DIRECTIONS

  • Dissolve the yeast cakes (or dry yeast) in lukewarm water, mix all the ingredients into a soft dough.
  • Let sit in a warm place until it rises to about double in size.
  • Use two greased tablespoons to form the ball shape. Drop carefully into deep hot (360º F) fat.
  • Fry until brown (turning if necessary- usually they turn by themselves). This should take 5 - 8 minutes.
  • Drain on paper towels for a moment.
  • Sprinkle heavily with powdered sugar and serve hot.
  • This batch serves a large crowd.
  • You can easily cut the recipe in half.
