Karneval Berliner – Filled with Jam AFTER Frying

Since publishing my original Berliner Recipe, I’ve made a few updates. Now I fill them BEFORE I fry this. This is the old way… filling after frying.

Both work well, it’s just a matter of preference.

Post-filling-

Pro:
– There won’t be a blow out while frying
– You can see what’s inside (if you make different flavors)
Con:
-Pastry bags can be messy
– There’s no hiding the mustard

Step By Step Photos for This Easy Berliner Recipe

Bring all the ingredients together to a sticky dough

 

Knead the Dough for 10 Minutes in A Mixer with a Dough Hook
or by hand on a counter…( It’s good exercise!)

Then Put the Dough into a Bowl, Cover with Plastic Wrap and Leave to Rise Until Doubled.
Should take 1 hour

Turn out dough onto a floured counter, and Knead a few times

Then use a Rolling Pin to roll out to 1/4 inch thick if you are filling before frying

Use a round cutter to cut out your Berliner. 3 inch is about perfect.
(With the 4 inch, I was able to make 12… 3 inch would have made 20?)

Lay the rounds on a cookie sheet, cover with a floured Tea Towel,
and let rise somewhere warm for 30 minutes.

Get Ready for Frying

Heat up the fryer, set out a place with paper towels to catch the Berliner,
set out a bowl with Sugar, and a rack to cool them on.

 

Risen, and ready to fry

Put two or three dough rounds CAREFULLY into the Oil,
you don’t want to crowd them, or knock the air out of them!

When the bottom is GOLDEN BROWN, carefully flip them over.
I found that with the 4 inch ones, 3 minutes on the first side, then 2 1/2 on the second side was perfect.
Smaller Berliner will probably need a little less time. Try 2 – 2 1/2 minutes per side.

Let the Browned Berliner sit on Paper Towel for a Minute
This will soak up any drippy oil

While the Berliner is STILL WARM, coat it in Sugar

Let it finish cooling on a rack

If you are filling after Frying-

Use a pastry bag with a larger tip for filling your Berliner. You CAN use a Zipper Bag… but make sure you have a big enough tip, and you take it slow. Small tips and flimsy bags lead to blown out bags, and a big mess. Plus you really want to make sure that you get loads of filling into the Berliner (not on your counter).

Fill a pastry bag with a tip, or a plastic zipper bag and a tip with the jelly or filling of your choice.
Around the edge of the Berliner is a lighter band… poke the tip into this part and move it around a bit while squeezing the filling into the Berliner.

You can (and I do) repeat on the opposite side, to insure maximum filling distribution.

I had Red Current Jelly, and a bit of Lemon Curd in my refrigerator, so I made both kinds.

I don’t think the Filling is supposed to ooze out the way mine does,
but I was kind of generous with the filling.

You can put a dab of filling on top, so you know which is which
