To make this unique pastry, we roll up a long strip of sweet yeast-dough and twist it around a baking spit - making sure the edges of the strips stick together and form a solid spiral of dough. Then we roll the dough on the spit in granulated sugar and coat it with melted butter or oil. We bake it in a special oven designed for this purpose, until the sugar on top caramelizes and the cake acquires a beautiful brownish-red colour. After this, the freshly baked pastry is once again rolled in a mixture of sugar and cinnamon or other toppings of choice, such as dried raspberries or finely ground walnuts.
The end of product is a shiny, crispy crust with a deliciously light and fluffy dough on the inside, which melts in the mouth. In order to satisfy the diverse needs of consumers, the flavouring can be varied in infinite ways, not only in the flavours mentioned above, - even savoury versions can be created!
My name is Sandor. I originally come from Hungary and I moved to Great Britain in 2013. I have been working in the tourism and catering industry for more than 15 years now. In the past 5 years I have had the chance to further broaden my professional knowledge in London.
In Budapest I worked for 2 years at a reputable company, where I acquired the skill and practices regarding the dough. During my 5 years of work in London, I had the opportunity to work in catering units of different structures, such as coffee shops, restaurants and pubs, which has allowed me to gain an insight into the world of the local confectionery.
Based on the past years’ experience, I now can see a clear picture of the consumer’s needs. The interest in this Hungarian-origin pastry is continuously growing in Western Europe as well as overseas. After years of planning, I am finally ready to take the plunge and carry out my plans in practice to acquaint the locals with this fine pastry. Through thorough work I was able to establish a company with much attention to detail and a stylish appearance to do just that.
is to spice the life with flavours and experiences. Sprinkle the weekdays with some sweetness and popularize this unique, delicious pastry. I believe that one day people will mention Kürtőskalács as same as Donuts, Churros or Pretzel.
