These small, sweet yeasted pastries from the Netherlands are known as Nonnevotten. They're a delicious doughnut-like treat from Limburg, in the south of the Netherlands, usually handed out during carnival parades. Recipe for 6 people.
I was making this recipe, because it’s Carnaval and I’m not in the Netherlands and I miss these very much. You mentioned mixing in the yeast mixture and “the rest of the milk”. Did I have to mix the yeast with only half of the milk?

Hi Danielle, oh yes these are the ones I miss from carnaval too (I don't live in the Netherlands anymore). Sorry for my late reply, hope they ended up great anyway! As described in the first sentence, you only add a little lukewarm milk to the yeast. So not even half, just a little bit. That mixture will become foamy and that means the yeast has been activated. Have a great evening, love Véronique
