Normally a treat for the new year, we tried a Dutch Oliebollen which translates to ‘oil ball’ (and yes they were) They think it was the original doughnut, which evolved later to have a hole in the middle. The dough was a lot more chewy than a doughnut though. It was a winner eaten still warm sprinkled with powdered sugar (we didn’t like the raisin version as much)  The other traditional Dutch thing we tried was chocolate sprinkles on buttered toast. I hear the Dutch eat it all the time. Judging from the extensive sprinkle section at the grocery store, I’d say that’s pretty true.
