If you have ever been or considered to visit Budapest, you must have heard about chimney cakes. The heavenly treat by now is world famous and not without reason.
If – for some unexplainable reason – you have never heard of chimney cakes, here what you have to know:
Chimney cake is a speciality of Hungary and Hungarian speaking regions. The treat is made of sweet yeast dough, of which a strip is spun and the wrapped around a cone-shaped baking spit. After it is baked it is usually rolled in various delicacies, just like cinnamon sugar, vanilla sugar, cocoa powder or walnut, but really… the possibilities are endless.
All in all one word is more than a hundred and it’s YUMMM.
CHIMNEY CAKE LEVEL UP NO.1 – Stuffed chimney cake
In case a regular chimney cake wouldn’t be sweet enough for you this is for you! Many places now around Budapest offers stuffed chimney cakes. The most popular fillings are Nutella, peanut butter, ice cream and fruits, but once again it can be basically ANYTHING.
If you consider yourself as a sweet-tooth, this is a must try for you!!!
CHIMNEY CAKE LEVEL UP NO.2 – Hoppácska
You might think ice cream stuffed chimney cake was already extra enough, but the eatery Hoppácska (we could translate it as “OOPSY”) clearly had another opinion about it. This place has reinvented the speciality and besides the sweet fillings, you can try chimney cakes with salty fillings too. Just to mention a couple of them: hamburger chimney cake, duck burger chimney cake, spicy meatball chimney cake, LECSÓ (also Hungarian speciality) chimney cake and so on.
Once again..all we can say is YUMMY.
Go ahead, try them, love them, it’s ok to thank us later! 😉
