Home made kürtöskalács

Lately there is a huge boom of baking kürtöskalács in the Hungarian foodie blogsphere and that encouraged me to bake some as well. I found a great transilvanian recipe for it so therefore I had no more excuses left!

30 g fresh yeast
about 200-250 ml milk
2 tablespoon sugar
500 g flour

2 eggs
2 egg yolks
1 pinch of salt
60 g butter, melted

sugar, cinnamon, walnuts for coating

Heat 100 ml milk until lukewarm and pour it over yeast among 1 tablespoon sugar and let it stand until yeast swims on top. Add flour, rest of the sugar, eggs, egg yolks, salt and knead a dough, pouring luke warm milk in small portions into it. When the dough leaves the side of the bowl knead melted butter in it. Set dough aside to rest for an hour. Prepare kitchen paper rolls for baking: half them and cover with aluminium foil and oil. Roll out dough about 0,5 - 0,7 cm thick rectangle and slice about 2 cm thick. Roll slices up on the oiled rolls and brush with water. Roll it in cinnamon sugar or walnut sugar or whatever you desire. Bake for 10-15 minutes on 170°C.

Rosa: it is worth a try, however it is not the same when you get the ones baked over open fire.
