Ruth's sister in law Csilla (Chilla) Barta is starting her own business. Csilla is baking chimney cakes, an old Romanian recipe that is unique and tastes wonderful. Csilla is selling these and if you are interested in trying one her phone number is 309-299-3722. They live on Lancaster Rd near Hanna City, IL, she makes them at her house but also makes them for fairs, special occasions, and the Spoon River Drive. I asked Csilla to build one for the blog.
She first makes and rolls out the dough.
Once the dough is the correct consistency she cuts it in strips.
Each strip is carefully placed on the prepared dowel.
Each cake is then rolled in different ingredients, the one below has been rolled in sugar and cinnamon but one can choose nuts along with different sugars.
Then comes the baking, the chimney cakes are baked over a hand made grill using the best hardwoods for flavor.
Let's get a better look at this delicious chimney cake being baked over an open grill.
They are then wrapped in cellophane and ready for the next customer.
These are delicious anytime but the very best time to eat them is right off the grill. They are warm, sweet, fresh and tastes so wonderful, my mouth is watering just thinking of them.
Csilla is more than welcome to make these at any function such as party, carnival, fund raiser, fair or show. This is a unique food item no one else is selling, only Csilla from her own secret recipe. Give her a call to try these wonderful tasty treats sold very reasonable at 309-229-3722
