Buchteln are an Austrian specialty and the most famous ones are served in the Cafe Hawelka in Vienna. The origin of the dish is the region of a former German part called “Bohemia” (Boehmen), but the recipes has found its way to Austria and Germany. In German they are called “Ofennudeln” which means translated “oven noodles”. You can fill them with plum jam (or in Austrian “Powidl Jam”), serve them with powdered sugar, vanilla sauce or just plain but always fresh from the oven. You bake them in a large form in the oven and they must stick together. Enjoy them as a main sweet dish or as a delicious dessert. Happy Cooking!
