Porzkuchen?? Phonetic

by Yvonne Garner
(Fenton MO USA)


Please help. I am looking for a recipe. Oma says it is a fried yeast dough rolled in sugar like a doughnut or funnel cake. Her mother made them for her birthday before they were driven out of Germany she grew up near Russian border.

When we go to Chinese buffet she comments that sugar coated biscuits on buffet are similar in taste.

She is 90 and I would like to make them for her next birthday as she talks about them often. Thanks for your help.

My Mutti made them in Berlin/Schoeneberg but we called them
"Nonnepfoerzchen", I do not have a recipe, but they were also called "Raderkuchen". Cut with the Radel about 1 1/4 inch wide x 5 inch long, slit down the middle 1 1/2 inch lengthways and then one end looped through the slit.
This might help in your research for a recipe.
I don't think it was a yeast dough?? Deep fried in
schwimmendem Fett in the Bratpfanne, and then rolled in granulated sugar. WAR LECKER !!!!
