Donuts are popular.

Especially at carnival time.

The local bakers are creative – and offer numerous versions.

Geretsried/Bad Tölz-Wolfratshausen – It is round, has an average diameter of eight centimeters, and there is a sweet filling hidden inside: the doughnut.

Especially during the carnival season, the local bakers show their creativity in order to be able to offer their customers a large selection of the fluffy yeast pastries.

The donut wedding begins this week at the Büttner Bakery in Tölz.

“We have been officially selling our new variety, the pistachio doughnut, since last Wednesday,” reveals junior boss Maximilian Büttner proudly.

It is filled with pistachio cream and garnished with a pistachio topping.

There are a total of eleven varieties on display in the family business's counter that customers have to choose between.

For carnival: Donuts cost between 1.90 euros and 2.90 euros in a bakery

Depending on the variant, a donut costs between 1.90 euros and 2.90 euros.

Despite inflation and rising prices: According to Büttner, people don't seem to be saving money when buying carnival pastries.

“Instead of a quark dumpling or a bee sting, customers simply grab a donut during carnival season.”

The junior boss is also open to unusual exotic foods such as the Leberkas doughnut.

“After all, you always have to try new things,” says Maximilian Büttner with a grin.

But adds: “We only make sweet versions.

Nobody has ever asked us about savory foods.”

On a good day during the fifth season, a good 300 to 400 donuts go over the counter of the Königsdorf bakery, reports boss Michael Iglhaut.

The master baker offers nine different varieties.

The versions with eggnog and vanilla are particularly in demand at the moment.

Iglhaut has given the latter a new twist this year: “So far it was available with a cream and vanilla filling, but now I have switched to a pure vanilla filling.” This makes the taste of the vanilla a little more intense.

The price for the sweet baked goods from Königsdorf is between 1.90 and 2.90 euros per piece.

At carnival time: up to 400 donuts are sold over the counter on a good day

The Wolfratshausen-Geretsried Lions Club delivers donuts directly to your door as part of its “Donut Feast” charity campaign.

Club member Monica Schaller is still accepting orders until today, Tuesday, February 6th.

“So far we have received a whole series of orders,” says Schaller happily.

The sweet baked goods from the Königsdorf bakery can either be ordered to your own company or sponsored by social institutions.

Demand for spelled donuts has increased significantly - “It’s now one of our standards”

When it comes to carnival pastries, Marina Burger, head of the bakery of the same name, has noticed a development in recent years: the demand for spelled donuts has increased significantly in her branches in Wolfratshausen, Geretsried and Berg.

“That’s why the spelled donut with strawberry filling is now one of our standards.”

Apart from that, many other varieties are created in the bakery during carnival time: such as chocolate, yeast dumplings - or the classic with apricot filling.

The prices per pastry are between 2 and 3.95 euros.

The craft business only offers an XXL donut with your desired filling if you order it.

“In terms of weight, it’s about the same as eight normal doughnuts,” says Burger.

“Not much,” however, is what the baker’s boss thinks of savory exotic foods.

“But with larger orders from companies, a mustard donut is always requested for fun,” she reveals with a wink.
