    1. Ingredients
    2. 500 gr. all purpose flour ( whole wheat works well too)
    3. 1 cup lukewarm milk
    4. 25 gr. fresh yeast
    5. 1/4 cup raisins
    6. 1 cup orange juice
    7. 1 tbsp orange flavored liqueur

    9. oil for deep frying
    10. confectioners sugar
    11. 1 egg, lightly beaten
  1. Method

    Soak raisins with the orange juice about 10 minutes.

    Dissolve the yeast in the lukewarm milk.

    In a large mixing bowl combine the flour and the salt. Add the yeast with the milk. Add the egg and mix with a wooden spoon. Batter should be verry sticky. Dry the raisins and add them to the batter with 1 tbsp orange flavored liqueur. Mix well. Cover and let rest about 30 minutes.

    Heat the oil in a large saucepan on high medium heat. Grease well your hands with oil. Take a small piece from the dough with the size of a little apricot. Roll it in a ball and with your finger make a hole in the center. Fry no more than 3 donuts at a time on the both sides. Place on the serving dish covered with a cooking paper and sprinkle with confectioners sugar. Serve warm.
