Served with a generous dollop of cream, this sweet treat will surely delight your guests. It is perfect for party season!

“I remember serving this up in Uncle James's cafe when I was a little girl. He served it with a big dollop of whipped cream that came out of a funny machine that you had to put a little gas canister into, like a SodaStream. It made the cream puff up like a Mr Whippy. 

I loved pushing down on the lever and making a bigger pile of cream than what was respectable. I have no idea why it is Bavarian. It just makes it sound so unique. I don't think he ever went to Bavaria, but we all have our secrets,” says culinary expert Sophie Thompson.
