      My Dutch hubby was chuffed to bits with this, as he hasn't had oliebolle since being in the UK. Have just finished cooking a batch (split in two - one traditional and one with added mixed spice) and have consumed a fair few myself. The rest will be left for New Year's Eve as is traditional. Many thanks

      This is the first yeast based oliebollen recipe I have ever personally made but I can say it is a good one. The only problem I came across was that the amount of milk was not enough so I had to add about another 100 ml or so to get a decent consistency. I've taken a few pics so you can see what my dough looked like. I didn't use the apple but I think it would be better for it. I use sunflower oil for oliebollen.
