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.
> Do you think that Krapfen is an ancestor to doughnut?
