Krapfen are donuts that originated in Austria.
Even if Candlemas has passed, why not extend this period dedicated to pancakes with this Austrian delicacy, first cousin of our donuts.
Crispy on the outside, Krapfen has a chewy, pasty internal texture to which the jam gives a slightly sticky dimension. This invigorating dessert can turn out to be "Christian suffocates" quite quickly if the dough is insufficiently leavened or cooked. He therefore calls for drinks that will bring lightness to the whole.
This is the characteristic of effervescent. Thus, with any red fruit jam, a Cerdon with aromas of strawberries and raspberries will play this role perfectly. But many Loire producers also produce sparkling rosé wines, most often made from the Gamay grape variety, which here offer the most interesting pairing possibilities, provided they are not chosen too dry.
On the other hand, with an apple garnish, a ½ dry cider will go perfectly.
Price ideas (in 2011):
- Cerdon 5 to 8 €
- Sparkling rosé from gamay € 4 to 8
- Cider ½ sec 2 to 6 €
