Fried Dumplings


This is another typical Dutch sweet.


  • ½ lb. of flour
  • ½ oz. of yeast, just under ½ pint of lukewarm milk
  • 2 ozs. of raisins, the same of currants
  • 1 oz. of candied lemon peel
  • 1 chopped apple, the juice of ½ a lemon and a pinch of salt.


Make a stiff dough with the ingredients, mixing in the yeast, previously dissolved in a little warm milk. Work well, shape into a ball, cover and set to rise for 1 hour. Have ready an iron pot with hot oil, drop in 2 teaspoons of the mixture at a time and cook for a few minutes to a light brown. Drain and sprinkle with sugar.
