Travel to Transylvania via pastry "the area's most fantastical export might be kürtőskalács, Hungarian for chimney cakes: hollow, helix-shaped pastries, made from a simple yeast dough that's wrapped around a wooden cylinder, dusted with sugar, then baked on a rotating spit over an open flame" Take that, Count Dracula!

Tubular Treats: Transylvanian Chimney Cakes

The Eastern European region of Transylvania is perhaps not known for its contributions to the pastry world — indeed, many associate the Romanian region more with the Bram Stoker's fictional landscape than with baked goods of any variety. But setting hazy visions of creatures of the night aside, the area's most fantastical export might be kurtőskalacs, Hungarian for chimney cakes: hollow, helix-shaped pastries, made from a simple yeast dough that's wrapped around a wooden cylinder, dusted…

Romanian Savarin Cake {recipe in Romanian}

Dobos Torte  The most famous Hungarian cake in the world, Dobos Torte, was first made for the Hungarian state exhibition in 1885. It was made out of 8 separately baked layers of biscuit spread over with a cooked buttercream.

DOBOS TORTE

Seeing that I have only one one rack in my oven a Dobos Torte was not something I was keen to attempt. But I did it. In 4 hours. The sponge layers took only 5 minutes to bake but must be watched and baking those thin layers should never be paired with accidental naps in between. The chocolate frosting made me falter and I almost went for another recipe because 3 raw egg yolks could mean salmonella attacks, hospitalization and doctor's bills en masse. I decided to be brave and went ahead. We…

Astazi m-am gandit sa pregatesc gogosi fragede si pufoase. Frigul si ninsoarea de afara ne indeamna sa petrecem mai mult timp in bucatarie, si cum gogosile au nevoie un picut de timp ca sa creasca, mi s-a parut ca ar fi desertul perfect.

Romanian Savarin Cake (Savarina) | gourmetcubicle
