Mini German Carnival Doughnuts

Ingredients (for approx. 30 pieces)

125 ml of milk


1 piece of fresh yeast (approx. 42 g)


1 tsp. of sugar


400 g of flour


1 pinch of salt


250 g of low-fat curd


100 g + 15 tsp. of Maintal Hagebutten Konfitüre extra [Rosehip Preserve extra]


2 eggs (medium-sized)


1 kg of clarified butter for deep-fat frying


125 g of icing sugar


Colourful sugar pearls for decoration


Flour for the hands and work surface


1. Heat milk in a small pot until lukewarm, then remove from the stove. Break up the yeast into a bowl. Mix with sugar until the yeast becomes fluid. Put flour, salt, quark, 100 g of preserve and eggs into a bowl, add yeast. Knead well using the mixer’s knead-hook attachment, while gradually adding milk. Then knead to a smooth dough with the hands. Cover and place in a warm place for approximately 45 minutes to allow the dough to rise.



2. Heat clarified butter in a tall pot. Apply flour to the hands and then form approximately 30 small balls out of the dough. Press the small balls flat on a four-covered work surface, create a hollow in the middle and fill each with 1/2 tsp. of preserve. Then enclose the preserve with the dough.



3. Place the balls a few at a time into the hot clarified butter. The temperature should be between 170–190 °C. Deep-fat fry the doughnuts for 2-4 minutes turning regularly, using a skimmer, remove the doughnuts and place on kitchen paper to allow the excess fat to drip off. Allow the doughnuts to cool. Mix icing sugar and 2 tbsp. of water until smooth. Decorate the doughnuts with icing sugar mixture and sugar pearls.
