It’s time to start the Sekler cake Parties

2015. május 22.

We are baking the favorite of my daughters every weekend– Bake’n’Roll Sekler cake testing period – article from Szabóné Németh Tímea’s blog. She was the lucky one, who won the Sekler cake testing competition, organized by Praktiker. Congratulations to her! Here is her article about her experiences:

To a housewife who is dedicated to the cookies and cakes and loves to bake outdoor as well, this was the best opportunity to try the charcoal oven Sekler cake machine. I had the chance to test one and now I would like to share experiences.

1. The day of arrival
The Bake'n'Roll came in a demanding "suitcase". At first the weight was a little bit surprising to me, we I took over from the courier. Based on the preliminary images I expected an easier package.

When I opened the package I found myself facing with a nice and systematic interior, which included the detailed installation instructions and even the batteries, so even after the assembly it can be used immediately. The quality and the detailed elaboration of the elements of the oven was a pleasant surprise.


On the first weekend after the arrival of the package we tried out the device for real. There were plenty of events: Sunday afternoon barbecue, ad-hoc nature weekday evening Sekler cake party and finally even a Sunday afternoon "fun". It can be described as fun, since with the Bake'n'Roll it is really simple to bake. In the box we have received a recipe for the dough and it is much more subtle and much easier to use than the one I have used previously. Special thanks to Vitéz Kürtős for the recipe and for the assembly video.

2. The first test
Our first baking began on a sunny Sunday. First of all, I made the dough on the basis of the accompanying recipe. Since, despite having a very good oven, if there is no good dough.

While the dough was rising, we had enough time to assemble the oven and prepare the charcoal. The oven has been assembled in a few minutes even at the first time. We did not want to use any lighter fluid, we prepared the embers in our barbeque in advance, and then we placed it to the Bake’n’Roll and added charcoal to it. A 2.5 kg of charcoal was enough to prepare 2 servings of cakes. The half-hour hatching time is enough to have the right embers.

After the first steps in the manual, came the Sekler cake baking to live.

Step-by-step:
1. From the risen dough we take out a small dose of it and make 1 finger thick strips by hand, it should be about 1m long. Roll the dough to the preheated oiled wooden spit carefully. Leave 1 finger strip remaining between the dough strips on the wooden spit and keep distance from the sides. Otherwise during the baking the dough would rise on the wooden spit and it will be very hard to remove the cake. (The first two cakes wasn’t the prettiest Sekler cakes ever, but at least we tried my children’s ideas and they ate it quickly before I had the chance to take a picture).


2. Flatten the dough on the wooden spit on the table in front of the wood oven to obtain the right shape of the dough, then oil the dough and roll into the sugar and put over the charcoal!

3. Place the motor on the end of the wooden spit and you can start baking. Over the suitable coals approx. 2-3 minutes is enough to make delicious cakes.
And last but not least, the end result:



If I could not convince you with my pictures, here's a video, which really shows how simple and easy it is to use the Bake’n’Roll.



At the very end it is time to summarize the lessons learned with a few words.

Pros:
1. Attractive and high quality packaging, which contains detailed and easily understandable instructions. The assembly did not last more than 10 minutes with even we took pictures of the process. You do not need a screwdriver, pliers or any other tools. Dismantling is also very easy.
2. Because of the packaging it is easy to carry and can be used anywhere, but only where there is a fire ignited license.

3. It is very easy to use and with a little practice you can make delicious cakes could be made. I highly recommend it to the beginner bakers, they will love this little machine. Sekler cake could be a good final chord of any garden parties. Not to mention, that these home made cakes are much cheaper than the ones which you can buy in the Vitéz Kürtős houses.
4. In spite of the grill engine low performance 3 portions of Sekler cakes could be (approx. 30 pieces) baked.


Cons:
1. Although in the description attached to the package only written "engine", I did not recognize it is only one piece. I was little frustrated when I found the fact that the packaging contains one engine for the two wood spit. 2 engines would certainly make faster the baking. I think that the two engines could fit into the price of 39,990 HUF, especially knowing that the manufacturer offers it on the web shop for 1,500 HUF.
(Editor's note: One engine is also a gift, because the real Sekler cake baking experience comes when you can rotate it by hand over the coal, as our grandmothers on the edge of the stove).

2.The engine overheats after a while, it will give a buzzer sound, but after cooling down it disappears.

3. After Baking you must wait to completely extinguish the embers. It could be several hours depending on the amount of the embers. We can only clean the oven after it. A cleaning door would be a practical on it, where we can take the coals out, and we can put out the embers, since on an evening baking occasion it is not sure I would feel like to wait for several hours to extinguish the embers.
(Editor's note: If you do not want to wait for hours, you can remove the furnace chamber with gloves, put the embers into a tin pot and pour off with water the components will cool down in minutes, and can be packed away!)

To be honest I was thinking about to buy this machine several times, but without trying, I would not be enough brave to get it. Otherwise, you do not know how it will work and how you can bake with it.
After repeated testing and knowledge of the above, the view is that although this product is not cheap, but I can safely recommend it to all of those who would like to bake Sekler cake at home. And it is not a problem, if you do not have big routine in the "kitchen".

If you decide to purchase this product, this is a long-term return on your investment for sure and of course the barbecue together with your friends and family will be a great experience for all.

It is sure this little smart gadget became very dear to my heart in very short time.
