We are with a recipe that will blow your mind. Let me warn you first before you start to complain about this recipe being addictive.
This recipe is one of the least I’ve worked on. Because I only used my berliner and lemon curd recipes together. I only portioned my berliner recipe to match the amount in my lemon cream recipe. As a result, I can say that lemon curd has found the place it deserves to be. An incredible taste came out.
I have to remind what I explained in oliebollen recipe regarding the berliner recipe. Frying dough is something that requires experience and attention. If the oil is very hot, they will quickly turn into brown on the outside and remain raw inside, and if the oil is not hot enough, they will absorb a lot of oil. In this case, dough with a high protein content such as berliner and oliebollen are browned in a shorter time than dough fries made with simple yeast dough like kolaç. This increases the likelihood of them not cooked enough inside. For this reason, pay utmost attention to the heat of the oil and cook the berliners by turning them frequently, so that they are exposed to heat that is enough to cook them inside, without allowing one side to burn.
I recommend that you consume Berliner on the same day to eat it in its most delicious form and in the best consistency. If you have to keep them, you can store them in the fridge without sprinkling powdered sugar on them. Microwave them before eating will help them freshen up.
