  6. GR8 recipe that is almost identical to my 92 y/o mother’s. She grew up near Sombor, Yugoslavia (now Serbia). Her recipe called for Apricot Jam and where butter is called for, she told me that Duck Fat could be used instead. Also, of the 2 eggs used, 1 egg is the yoke only. Only those 3 things I see different. Over the years I have since personally added the zest of ½ of a Lemon and ½ tsp. Vanilla Extract. She would always make these Hungarian Doughnuts on days when she made a Ham and Bean Soup. She would double the recipe and in the hour before dinner, she would start by making the donuts. After half of the dough was gone, she would then cut rectangular shapes about the size of a smaller cell phone. After cutting about a 2” slit down the middle lengthwise, she would place into the oil. When all were done, it was dinner time. Those last rectangular shaped “donuts” without the jam were broken in two and eaten (dunked) with the soup. And for dessert or an evening of snacking, you got it-pure enjoyment!

  7. This looks so good, but I'm wondering what the interior texture is. My mother's always had lots of airy pockets and wasn't cake-like.
