Things to know about Kurtoskalacs Recipe

The famous Hungarian chimney cake originally comes from Romania from Székely Land. Back then, it was a part of the Hungarian Kingdom. The first-ever (known) recipe for the famous chimney cake, named “Kürtős kaláts’ à la Mrs. Poráni,” was found in a 1784 cookbook that Transylvanian countess Mária Mikes de Zabola wrote.

Hungarian chimney cake has become traditional street food, especially on Christmas. Every city in Hungary during Christmas is filled with “Kürtöskalács” stands.

It can be topped with additional ingredients such as ground walnuts or powdered cinnamon; they’re also often filled with ice cream or whipped cream in some places.
