Gravatar van Idan hi which yeast you recommended? dry ?
Ohmydish commented at 2019-08-21 10:16:47
Gravatar van Ohmydish Hi, yes as you can see in the ingredient picture we used dry yeast. It's also possible to use fresh yeast, but you can use any yeast that's available/you prefer :)

Gravatar van Sandra Olson I ate these in Transylvania two weeks ago and bought the molds to make them. But the recipe was in Romanian! Thanks for your recipe.

Gravatar van Lane Hogaboam too wet, I had better results when I used one egg
Ohmydish commented at 2017-04-03 12:53:05
Gravatar van Ohmydish Sometimes it can depend on the size of the eggs, also the way of kneading can influence the way a dough behaves. The result as seen on the pictures is exactly how the recipe is described, using 2 eggs. I'm sorry it didn't work out for you though :)

Gravatar van Nora hi i make this over and over but after cooking my cake is very fragile and broken easily. what must be i do for a soft chimney? thanks for your help...
Ohmydish commented at 2018-12-23 10:04:31
Gravatar van Ohmydish Hi Nora, every oven is different. This might be the culprit, try baking the cake for less time. The outside should be crispy while having a softer inside. Hope this helps you!

Gravatar van Pym i have convection oven. plan on rolling magazines with foil cover. since not gas do you think its safe or will mold catch fire?
Ohmydish commented at 2019-05-14 19:05:21
Gravatar van Ohmydish It will not catch fire, convection oven means it's hot air circulation so not dangerous. We also have a convention oven and no gas :)

Gravatar van Alina You can use empty beer cans, covered in aluminium foil and well greased.
