DISSOLVE the yeast in a little lukewarm milk and wait for about 5 minutes. MIX flour, rest of the milk, sugar, egg and yeast mixture and knead to a smooth dough.
CUT the butter into smaller pieces. Then add butter and salt and knead again until a nice dough has formed. Put the dough under a cloth and let it rise for about 40 minutes.
Beat the dough a little flat, until it becomes kind of a pancake. Fold the pancake dough once and let it rise for another 15 minutes (again, under a kitchen towel).
Cut strips from the dough, about 30 centimetres and roll it around and make a knot or bow. Let the unbaked Nonnevotten rise for another 10 minutes.
Deep fry the Nonnevotten in (frying) oil of 180 degrees Celsius. Sprinkle the fried Nonnevotten generously with sugar, do this immediately or else the sugar won't stick anymore.
These can be enjoyed with lot's of beer, as this is a Carnaval tradition!
