Full description
Discover how to prepare Kürtőskalács, a traditional Hungarian chimney cake, at a workshop in Budapest. Prepare one of Hungary's favorite foods which are made from sweet dough, formed into strips, and then are wrapped around a cone and rolled in sugar. After a short introduction, be guided through the entire process of preparing an authentic chimney cake. Start by making the sweet dough from scratch. Receive tips and tricks which help with the baking process. See how the sugar stuck on the cake caramelises and forms a shiny, crispy golden crust. Once the baking process is finished, cover the cake with different flavors, such as ground walnut, powdered cinnamon, chocolate sauce, or similar.  At the end of the workshop try your delicious creation, and receive a certificate of completion with your name as a memento of your experience.

Booked this to do whilst in Budapest for my birthday hubby's 50th Birthday celebrations. It was so much fun learning to to make the Chimney Cakes. The activity takes place in the basement of the shop and run by a lovely staff member. It last about 45 mins and after you are done, you get to take away the cakes you make, the recipe and a certificate. Would definitely recommend this as something to do whilst in Budapest.

Our hostess was very friendly. And received us very nicely. All utensils, including an apron, were ready. It was easy to endure in an air-conditioned cellar room. She guided us through the baking lesson in perfect English. My English is not very good, but I understood everything. We even learned a historical background to the chimney cake.

From being greeted with a coffee to the personalised certificates received at the end, this was a great Hungarian experience. This is a small group experience and with just 3 of us, we felt each of us were personally being taught the 'ropes' of making Chimney Cakes. We each made 3 delicious Chimney Cakes to take away and enjoy later.
