I'm afraid most all of you are missing out on this German pastry delicacy known as "Little Mountain Peaks" (also called "mountain climber" or "shrapnel" in some parts of the country):
cocoa, buttercream, waffle floor & shortcrust mixed together, covered in dark chocolate. So yummy 💕
@fribbledom What is a waffle floor and a shortcrust?
Shortcrust is a form of dough and waffle floor. Well, it's the floor of pastry waffles 😉
@fribbledom I have no idea what those are. 🤷
Huh, really? Here's a picture of waffles:
Shortcrust is often used as a flan case / bottom for cakes.
@fribbledom How do you define a floor of a waffle then? Is it just the grid part of a waffle?
@fribbledom Oh my God, I would murder that
@fribbledom Woooooow, that looks delicious!
@fribbledom ooh those do sound nice, they look erm...odd - but sound like they contain all the ingredients of a good snack.
@fribbledom Oh, and it's missing from https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_German_desserts !
Someone's ought to fix that! 😆
@fribbledom The original recipe is sweeping up the bakery, however. ;)
@fribbledom I want one!
@fribbledom Didn't know we had this in Germany. 🤔
@fribbledom we call those flødeboller ("cream buns") in Denmark. They used to have an extremely racist name, that I'm not going to write online.
Aren't those filled with creamy, sugary stuff? They also exist in Germany, are called "Schaumkuesse" nowadays, and also used to have that racist name.
@fribbledom you're right, it does look like a different filling.
This should go well with espresso... ☕
@ranx Little Mountain Pac Man. ;)
@fribbledom tell me this shows up on Great British Bake Off....
@fribbledom Okay... I've never seen those, but I want them now.
Where can I get them? A pastry shop, or shop for sweets and chocolate?
And yes, I'm from germany :D
You'll usually find them in regular bakeries and pastry shops. Let me know how you like them!
@fribbledom straight to the hip 😂
Most certainly 😂
@fribbledom What's the German name? I'm planning a trip to Germany. I searched for "Kleingipfel" and "Gipfelchen" but didn't turn up anything relevant.
You'll commonly find them as "Gipfel", "Bergsteiger" or "Granatsplitter". Let me know how you like them! 😊
@fribbledom oh my, I think I need about a dozen or so. For research purposes. Yeah, research.
@fribbledom omg I need it
@fribbledom I am German and have never heard of it. What is the German name and in which region is it common?
"Gipferl", "Bergsteiger" oder "Granatsplitter".
Rather popular in the south, but I've also seen them in Berlin and Cologne.
