Buchteln, also known as Rohrnudeln or Ofennudeln, are a type of sweet, yeast-based dumpling that is baked in the oven. This sweet yeast pastry originated in Austria and the Czech Republic. They are a popular treat enjoyed as a dessert.
Buchteln are made by taking small portions of sweet yeast dough and filling them with various sweet fillings such as Apricot fruit preserves, Nutella, or sweetened poppy seed filling. The filled dough portions are then shaped into balls and placed close together in a baking dish or pan, where they rise and expand during baking.
