The Technique

Portzelky

Portzelky are a Mennonite cookie or fritter recipe with origins from Germany reserved specifically for New Year’s Day celebrations. They are traditionally prepared with raisins & deep fried then dusted in powdered sugar much like a beignet. The technique of hydrating the raisins before adding them to the dough will aide in keeping them softer after the cooking process. Although just a cup is used in this formula, the recipe will hold up to 2 cups if more are desired. Learn how to make a traditional New Year’s Day specialty right in your very own kitchen.

makes about 3 dozen

1 cup raisins
11/4 cups warm water
1 {1/4-ounce} package active dry yeast
3 1/2 cups bread flour
1 tsp koster salt
1 1/4 cups room temperature buttermilk
2 eggs
2 Tbsp softened butter
2 Tbsp fresh orange juice
1/2 tsp vanilla bean paste
Vegetable oil
 1 cup powdered sugar
1 Tbsp ground cinnamon

Microwave the raisins & 1 cup water in a glass bowl on High power 1 minute. Let stand 1 hour. Drain. Stir together the remaining 1/4 cup water & the yeast. Let stand 5 minutes or until foamy. Whisk together the flour & the salt & in the bowl of a stand mixer. Add the yeast mixture, the buttermilk, the eggs, the butter, the orange juice & the vanilla bean paste. Mix on Low speed 1 minute with a dough hook. Stop the mixer & scrape down the bowl sides using a rubber spatula. Increase the speed to Medium speed & mix 2 minutes or just until the batter is smooth. Add the raisins & blend an additional 30 seconds or until evenly distributed throughout the batter. Transfer the batter to a large lightly greased bowl. This will aide in portioning it more easily during the frying procedure. Spray the surface of the batter with cooking spray & cover the bowl with plastic wrap. Let rise 1 hour. The dough will not double in volume.

Pour the oil to a depth of 1 1/2 inches in a Dutch oven & heat to 365 degrees. Attach a candy thermometer to the side of the pot to monitor the temperature. Portion the batter using a standard-size cookie scoop & release into the hot oil. Work with approximately 6 portions of batter at a time. Fry, in batches, 1 1/2 to 2 minutes on each side or until golden brown. Drain on a wire rack over paper towels. Combine the powdered sugar & cinnamon. Dust liberally over the warm portzelky.

How To Make Portzelky

The batter will be sticky so a cookie scoop works well to portion it into the hot oil. Monitor the temperature by attaching a candy thermometer to the side of the Dutch oven. For the best results, allow the temperature to rise again between batches. If it gets too hot, add a little more oil from the bottle to lower it & adjust the dial on the stove top. Many of the fritters will flip on their own during the frying process or you may use along wooden pick to complete the task.
