Chimney Cake, also known as Kürtőskalács in Hungarian or Trdlenik in Czech, is a traditional Central and Eastern European delicacy, dating back to the 15th century, originating in the Transylvanian region of Romania and popular throughout the region, particularly in Hungary and the Czech Republic. Discover Lolilol rue de Turenne in the Marais district to taste this cake!

The LOLILOL boutique seems to be a veritable paradise for Chimney Cakes lovers, offering a unique experience with a wide variety of flavors and toppings.

Pierre and Kosta 's passion for these Eastern European delights shines through in every detail of their store, from the selection of ingredients to the customization of the cakes for each customer.

Their history, blending Pierre's Parisian origins and Kosta's Cretan roots, adds a personal touch to the business, creating a warm and welcoming atmosphere.

The fact that these two partners discovered Chimney Cakes on a trip to Budapest and decided to import them to Crete before bringing them back to Paris shows their commitment to these delicacies and their desire to share this unique taste experience with Parisians and visitors alike.

This spit-roasted cake is made from a light, fluffy brioche dough, composed mainly of flour, milk, yeast and sugar, depending on the recipe. The dough is kneaded to a smooth, elastic texture, then divided into portions and wrapped around wooden cylinders or custom-made cones, creating its characteristic spiral shape.

Before being placed in the oven, the cake is generously rolled in granulated sugar, which caramelizes during baking, forming a deliciously sweet crust on the outside. Once baked, Chimney Cakes are rolled in a variety of toppings to suit individual preferences.

Popular toppings include vanilla sugar, cinnamon, colored vermicelli, pistachio powder, ground hazelnuts, hazelnut or chocolate spreads, honey, jam and many more.

These toppings add an extra dimension of flavor and texture to this delicious pastry.

Interesting variations on Chimney Cake include the cone-shaped version, which is ideal for topping with ice cream, sorbet or Greek yoghurt, offering an irresistible combination of hot and cold, crisp and soft, or a savoury version such as hot dog, pizza or, at the moment, raclette.

In short, Chimney Cake is much more than just a pastry: it's a complete sensory experience, combining the softness of its brioche dough, the crunch of its caramelized crust and the infinite variety of its toppings, all in a unique and attractive presentation.

All in all, LOLILOL seems to be a must for anyone looking for a taste experience in Paris.
