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.

Once baked, Buchteln are often served warm, dusted with powdered sugar, and sometimes accompanied by a drizzle of vanilla sauce or a dollop of whipped cream. The pastry is known for its soft, fluffy texture and the delightful burst of flavor from the sweet filling inside.
