OLIEBOLLEN (Dutch Dough Balls)
This is the traditional treat served at New Year's Eve. My mum makes them every year and she insists in using sour apples in it. At New Year's Eve friends & family gather to celebrate the coming of the new year by playing games, watching television etc. One can be certain to find a huge bowl/tray filled with oliebollen.
Put the flour in a bowl, make in the center a depression and pour the yeast, which has been dissolved with a bit of lukewarm milk, into the hole. Add the remaining milk and stir.
Deep fry the oliebollen quickly until brown and thoroughly done. They should be soft and not oil soaked inside.
