Things to know about Magyar Kakaos Csiga Recipe
Taste the Hungarian version of the world-famous American cinnamon rolls. But, what is “Kakaós Csiga” exactly? It’s a chocolate roll often served for breakfast or brunches in Hungary; it has delicious crisp edges and fluffy, soft, and smooth chocolate centers. This pastry was first made in Göd, a small town next to the Danube river in Pest county. The person who invented it was called Mór Pösch, a regular baker in this small town; he invented this pastry for his 33rd birthday. Unfortunately, he made too much of them, so he decided to sell the rest of them. After he sold them all, he decided to start selling them daily in his bakery; first, it was called “Csokoládés Tekerge” (chocolate swirls), then later on the name changed to “Kakaós Csiga.” The pastry is made with Blundell dough, similar to Danish pastry and croissant dough. The difference between Blundell and Danish pastry dough is the amount of fat that’s placed (rolled) into the dough; Blundell dough uses butter for the roll as croissant dough does. “Kakaós Csiga” can be consumed as an everyday pastry for breakfast or as a snack throughout the day.
