Ingredients[edit | edit source]

Procedure[edit | edit source]

  1. Dissolve sugar in warm water. Sprinkle yeast on top. Let stand for about 10 minutes.
  2. In a large mixing bowl, beat eggs until mixed. Add scalded milk, warm water, yeast mixture, and margarine. Beat well.
  3. Add flour, sugar, and salt. Mix well. Add diced apple.
  4. Let dough rise in a warm place until doubled in size. A lobster pot works well for this.
  5. In a separate bowl, mix the sugar with cinnamon to taste. Set aside.
  6. Fill a fryer pot with 4 inches of canola oil or melted shortening. Heat to 375°F (190°C).
  7. Scoop large spoonfuls of dough into the hot oil. Dipping the spoons in the hot oil before scooping the dough keeps the spoons from getting too sticky.
  8. Fry the oliebollen until golden brown, turning them to ensure even cooking.
  9. Remove the oliebollen, and place on paper towels on paper bags.
  10. Roll oliebollen in the cinnamon sugar mixture, and serve warm.
