Krapfen is a fairly broad term covering fritters, turnovers and other fat 
fried pastries including Berliners.  I would argue that Cato's Globi are an 
early form of doughnut and they appear to be a close ancestor to recipe 173 
"Wie man krepflen pfligt zu niernberg jn der fasnacht zu machen" from Sabina 
Welser.  Thus Krapfen are likely in the true line of doughnut evolution.

I would also argue that placenta has nothing to do with doughnuts, so I 
would flag the article that initiated this thread as being of questionable 
accuracy until it can be verified.
