Also called Berliner in Northern Germany, these are tasty jelly-filled doughnuts or rounds, that are not only a staple of Faschings (Carneval), but also Silvester (New Years Eve). While many Germans will pop into their local bakery for a fresh batch the morning of the festive day, these can also be made by hand within a few hours.
