Some days of October, 30 of November, and not to fall asleep because December happens soon and not it can formulate plans with hours of anticipation to receive the new year that begins. A proposal: to give the welcome to the 2009 to the best Dutch style.

The Oliebollen - literal translation: oil balls are delicious sweet pancitos, well simple to prepare, and that will leave enchanted the companions at table. Their origins go back to the tradition of the Germanic tribes, who each solstice of winter (exactly, between the 26 of December and the 6 of January) celebrated Yule.

During these celebrations, the God Perchta embarks course to the sky of the winter, and the buns fried in oil without a doubt were of aid to protect themselves of the Nordic cold. Surrounded by I haul of history and mythology, the Oliebollen invites to us to amuse to us preparing the mass with smallest of the family, and to enjoy their characteristic flavor.

Next, the prescription:



  • 500 gr. of wheat flour
  • 1 leavening envelope
  • ½ liter of milk
  • 1 pinch of salt
  • 2 eggs
  • A chorrito of vanilla essence
  • 250 gr. of grapes you pass and/or apple small pieces, to election
  • 300 ml of maize or sunflower oil
  • Impalpable sugar

Difficulty: average.


  • To put the grapes you happen in lukewarm water soaking during approximately one hour.
  • To place the flour in a bowl and to add milk, the essence of vanilla, the leavening, eggs and the salt.
  • To mix until a homogenous mass forms and to add the grapes or the pieces of apple.
  • To cover the bowl with paper transparent film.
  • To let rest to room temperature during approximately 45 minutes, so that the mass increases.
  • To warm up the oil in a casserole.
  • When the mass has reached the double of its original size, to open the bowl with well-taken care of of which too much does not move.
  • With a spoon to serve ice cream or two spoons (always shrunk in hot oil) to retire small balls of mass and to place inside the casserole.
  • To gild of both sides, to retire and to place in a source on several layers of kitchen paper, so that it absorbs the oil surplus.
  • To serve in a tray and to dust with impalpable sugar to pleasure.

Note: they are possible at the same time to be placed several Oilebollen, always taking care of of that do not stick to each other, and not forgetting which were first!

And welcome 2009!
