I’ve only seen this pastry at the annual food and wine festival that takes place in the old market square every August in Poznan. It was so interesting to watch it being made. A yeast dough is rolled out and then cut into a spiral shaped ribbon of dough. The dough is then wound onto a bobbin-like piece of wood on a skewer. It’s then rolled over hot coals, then in sugar and back on the coals . The outside bakes with a crisp crust, and caramelized sugar. The inside stays soft and tender. When it’s ready to come off the coals, it’s finished in more sugar, cinnamon-sugar, or nuts.
A delicious treat – both visually and in the traditional sense. I may have to sacrifice my rolling pin to try this at home. 😉
