Dutch Fruit Doughnuts
4 cup white all purpose flour, 500 gr.
2 tbsp yeast, 30 gr.
1 tsp salt, 5 gr.
2 cups milk, lukewarm, 1/2 liter
1/2 cup raisins, 125 gr.
1/2 cup currants, 125 gr.
1/3 cup candied lemon peel, 100 gr.
powdered sugar for garnish
oil for deep frying
In a mixer make a dough from the first four ingredients. Let rise
in warm place for appprox. 1 hour, or doubled in bulk.
Mix raisins and currants and candied citron in with the dough. Let
rise again. In the mean time, heat the oil to approx. 400 F. With
2 spoons, dipped in the oil, let dough slide from spoon into hot
oil. Balls will turn by itself when oil is at right temperature.
When the balls are light brown, lift balls out of oil, with slotted
spoon and let drain on paper towels, (cut open one ball, to make
sure they are done inside). Dust with powdered sugar.
Note: Optional: Add to the raisin mix, 1 peeled, cored, chopped
apple to the dough.
