4:04pm berliner

04-12 berliner
I've been so excited to try out the new German-style bakery Landbrot , mostly because I read they have berliners. Our love for doughnuts is infinite, and I hope we relay our feelings loud and clear on this blog. A few years ago when we went to Berlin, we fell in LOVE with one of their Berliners (aka pfannkuchen). Now we didn't go around trying many in the city, so we're not certain how representative of pfannfuchen these were. However we were more than certain that we felt this Berliner to be one of God's gift to the edible world. Considering how much we loved them in Berlin I was actually prepared for some degree of disappointment. And I'm glad to report that my disappointment was less than expected. These were not heavenly, but really good with a nice chew to the dough texture, which was one of the things that sold us on the pfannkuchen in Berlin. I'm not sure it would replace my Donut Pub addiction, but it will become an addition to my doughnut purveyors, which just means I will be eating more doughnuts. Willkommen Landbrot!

I tried the sesame brezeln. One advice - don't leave it overnight or else it'd dry up and harden. :)

What other items would you recommend? Too bad the breads are so expensive! :(

@kim - the berliner was the only thing we've tried, I bought it in the morning on my way to work. Will let you know when we try more!
