Chimney Cake ​

When walking the streets of Budapest, there are mainly two different types of street food stalls that you come across again and again: First there is “Langos” (savory): Fried yeast dough topped with sour cream, garlic oil and grated cheese. The other food you’ll find everywhere is “Chimney Cake” (sweet): Sweet yeast dough wrapped around a tube, baked and rolled in cinnamon and sugar.

Chimney cake is probably the most popular dessert in Hungary. You can usually smell a chimney cake stand or the smell of freshly baked yeast dough and cinnamon from afar. The steaming, warm yeast dough rolls with cinnamon and sugar cost between 2 and 6 euros depending on your location in the city and are the perfect afternoon snack when you feel like something sweet!
