Surprise your guests with a novelty sweet treat that makes a change from the usual classics. A traditional Kurtos Kalacs, or chimney cake, is a snack that comes in many varieties. Whether it’s served as a festive dessert, or as on-the-go street food, this snack suits many occasions. And with a chimney cake oven, you can easily make them yourself.

What is a chimney cake?

Chimney cake is a sweet treat that has been popular in Hungary and Romania for centuries. The original name of this traditional dessert is Kürtöskalács, but it is also known as Kurtos Kalacs, Horn cake, Hungarian cake, chimney cake or simply 'cake on a stick'. It is a sweet bread with a crispy exterior and hollow interior. The chimney cake owes its name to its shape: the bun is cone shaped and the hollow inside makes it look like a chimney, especially when it has just come out of the oven.

To make a chimney cake, roll the dough over a cone-shaped wooden roller that has a handle attached to it. Using this, roll the dough through vanilla sugar, after which bake the bread over a wood-built fire or a grill, in a stone oven or in a special chimney cake oven. During cooking, the sugar will caramelise. The traditional Kurtos Kalacs is then rolled in cinnamon powder and sugar, but you can also add your own twist to this snack.

Popular toppings for your kalács include walnuts, hazelnuts, coconut, cocoa, almonds and honey. A savoury version can also be made with cheese, herbs and olives, for example. But you can also make an even sweeter snack by using sprinkles, chocolate spread or other chocolate products.

What is a chimney cake maker or Kurtos Kalacs oven?

The traditional way to make a chimney cake is to cook the dough on a wooden roller while turning it over a smouldering wood fire, like you do with marshmallows.

But you might not always have a smouldering fire ready and you probably don't have the time to hold the wooden roll either. An electric chimney cake oven is then the easiest way to make eight chimney cakes all at once. Once you've rolled the dough around the wooden chimney holders, you've already done most of the work. Place the wooden holders in the oven and set the desired temperature with the thermostat. The electric chimney cake maker automatically rotates the cakes. This way you bake the cakes evenly to get a nice and crispy exterior all around.

What is the difference between a chimney cake grill and a chimney cake oven?

In addition to the electric oven, Maxima Kitchen Equipment also has a chimney cake grill. With this electric grill you can make eight kurtos kalács at the same time, just like with the oven. With the grill, the cake holders also rotate automatically and the temperature is also adjustable using the thermostat. Two differences to consider are the size and the voltage. The oven is a standing appliance and has a standard 230V plug. The grill is a wider appliance and works on power current with a 400V plug. For safety, the grill can be covered with a lid and the oven has a glass door. Thanks to this design, both appliances are easy to clean. The smooth stainless steel casing also contributes to this.

Is a chimney cake maker suitable for my catering business?

The chimney cake is perfect for a variety of food vendors. Examples include food trucks or market stalls at festivals, Christmas markets, street sales or all kinds of outdoor events. With a chimney cake, you can surprise your guests with a unique offering.

Waffles, churros, donuts, crepes and pancakes are well known food items at events. The chimney cake may be less well known, but it fits in perfectly on this list of delicious street foods. In restaurants, cafes and pubs this cake also makes a welcome appearance on dessert menus. Looking for more equipment to create some sweet snacks? Maxima has even more cooking equipment for similar items, from donut makers and waffle makers to churros makers and pancake makers.
