Carnival Schenkeli

Home-bake recipe

Have you been looking for a sweet, carnival recipe? Schenkeli – the ‘little thighs’, which describes their appearance – are not only really easy to make but indescribably tasty. They are as much a part of a Swiss carnival as masks, Guggenmusik bands and the Schnitzelbank (amusing and satirical texts that take the mickey out of people and current events). Here is a little hint: These little cakes are at their best when still a little warm. Kept in tin they will stay fresh for up to a week – unless they haven’t been eaten before! Follow the steps in the recipe and enjoy this tasty cake.

Wishing you a fun carnival time!
