It’s Carnival. Just like we’d eat elephant ears at a State Fair, they’ve got their own versions of fat laden, sugary dough here too – but it’s better.
This morning, I just tried one thing – the Eierlikor Krapfen. Oh my goodness! It is SUCH a good thing that I only got one because that was so delicious that I easily could have eaten 3. It looked almost like an overgrown donut hole, but with a rugged outside and a puff of a dense custard on top with just the slightest hint of eierlikor – not overpowering at all. Instead of a soft spongy donut, this broke apart into a soft, but slightly crisp pastry dough and the entire center was overfilled with that amazing sweet custard. Wow. Carneval could grown on me…. and with treats like this. I think I’d grow a bit too if Carneval lasted all year.
