The MasterChef competition draws attention with its episode tonight. “Berliner”, also known as the German cake, marked the day in the program where the contestants competed fiercely with the concept of “7 local flavors from 7 countries”. So what are the tricks of making Masterchef Berliner dessert? How to make a MasterChef Berlin cake? Here is the original Berlin cake…
“German pie”or “Berlin” is a traditional German cake. It is similar to Donut in terms of form and construction. It is obtained by frying the fermented dough in oil, then dividing it into two, adding marmalade or jam and pouring caramelized sugar on it. Although it is associated with the city of Berlin because of its name, this dessert is not known as Berliner in Berlin. It is more commonly called Pfannkuchen.
Berliner is a kind of dumpling that can also be found in Turkey. It can be made at home, although it is a little troublesome to make because it is a yeast dough. Here, we present to you the perfect homemade krapfen recipe from Nermin Yazıtaş.
