DIRECTIONS

  • Mix the yolks, butter, yeast, sugar and milk with the flour and let the dough sit in a warm place for about 30 minutes.
  • Mix it and let it sit again until its volume has doubled.
  • Then make about 20 little balls from it, which you should flatten slightly. Cover them with a kitchen towel and let them sit for another 30 minutes in a warm place.
  • Heat the oil in a pot and bake the Krapfen on both sides.
  • Take them out and let the excessive oil run off.
  • Mix the apricot jam with rum and use one of these fancy filling tools with a beak to inject the jam into the baked doughnuts.
  • Then cover them generously with icing sugar.
