Things to know about Krofne Recipe

Krofne is a traditional Serbian air-filled doughnut. The shape difference from American doughnuts is that they don’t have a hole in the middle. They are round and pretty thick, but the inside is hollow. Because of that, they are often filled with jam, marmalade, chocolate, custard, or cream. The name came from the German word Krapfen which means “doughnut.”

This dish is a variation of the Central European pastry called Berliner and is also similar to Beignets. This dish is very popular among kids and is made for Easter, New Year’s Eve, and Christmas.
