Salzkipfel – Szálckippl ( from Wemend )


  • 1 kg Flour
  • 2 Eggs
  • 50g Yeast
  • 3 Table spoons of oil
  • 1 large table spoon lard
  • Milk


Dissolve the yeast in some milk. Add the flour, eggs, oil and lard. Knead it all together and add enough milk, to make a smooth dough. Let the dough rest for about 30-40 min.

Divide the dough in 8 pieces. Use a rolling pin to roll each of the 8 pieces to a cirkle. Spread some extra lard on the cirkle and cut it into 8 pieces  again. This way you will get 8 triangular shaped pieces. Roll thise pieces into “Kipfels”, shaped like a croissant. Spread some whiskered egg, salt and  caraway on top of each Kipfel.

Backe them in the oven at 200°C for 20 min.
