Berliner, also known as Krapfen and Pfannkuchen, is a rather doughnut-like German treat usually eaten during Silvester (New Year’s Eve) as well as through the Karneval holidays. It is made by deep-frying a sweet enriched dough, filling it with jam or marmalade through a single hole and topping it with powdered sugar, rum-flavoured sugar or granulated sugar. For a party joke or roulette-like game, you can full some of the Berliners with mustard. Just a few though – you won’t want to waste a lot of these delicious Beliners!
We know that this is our second relatively unhealthy dish we have shared this week, but we believe that it’s okay to treat yourself once in a while and this is an easy and delicious way to do so. Don’t worry, we’ll get back to our healthier (yet, so delicious) recipes after this one.
If you don’t have a piping bag or piping tip, you can still follow this recipe. We have a few tricks we’ll share with you so you can fill your Berliners without having to purchase piping equipment.
