DELICIOUS CREPES FILLED WITH RASPBERRY JAM

My dears, tomorrow is women’s carnival and I’m sooo excited because I’m going to my first carnival party with two dear friends. Ok, I loved Mardi Gras as a kid, but I’ve been avoiding the fifth season since adolescence. It’s just not my thing, not the dressing up, not the music and neither is the excessive alcohol. The only good thing about carnival is the Kreppel, in this case filled with fruity raspberry jam. By the way, according to Duden, Kreppel is wrong, because they are actually written with “ä”, since the word comes from Krapfen. However, most Hessians think that the word Krappel looks stupid and therefore the spelling with “e” is widespread.

There are a number of variations on the name anyway, with Berliner being the most common. In East Germany they are known as pancakes, in Austria as carnival donuts, in southern Germany they are just called donuts and in the Ruhr area and Sauerland they are called Berliner Ballan. For the small calorie bombs, a sweet yeast dough is made with egg, milk and butter and fried in hot oil. The proportion of egg is high because this reduces the absorption of fat during baking. After baking, they are refined with jam using a piping bag. I like them best with raspberry or strawberry jam and unfilled with granulated sugar on top.
