Two readers asked that I post my Roll Kuchen recipe. This is what I have written down in my book:
1.5 tsp salt
2 tsp baking powder
1/2 cup sour cream
1/2 cup milk
2 Tbsp melted butter
Enough flour to make a soft dough.
Roll thin and deep fry in fat.
Oh those Mennos know how to write recipes.
The above recipe made enough kuchens for Drew and me for a dinner with Watermelon. (With a few leftovers for breakfast with syrup.)
I doubled the recipe tonight because Max and Clint were home for supper too.
I'd guess I used about 4 cups of flour? Maybe? I really don't know. I just had Drew pick up the bag and dump a bunch on top of the other mixed up ingredients.
I divided the dough into three balls and rolled each ball out individually. Once it was flat and thin, I cut it into rectangles of about 2" x 4" in size. The I cut a slit in the middle of each rectangle and twisted one end through the hole. This part is not important and hard to describe so don't worry about it.
I don't think Max will eat these ever again. "Globs of dough, deep fried in fat. Ugh."
I fry those globs of dough in Crisco oil at burner heat level 6 /10 on my stove.
Yeah. It does sound gross.
I eat mine sprinkled with salt.
The boys sprinkle a dusting of icing sugar on them and then dip them into either corn syrup or maple syrup.
Yeah, I know.
It's a summer meal. We have it twice a year.
Don't you wish you were Mennonite?
