Eggless Hungarian Kipfels/Eggless Kiffles

Kipfels or Kiffles are Hungarian sweet rolls often prepared for family gatherings especially for birthday, anniversary, wedding or simply for a get together as snack.Usually these addictive pastry style rolls goes for rich dough. Kipfels are traditionally prepared with lards, loads of eggs, butter and cream. Kipfels looks almost like crescent shaped and they are not large. Eventhough Kipfles goes for very rich dough, they also goes for fillings prepared with either nuts, cream cheese,cinnamon or else fruit fillings like prunes, apricots. When its comes to make this super rich Hungarian kipfels are eggless, its seriously a real challenge for us. But still i tried my hands to make this eggs,butter, cream loaded kipfels as completely eggless eventhough i went for butter and cream cheese. Trust me these kipfels are dangerously addictive.

The original recipe goes for Lekvar, an apricot jam prepared especially for making this Kipfels. But i prepared mine with strawberry jam and also skipped the sugar used in for nut coating as i felt this Kipfels are already very sweet.However strawberry jam works wonder in this Hungarian rolls. My kids enjoyed thoroughly this yeasted kiffles with their glass of milk for their evening snacks. This eggless Hungarian Kipfels are our this month's challange for Baking Eggless,a monthly event owned by Gayathri.
