Guess That Pastry – 2010

Guess the Austrian pastry.

Guess the Austrian pastry.

Once upon a time a swarthy musician from from India was entertaining people on the streets of Vienna. A baker’s wife found the Indian man to be exotic and attractive. In fact, she slipped him a note that said “let’s elope.” The baker told his wife to get back to the bread dough. The wife threw a piece of dough at her husband but missed and the dough landed near the oven. The dough ended up cooking in a way that puffed up. The wife filled it with whipped cream and slipped one to the Indian man. He smiled. She threw her apron into the oven’s firebox and ran off with the Indian. What’s the pastry?

From one of the world’s great regions of deserts, Austria, we will bring you more “guess that pastry” events soon. Please enjoy as the sacrifice to make this possible is rather large, as in requiring a whole new set of ski pants.

    The delicious pastry you’re referring to is Krapfen.
