- 500 gram all-purpose flour
- 2 dl lukewarm milk
- 100 gram butter on room temperature
- 14 gram instant yeast (2 packages)
- 25 gram sugar
- 10 gram salt
- 1 egg
- frying oil
- sugar for coating
Kitchen equipment needed
- Stand mixer or knead by hand
- 1 dough cutter
- 1 frying pan
- Kitchen towel
Making the dough — 1 hour 10 minutes
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 in smaller pieces. Then add butter and salt and knead again until a nice dough has formed. Put the dough under a cloth and let rise for about 40 minutes.
Beat the dough a little flat, until it becomes kind of pancake. Fold the pancake dough and let it rise for another 15 minutes (again, under a kitchen towel). Cut strips from the dough, about 30 centimeters and roll it around and make a knot or bow. Let the unbaked Nonnevotten rise for another 10 minutes.
Frying the Nonnevotten — 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. Can be enjoyed with lot’s of beer, as this is a Carnaval tradition!
