A Berliner Pfannkuchen — or Krapfen for short — is a traditional, doughnut-like German pastry made from fried yeast dough. Lacking a hole in the center, it's usually filled with jam or marmalade and iced or sprinkled with powdered sugar on top. Taking a lighter approach, this version is baked until golden. Fill it with your favorite addition, such as cream or Nutella.

Ingredients

  • 190 grams all purpose flour
  • 70 grams rice flour
  • 250 grams strong flour
  • 1 packet active dry yeast
  • 90 grams sugar
  • 5 grams salt
  • 50 milliliters vegetable oil
  • 2 eggs
  • 200 milliliters milk (warm)
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • cream
  • cream
  • jelly
  • jelly
  • Nutella
  • powdered sugar

Directions

  1. Knead all the flours, yeast, sugar, salt, oil, eggs, milk, and the vanilla extract together and let the dough rise for 2 hours.
  2. Heat the oven to 180C for 5 minutes and turn it off.
  3. Place the dough onto a floured work surface and cut it into pieces weighing 50 grams each.
  4. Flatten each piece of dough and place a teaspoon of filling in the center, then seal the dough by closing it into a ball.
  5. Place the balls of dough 1 inch apart onto a baking sheet lined with wax paper, and place in the oven to rise for approximately 1 hour until they have doubled in size. Remove the baking sheet from the oven.
  6. Preheat the oven to 180C and bake on the top rack for approximately 15 minutes, until the surface is golden.
  7. Remove the baking sheet from the oven, let the krapfen cool, sprinkle with powdered sugar and serve.

The krapfen have a doughnut like taste to them. They are good sprinkled with powdered sugar while they are still hot. These have quickly become a breakfast favorite in our household. Don't over mix the dough when making them. Stir the batter just enough to incorporate ingredients or they won't turn out as soft in texture.
