Chimney Cakes: How I discovered this yummy treat in Prague.

I pride myself in researching before each trip to Europe. But, this year was especially busy for me, so I decided to just explore each country with reckless abandon and learn as I go. Prague was a fun one for me! I learned about light Pilsner beers, and also about the Chimney Cake, which I ate before I even new it's official name, Trdelnik. You see, when you keep seeing this funny looking spiral sign atop storefronts at every corner, and then you see people smiling and eating these interesting looking pastries that you have never in your life seen before, you go, you find, you order and you eat!

I have to admit that I felt like a kid trying this pastry on the side of the street sitting next to my son. It was not as I expected. It actually wasn't quite as sweet or as light and fluffy as I thought. It was actually more dense and bread-like. That said, apparently there are "better" chimney cakes around town as I noted in this article. So take a read and maybe you can join me next summer, June 2020, in Prague as I go to this same place!
