Cinnamon and sugar

Downey Street Faire chimney cakes

Do we seem a little preoccupied with food lately? Well, it was hard not to be preoccupied with all of the tasty offerings at last weekend's street fair. My favorite was something I hadn't heard of before—chimney cakes.

Downey Street Faire chimney cakesChimney cakes are a traditional Hungarian pastry that originated in Transylvania (now in Romania). The dough is wrapped around a wooden cylinder, covered with sugar, and baked over an open fire. Then the pastry is dipped in one of a variety of toppings, such as chocolate, coconut, or (my favorite) cinnamon.
