Vienna in the Time of Puppenkrapfen
Coffee and Donut, anyone?


Puppenkrapfen
Puppenkrapfen at Demel may well be compared
to the first flowers that herald the arrival of spring,
only that these delicious morsels
promise a carnival season in full swing


Puppenkrapfen
How to pronounce it?
Alright, here we go,
everybody pronounce:
Poop-pen-crap-fen!
You are not laughing, are you?


While a Faschingskrapfen, carnival donut,
is usually the size of a donut,
the Puppenkrapfen is a smaller version,
dainty enough for Puppen,
the German word for "dolls"


One of the cutest food names
I have encountered here,
and one of the most delicious morsels, too

    There's Dunkin Donuts and then there's Demel's and I am sure that they are not possibly on the same planet!
