House of Chimney Cakes Is Serving Up a Classic European Treat with a Sweet Twist

Fried to perfection and filled with soft serve, chimney cakes are metro Detroit’s hottest dessert.

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).
