Recipe: ultra-soft Carnavid fritters

Carnival donuts


The Carnival period is synonymous with verwürelter (donuts) in Luxembourg, a true tradition in the country! We give you our recipe, which will delight both children and adults.

Verwürelter are donuts in the form of knots and were originally prepared in the Grand Duchy for Mardi Gras.  

Easily available in bakery and pastry, and this throughout the year now, it is quite possible to make them at home: a very nice activity to do with children during holidays!

  • 500 gr. of flour
  • 80 gr. sugar
  • 80 gr. soft butter
  • 20 gr. fresh yeast
  • 170 ml. of milk
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 pinch of salt
  • Oil for frying

Heat the milk . When it is lukewarm, pour it into a container and crumble the flour . Let stand 10 minutes.

In a large, deep dish, pour sifted flour. Add sugar , butter , yeast , eggs , salt , and milk with yeast.
