I also remember when Krispy Kreme doughnuts came here and people made a fuss about them. I would say yes glue flour and water. But I do like a nice doughnut hard to find gf ones. Of course now those doughnuts are purchased at 7 eleven stores, that has made them less special.Yep I gave up my chocolate bullets. Lol. More fish meals.
A Berliner Pfannkuchen (referred to as Berliner for short in many regions outside Berlin—especially in the West, but Pfannkuchen inside Berlin—and in many other regions, mostly in the north east of Germany, Kreppel in Hesse, and Krapfen in Bavaria) is a traditional German pastry similar to a doughnut with no central hole, made from sweet yeast dough fried in fat or oil, with a marmalade or jam filling and usually icing, powdered sugar or conventional sugar on top. They are sometimes made with chocolate, champagne, custard, mocha, or advocaat filling, or with no filling at all.
They look tasty. Are they similiar to the Jewish doughnut for Chanukah. ?When I wrote "doughnut", I did not mean the US-style doughnut.
I only used doughnut for want of a better word.
I do not think anyone here knows "Fasnachts-Küchle" or "Faschings-Krapfen".
Now I have found an English text to explain what I mean:
These "Berliners" are very popular here in pre-Lent times.
