What are Twister Cakes:
Twister Cakes, also known as Kurtos Kalacs in Romania or as Chimney Cakes, are an ancient Transylvanian treat that dates back to the 15th century. The cakes are usually prepared during special occasions like christening and weddings, but here in NY, we bake them every day! Strips of sweet dough are wrapped around wooden cylinders, rolled in sugar and baked. Traditionally the cakes were made and cooked on an open fire, over charcoal. Today, they are roasted in modern stainless steel rotisseries. When the twister cakes reach a dark caramel color they are dipped in different toppings like walnut, cinnamon, coconut, nutella, chocolate sprinkles and even bacon, or eaten unadorned. The perfect twister cake has a crispy caramelized crust but it is warm and fluffy on the inside.
We use the freshest ingredients when baking our twister cakes: flour, eggs, sugar, yeast, butter, salt, vanilla & lots of love.
Please be advised that Twister Cake is not a nut free facility.
- We recommend you freeze your twister cakes after you receive them and defrost them before you're ready to enjoy them.
- When you're ready to enjoy them, remove the plastic cover and use a bread knife to slice them horizontally, creating smaller cylinders at your desired size.
- Only heat the cakes 20-30 seconds in the microwave until they are warm but not hot.
- The twister cake is best enjoyed warm, with a glass of milk, or coffee, moreover, a scoop or two of ice cream will definitely turn it into a delicious desert.
