    I've just been to the European Christmas market that we hold in Manchester, and I've eaten something from a German bakery stall that sounded a bit like "knupfen"

    It was basically the World's nicest doughnut - filled with plum jam and sprinkled with icing sugar and cinnamon. yummy.gif

    Can anyone please tell me what this is called and if there is a recipe on 'Zaar?

    You probably mean "Krapfen". I've searched for a "filled" Krapfen. Here is a recipe:

    500 g all purpose flour
    40 g baker's yeast
    30 g sugar
    1/8 - 1/4 litre lukewarm milk
    2 1/2 teaspoons vanilla sugar
    3 drops bitter almond extract (or oil)
    1 pinch salt
    100g unsalted butter, melted
    2 eggs
    1 egg yolk

    For the filling:
    1 egg white
    300 g plum jam

    For Dusting
    caster sugar


    Sieve flour into a large bowl and make a well in the middle. Crumble baker's yeast into well and add 1 tablespoon of the sugar to it. Pour milk over it and mix gently with a little of the flour to make a "pre-dough". Set aside on a warm place for about 15 minutes.

    Add all other ingredients. Knead the dough with hands for about 5 to 10 minutes. Use some additional flour, if the dough is too sticky. The dough is ready, if the consistency is elastic and bubbles occur while kneading. Cover and let rise in a warm place for 40-50 minutes or until doubled in volume.

    Knead the dough again and then roll out on a sligthly floured working space to a thickness of about 1/2 cm.

    On one half of the dough "mark" circles of about 6-7 cm in diameter. Brush the edges of the circles sligthly with egg white. Place in the centre of each circle a little of jam.

    cover this with the other half of the dough. Now cut out the marked circles. Press the edges together and let rise again until the Krapfen have doubled in size.

    Heat up the oil for deep frying. Fry the Krapfen until golden brown.

    Remove from oil with slotted spoon and drain on paper towels.

    Sprinkle with caster sugar

    Thanks very much - that definitely sounds like them.

    I can't wait to get cooking now, but I don't think they'll help the diet much...
