Ich bin ein Berliner {#Project 365 - Day 41}

(snapped with my Samsung Galaxy SII, uploaded via Blogger)

I thought I am going to be nice to my co-workers and decided to bring a box with a variety of "Krapfen" into work from our fantastic local bakery. Needless to say that the team was pleased and it was not long before a lengthy discussion about the word "Krapfen" ensued.

The original is called a Berliner Pfannkuchen and is a jam filled, sugar coated doughnut but there are as many variations (filled with cream, custard, baileys...) as there are names for it. Since we're such an international team, I wrote about it here, the discussion was hefty but in the end we agreed to disagree and everyone is going to call it what they like as long as they are tasty and available. Nom, nom, nom.
