Crispy on the outside and sweet and fluffy on the inside, chimney cakes are a popular Hungarian street dessert that is gaining popularity in the U.S. Similar to a doughnut or churro, chimney cakes are made from a sweet dough and fried to perfection, then enjoyed dressed up (filled with soft serve ice cream and covered in your favorite toppings) or dressed down (simple and fresh, with a sweet glaze).
