I am looking for a recipe for a square yeast doughnut with raisins that my mother always made the evening of Shrove Tuesday. (The day before Ash Wednesday).
The doughnut is fried in the fryer and then put in a bag of sugar to coat it.
That was the only day they were made. I would love to bring this tradition back into my family.
My family comes from a town near Karlsruhe, Germany. If that helps any.

This doesn't sound at all familiar with me. I've tried all sorts of pronunciation for the Kiek-al-kee but it could be in one of the many dialects that are throughout Germany.
Even though your family comes from the area around Karlsruhe, it's possible that ancestors long ago came from one of the other countries surrounding Germany and this recipe came with them.
It does sound delicious though! I love recipes that are tied to holidays and just kept for those occasions.
I hope someone recognizes this and is able to help you.
