Rollkuchen a.k.a. Deep-Fried Goodness

So I was at camp this last week.

No, not as a camper…but as camp nurse.

With camping comes unhealthy food (why is it that camping and junk food come hand in hand??) and sometimes its ok to just give in and indulge.

Key word is SOMETIMES!

So pretty much all week I bypassed the cookies, nutella, mac n cheese, candy, ice cream sandwiches, and every single cavity-causing food you can think of.

I had eyed up the week’s menu in advance and tried portion control until Wednesday lunch arrived!

Ohhhh buddy…what an amazing lunch it was!


So I don’t expect you to pronounce that correctly but I do expect you to make them, buy a large watermelon and serve it for a Sunday lunch some time.

Better yet, make this for lunch, invite your friend who pretends she’s Martha Stewart, and she will finally be the one who is jealous of you! Oh, and when she asks you for the recipe, make sure you “accidentally” write down the wrong measurements.

Anyway, this lunch was the kids’ favorite meal that week! There were rollkuchen eating contests! I ate 8 which is probably equal to 2500 calories. Ok, so maybe not but I don’t care because it was sooooooo goooooooood!!!

Here’s the recipe!


  • 2 eggs
  • 3/4 cup milk
  • Add to:
  • 6 tbsp butter, melted
  • 3 cups flour
  • 2 tsp salt
  • 1 tsp baking soda


  1. Beat eggs well
  2. Put eggs into a 1 cup measuring cup and fill with milk
  3. Add to remaining ingredients and mix to combine.
  4. Roll out very thin and cut into strips.
  5. Cut again so that pieces are approximately 1 inch long by 3 inches wide.
  6. Cut a slit in the middle and pull one end through to knot it.
  7. Fry four to six at a time, in deep hot fat until golden brown.
Let cool a little and then enjoy!!! No, this is not diet food!!!
