Krofne, also known as Krafne, Krofi etc are doughnuts with fillings. The name comes from German Krapfen, and it is a variation of the Central European pastry, known as Berliner.(Source: Wikipedia)
After seeing this dessert being prepared in a TV show, I was tempted to try it out. The result was a not-so-sweet airy doughnut. I used Chocolate ganache as filling. Both my boys loved it.
I followed the recipe from MKR but halved the recipe. The recipe I’m sharing is the original one.
