Today I had to bake..... This special little balls are called here: Nonnefäscht...
I don't know if I really would like to translate this..... hmm...
Nonnen are called nuns in engl. but Fä the noise people make when they have to much gases in the the name is not really an appetizer.... :-)
But this little balls are delicious.
Here is my recipe:
100 g sugar
350 g flour
50 g butter
4 eggs
3 table spoon milk
250 g fresh cheese (Quark)
(don't know if that exist in USA, here is the explanation I found on Wikipedia:)

1 pkg baking-powder (for 500g flour)

Mix all the ingredients. Heat 1-2 l oil.
With a teaspoon form little balls and deep-fry them for 3-4 minutes.

Haha, the name is very funny. Gassy nuns. Mmm, doesn't sound so appetizing but they look DELICIOUS. Except for the addition of the Quark cheese they look something like Beignets from Cafe Du Monde in New Orleans.

Thanks for sharing!

I've copied this certainly tasty recipe, as I liked the name of this speciality :-) ! "Fäscht" means in my language (a Swiss dialect) "celebration" and together with "Nonne" the celebration of nuns ;-) !! Is this a typical recipe which people bake for this time of the year?
Thank you for sharing.
