What is a Schrippe?


A regional term for a Broetchen (Kaiser roll). Buy them at a bakery, as the factory-made ones available at supermarkets taste horrible. The overall term "Broetchen" means 'small bread'. There are varieties, such as "Zwiebelbroetchen" (onion), "Kaesebroetchen" (cheese), or Schinkenbroetchen (ham). Most are very good.

Note that "Schrippe" is a word only used in Berlin. Most of the rest of the country doesn't know what that means. It is made with water whereas the "Knueppel" is made with milk.
