Chim Chim Cher-ee
Chimney Cakes, or Kürtőskalács to give them their full name, is a cake which is generally found in Transylvania and Hungary, or you may have seen them on sale at Christmas markets in the UK. Made from a sweet, yeast dough which is wrapped around a shaped spit, covered in sugar and roasted. The sugar caramelises and creates a shiny, crisp coating. These are then served topped with additional ingredients such as cinnamon or icing sugar.
We first tried them on holiday in Sighisoara, Romania many years ago in 2008 and remember them fondly. So when we heard that there was a shop selling chimney cakes in Glasgow, we had to visit.
Step inside to a wonderland of chimney cakes and a gazillion things to add to them.
Thumbs up from both of us. It was just like being back in Romania but with added luxurious fillings. There's a wide variety of combinations on offer, both sweet and savoury. We'll be back to try a savoury one next time.
