Haha, I clicked on the Faschingskrapfen myself and guess what I saw? The little Krapfen-Tower wouldn't stand straight in 2009 either! *dang*
Erinnert mich an den schiefen Turm von Pisa)) Köstlich!
Svet,mich auch! :-)
Dear Merisi, do these have bright red preserves in them? In one corner, no matter where you begin they alwyas end up at the end. The way dessert should be.
:-) and if I knew how to express drooling, I would.
I think the picture is quite perfect :)
The Puppenkrapfen has now pushed me over the edge and I must comment. I thoroughly enjoy your postings and, of course, those dealing with Vienna's restaurants, cafes, and FOOD! I was a student in Vienna (lived in the 9th) during the Summer months of 1963, and I have yet to return. Your postings are helping me to revisit Vienna and I find myself not only salivating over your food pictures but also the prospect of a return visit. I remain eager for your next posting. Thank you.
Is it Apricot jam inside?I'm sunk :(A total sucker for apricot jam...
Yes, Carol, filled with apricot jam,and of the finest source,DARBO's of Austria (that's my opinion). ;-)
Wow--do they look delicious or what!? Fabulous photo! ANd I'm drooling.
PWS:Welcome and thank you!I hope you will be able to return to Vienna soon! A Brush with Color,*smile*
GINA,I use an Austrian apricot jam filling.It jells enough so that the krapfen can be eaten without being too messy. ;-)A New Girl in Vienna,thank you! Vicki Lane,*smile*Thank you, Dorte! :-)I forgot to mention that I made those Krapfen myself. I learned how to make them before I moved to Vienna, simply because they were not readily available in Washington DC. It took me a couple of years to get the hang of it (and figuring out which American flour would make fluffy Krapfen instead of the stone-like mess I produced the first years)."No more baking Krapfen!" was my first thought when I moved to Vienna, where every bakery carries veritable wonderkrapfen at Carneval time. Well, the first Fat Tuesday in Vienna rolled around and I felt a little strange without baking Krapfen. By nightfall I missed the act of Krapfen baking terribly, and even more all the friends who always dropped in DC to help me eat them. Ash Wednesday morning I comforted myself by baking Krapfen. A day late, but it sort of helped dampen my homesickness.
Such a fabulous and delicious shot!
Thank you, Lady Fi! :-)
you have used a skewer, right:-)Oh, I remember this time, when you got a great cup of tea and as many Krapfen as you liked in Potomac. I really, really miss it....
Chez Wally,I missed you all, terribly.Had to eat too many Krapfen myself,now I am on a diet! ;-)
I have been thinking of you and dreaming of the Puppenkrapfen. I almost made them on Tuesday because I knew it would be my last day for sugar now that Lent has arrived. But, alas, non. I will have to dream for six more weeks. Your latest post just about did me in!Catherine xx
I definitely ate too much of them on that day...:)
Thank you for taking the time to leave a note.
