Walking the streets of Prague offers many street vendors peddling their wares from trinkets to sausages. One of the things worth stopping and indulging in is Trdlo, a tasty cake, donut, pastry like concoction.
First made in Hungary, it soon spread to The Czech Republic and Slovakia. The word Trdlo refers to the wooden spit that the dough is wrapped around. The dough is kneaded out and wrapped around a Trdlo and cooked over hot embers usually from wood. After which it is rolled in a generous supply of sugar and sometimes crushed walnuts as well. It is served warm and goes well with a cup of coffee on a cool day.
For a cost of 50 Kc ($2.50) it beats a donut any day of the week.
