Do you fancy some blueberry crinkles? After all the cakes in the Christmas season, I once again felt like a very simple pastry with berries. The yeast dough will cost you some waiting time, but otherwise the donuts are made very quickly.
Blueberry curls and mini snails – with yeast dough
I warn you before – don’t put on anything white and hang on a big apron, if you like to drop something while baking! In the meantime, when I bake Maike, I took a picture that nearly caused her to make an emergency call, and it was just blueberry sauce. One of my most beautiful linen tablecloths is now dotted red and blue as a souvenir of the action. Luckily the blueberries tasted Kringel!
Blueberry curls and mini snails – that’s what you need
The amount is enough for 8 larger blueberry curls or many small snails – I always like to make a colorful mix when visiting and I prepare different things. If you are really hungry then you can take a big ring – the little snails are much easier to eat with a haps and they are always going away!
For the yeast dough
- 500 grams of flour
- A small pinch of salt
- 10 grams of dry yeast
- 200 milliliters of milk
- 60 grams of sugar
- 50 grams of butter
- 2 small to medium sized eggs
For the blueberry filling
- 1 glass of blueberries in juice
- 1 tablespoon of sugar
- 1 teaspoon of cinnamon
- 1 teaspoon of starch
- 1 pair tablespoons powdered sugar
- lemon juice
Blueberry curls and mini snails – that’s how it’s done
Drain the butter in a saucepan and set aside. Warm the milk a bit until it is lukewarm. Add the sugar and the yeast and let it work a bit. In the meantime, mix your flour and salt in a large bowl. Stir in eggs, melted butter and the yeast milk and knead well with the Knetharken of your mixer until a nice dough is formed. Leave it in a warm place for at least 45 minutes.
In the meantime, you can boil the blueberries with sugar, cinnamon and starch a little thick. Put her aside and let her cool.
Preheat the oven to 200 degrees and knead your dough after the walk again properly on a floured surface. Then take the half and roll it out to a rectangular piece. Brush the surface with some of the blueberry sauce. Then roll both sides of the rectangle tightly to the middle and divide the two rolls in the middle. Cut the rolls again so that you get four small rolls.
If you want to make small snails, just cut small slices off the rolls and place them on a baking sheet of baking paper. For the kringle, cut the roll lengthwise and twirl the two halves with the open sides upwards. It does not depend on perfection, just try something! Keep some blueberry sauce, it will taste great after the finished rings!
The baking time is 15 minutes, a little longer with the large curls. After cooling, you can make a frosting from a teaspoon of lemon juice and some powdered sugar. Just mix so much powdered sugar with the juice until you like the consistency.
The Blueberry Kringel is best enjoyed fresh, then they taste the best!
