A few words about Chimney Cake
Let us introduce Chimney Cake (Trdelník)
Chimney Cake (Trdelník) has several origins. In the mid-19th century it was known as a Slovak dish, and in the 20th century as a Moravian dish. A similar pastry was also popular in the Hungarian speaking part of Transylvania (in today’s Romania), where it is called kürtőskalács.
The word trdelník is of Czech-Slovak origin; the root of this word, trdlo, is the name of the wooden tool the cake ingredients are wrapped around during cooking (which gives it its traditional hollow shape), and can also mean “simpleton” in English
