[Sca-cooks] Trdelnik query

We're currently in Prague, which seems a very pleasant city to visit. 
One of the local products, mainly for tourists, is a pastry called 
"Trdelnik," which is claimed to be old. It's made by wrapping dough 
around a wooden cylinder then "baking" it over coals, continually 
turning the cylinder.

Does anyone here know if it's period, and if there are any period 
recipes? It's another way of producing pastry without an oven, in 
addition to our two Islamic frying pan pastries, so might be useful for 
Pennsic and similar contexts.
