OLIEBOLLEN – Dutch Doughnuts

I’ve been watching contestants on recent cooking shows struggling to successfully make doughnuts and thinking that it was a new dessert, that is until I found this old recipe in Mum’s collection.  It made me look up the meaning of Oliebollen and Wikipedia describes them as  “a traditional Dutch and Belgian food. They are called oliebollen in the Netherlands, while in Belgium they are also called smoutebollen and croustillons in French. In English they are more commonly known as Dutch Doughnuts or Dutchies.”  Whatever the name they taste great, just hope you have more success with them than some of the contestants.
