Brrr, this weather calls for a big mug of tea and some spiral doughnuts dusted with cocoa, cinnamon and sprinkles. # 102: Kürtőskalács – Hungarian Chimney Cakes Remember a year ago when I justified buying the metal cannoli forms by promising that I would make chimney cakes with them? Well my friends, I’ve done just that. A year later, but still counts!
They are an Eastern European treat, traditionally cooked on a spit over an open fire. That gives them a crispy exterior and leaving the inside soft and doughy. Since I didn’t want to burn my apartment down, I chose to bake them in the oven instead. Oo idea: it could be a really fun campfire treat in place of s’mores! The scent was heavenly. As you pull apart the swirl, cocoa and cinnamon steam wafts up in an intoxicating cloud. I want to make them again just for the smell! Halfway through mise en place. I got these giant metal bowls at Ikea in college and they’re so fun to use. They’re really big and they feel super professional! Happy, bubbly yeast. http://honestcooking.com/kurtoskalacs-chimney-cake/
