Traditional Oliebollen | Dutch Doughnuts

Oliebollen are a fantastic Dutch New Year’s Eve treat. These Dutch doughnuts are made from a thick yeast dough peppered with dried fruits and apples which is fried till perfectly golden.

Can you guess what I will be having for breakfast every day this holiday week? Oh yeah some oliebollen! Oliebollen is a Dutch doughnuts (or donut I never know) that is the quintessential Dutch treat for New Year’s Eve. Apparently over 80% of the Dutch population consumes oliebollen on between Dec 26th/Jan 06th. With this recipe I wish you my readers a very Tasty, Happy and Healthy New Year 2017!

Dutch Foodie Exchange

Quebec is famous for July 1 st moves. Many apartment leases end on June 30th and everybody moves July 1st. So in that spirit the Foodie Exchange has moved, granted a bit before July 1st.

The Foodie Exchange, a place where foodies from around the planet can exchange their local food specialties as a care package with other foodies, has now its very own independent domain:

***please UPDATE your links and badges!***

Now the dust is still settling, not all the boxes are emptied and not all the decorations are up. But the site is ready for some action!

And if you do then you can receive some great food from other countries like I just did with Marthe of Culinairy Delights. Marthe is in the Netherlands. Here is what I got….

  • coarse honey mustard
  • miniature stroopwafels, molasses waffle cookies, so good!
  • Moroccan mint tea
  • chocolate liqueur for coffee
  • coffee cake bars called Ontbijkoek
  • a light rose beer

Thank you so much Marthe! Want to do a similar package with someone? Then join the Foodie Exchange!
