Missing Dutch food ..... Oliebollen

Home made olie-bollen in Thailand
After that I saw a photo of "oliebollen" (from a friend living in the Philippines) last new-year I wanted to make them myself again here in Thailand. A few year back I did that also at home in Pattaya with another Dutch friend. Now you might be wondering ... oliebollen??
Oliebollen are an typically Dutch treat eaten around new-year (December). In that time of the year you will find food stall on the street selling different types of "oliebollen". You could call it an "Dutch Doughnut without the hole".

For me eating olliebollen brings back very good memories of my life in Holland with my family and friends. And it also tastes good! All you need to make them is for sale here, even in upcountry Khon Kaen. And although they look good and they did taste good, they were not the way they should be. Because the yeast did not do his work good enough, the batter did not rise enough to make the oliebollen real fluffy. See How to make Oliebollen
