107Re: [cooking_rumpolt] German bread recipes
- Sep 7, 2007Although "weck" is a dialectic word for a breakfast roll in German, here in the US and
specifically in Buffalo New York, the only time "weck" is used is in conjunction with
"kimmelweck". If one wanted a plain roll and used a German word, one would use "brötchen" or
"semmel". If you went into a German bakery in Buffalo and asked for "weck", they wouldn't inquire
as to what kind you wanted. They would just give you a kimmelweck roll. What you would get if
you ordered "weck" in a bakery in Germany, I am not sure.
