It is eaten with a nice cold Watermelon on a hot day.
Yesterday almost got hot and so out came the whipping cream and the eggs.
I feel like there should be a disclaimer with this recipe for its obvious lack of nutritional value.
No worries. Just don't eat it every day and you'll be fine.
Something else that we learned last summer is that these delicious rich deep fried rolled fritters are delicious with strawberries and whipped cream. Oh the guilt never ends.
The ingredient list is very simple and I'm happy to say that it does have farm fresh eggs included in the recipe so, . . . .well, there are plenty of nutrients in those . . .so, its all good.
1 cup whipping cream
1 tsp. salt
3/4 tsp. baking powder
3 cups of flour
Mix these ingredients together and knead into a ball.
Wrap the dough up and refrigerate it for a few hours.
Letting it sit makes it so much easier to roll out.
Rolling it thin, makes a crisper roll kuchen and leaving it a bit thicker makes for a softer roll kuchen. No doubt you'll be making them a few times in summer, so you can experiment on how you prefer them.
Because the dough is rich, its very easy to work with. No sticking problems.
Cut the dough into about 3 -4 long strips and then cut across to make rectangular shapes.
Cut 2 slits in the middle of each so that they don't become one big balloon in the hot fat.
Heat some fat up in a large pot. I use Canola Oil. When the fat has little bubbles coming to the surface, it is likely hot enough, but put in a small piece of dough to test it. I know there are tricks for this but for the life of me I can't think of one of them. Ladies, help me out here.
Also, there are as many different recipes for this as there are Mennonite women. I'd love to know what your recipe ingredients and amounts are. Please let us know your tricks.
I'd love to improve on my attempts.
Eat as many as satisfies. I have no idea how many I ate today but somewhere along the line, I got out the Rogers golden syrup and started to dip the roll kuchen in that . .(for dessert).
So, tell me, how do you eat your roll kuchen. (rolled cookies) Is that the right translation? Tell me if its not . . .please so that I can correct that sooner rather than later.
