OK you guys, as a follow up to the pfannkuchen post, as I like to call it, which seriously went beyong and above what I could have imagined in my wildest dreams. All the responses totally validated my point, it was amazing.
Let’s see. First there was the “Wtf is Eierkuchen doing here” question.
Guys, my whole point was that in German it can be pretty damn confusing to figure out what is a pancake and what is a jelly doughnut and what the exact term is for both in which region. So. Eierkuchen is well within its rights to be here.
And then, the chaos started.
Oh, also, I had forgotten a few terms (mainly because I, having grown up in northern Germany and having family in the Rhineland, was always under the impression that Palatschinken is ACTUALLY MEAT WHAT THE FUCK)
Some people even added helpful pictures (to be fair, I don’t know how helpful those turned out to be)!
SO! To sum up: the distinction and proper terms for pancakes and jellydoughnuts vary from region to region and can be really fucking hard.
(My version would be: Jelly doughnut = Berliner, Pfannkuchen=Pancake, Krapfen=sth fried and close to Quarkbällchen and Muzen, Eierkuchen=I never use this, I thought it meant Omelette until like 3 years ago)
Keep it up guys, I love you all <3
