Happy New Year everyone!
Made a Dutch classic New Year´s treat, deep fried dough balls, filled with raisins and apple. They´re called “oliebollen”. So far I had used my starter only for recipes using water; this was the first recipe with milk, butter and egg. The dough started out really slow and I was getting a bit worried. After 6 hours I decided to put the dough in the microwave with a bowl of boiling water beside it. That got it going alright. All in all it took about 10 hours of fermentation for it to double in size.
Although I made them myself, I have to say that these are the most tasty oliebollen I´ve ever eaten Good structure, very tender, nice crispy bite.
Wishing you all that is good for 2018!
