An unusual baking ingredient--sauerkraut--lends a satisfying crunch to these savory doughnuts.
INGREDIENTS (for 1 servings):
- 1 teaspoon baking powder
- 1 cup sifted all-purpose flour
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
- 1/8 teaspoon ground mace
- 2 eggs
- 1/2 cup milk
- 2 tablespoons butter, melted
- 2 cups sauerkraut, drained
- 4 tablespoons vegetable oil
Sift together baking powder, flour, salt, and mace.
In a medium-size mixing bowl, combine eggs, milk, and melted butter or margarine. Stir the flour mixture into the egg mixture until smooth. Fold sauerkraut into the dough.
Heat 4 tablespoons of vegetable oil in a large skillet. Drop the sauerkraut dough by teaspoonful into the hot oil; fry until the balls are browned on all sides, approximately 2 or 3 minutes.
