Kurtos Kalacs (Chimmney Cake) have never seen this but it looks yummy

Now what is Kurtos Kalacs? Kurtos Kalacs is actually a traditional Hungarian pastry which also called as Chimney Cake. It is originated from Transylvania. Just like those coffee cake which the bread topping covered with loads of sweet frosting, so.

A long rope of sweet yeast dough is tightly wrapped in a spiral around a wooden form, something like a rolling pin, and dusted with sugar.  It is then baked, slowly   turning, on a rotating spit above an open flame.  Carefully edged off its wooden mold after baking, each chimney cake is a whimsical-looking, soft bread with an addictively crunchy caramelized sugar crust and an airy open center.  German-Baumstritzel
