Kürtős Spiroll, the Hungarian

Kürtős Spiroll is in Penang, located at the 3rd floor of Queensbay Mall! Sharing the news with Attila by buying him an Original Hungarian, he's indeed amazed by the originality of this cake. My Hungarian Boyfriend is having a little doubt that it's being claimed as 'Traditional European Chimney Cake'. Kürtős Spiroll is actually Kürtős Kalács whereby 'Kürtős' means trumpet or it's a type of musical instrument while 'Kalács' means cake. Anyway, chimney has been more officially known than the trumpet. Well, it sounds better?!! The name actually comes from the circular shape of the cake that is a empty hole at the center. 

I've visited the restaurant twice that I can complete the photographing for my blog. The Original Hungarian Kürtős is the bread roll that has a thin layer of caramelized sugar whereby it's very crispy yet the dough is still very soft. Firstly, the dough that has been fermented for 16 hours is then flattened and pasted onto the cylindrical wooden rod. Next, the dough is swept with the oil before being coated evenly with the white sugar. The final step is to bake the dough in a special oven till it gets the perfect brownish skin. Additionally, you can choose from their Favourite or Premium Series that range from Sunflower Seeds, Hawaiian Coconut, Sesame Seeds, Cinnamon Sugar, Chocolate Rice, Nutella Walnut, Peanut Butter & Choc Chips to Premium Chicken Floss whereby the added ingredient is then coated onto the Kürtős that has been completed baking.

I've definitely enjoyed the Kürtős for its crispy skin and the softness of the bread roll. Either with sugar only, the owner has as well offered dipping sauces such as chocolate, butterscotch caramel or the garlic cheese. Being written on the paper box is the 1-by-1 steps to eat the Kürtős:
1. Pinch the tip!
2. Unravel it!
3. Break it!
4. Dip it!
5. Take a bite!
6. Start again!

I'll skip the step no. 4 as I've loved it plainly...
