These Dutch donut is crispy on the outside and soft and juicy on the inside. Fill it with currants and apple or just let them be au naturel. And don’t forget to sprinkle some icing sugar on them.
The first photo looks like I’m enjoying beer. I don’t. It’s one of the few drinks I don’t like at all. Never did either. But it’s great to use in Dutch donuts. Dutch donuts is a treat we eat at new years eve. You can buy them everywhere that day. But this year we, with help of my husband and childeren, made them ourselves.
Plain ones with no additions and Dutch donuts with raisins and apple.
We took them to my family and the bowl was almost empty at 12 o’clock.
We enjoyed playing games and even had (a little bit) fire works.
The reason for the fireworks was that my oldest and I were doing groceries for the Dutch donuts. He saw someone with fireworks and also wanted some. We agreed to keep it small.
So for the first time ever I entered a fireworks shop.
Because not everyone likes the hard noise of the fireworks exploding in your neighbourhood and I wanted to keep it as safe as possible, I thought I was smart and bought rockets instead of firework pots. My brother and husband laughed when they heard the story. They told me the rockets were unsafe as they don’t always go sky high (and indeed two didn’t).
So my lesson for next year: firework pots (I won’t forget that one).
So a bit late, but for everyone a very happy new year to all of you and your loved ones.
And now for the recipe, for the plain ones just keep the raisins and apple out.
