 🙂
The sweet scent you feel all over Budapest is the kürtöskalács (chimney cake in English). This “barbecued dessert” is a typical Hungarian specialty from Transylvania, made over a grill, on a special tool. Kürtőskalács 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. You can find it with ground walnuts, powdered cinnamon, chocolate, and pretty much any other topping you can imagine.
