Mennonite Rollkuchen Recipe

When I was young, my mom made a lot of mennonite recipes. In fact, she had a cook book called “The Mennonite Treasury of Recipes” which has since been handed down to me.

One of my favorite recipes from the mennonite cookbook were the summer cookies known as Rollkuchen. Rollkuchen (roll cookies) is almost like an odd shaped doughnut. They are primarily served in summer with icing sugar and watermelon.

A few years ago, a couple of friends came over to make rollkuchen in my kitchen. Here are a few pics from our day along with my mom’s Rollkuchen recipe. I hope you enjoy them!


  • 4 cups of flour
  • 2 tsp. baking powder
  • 1 cup milk
  • 1 tsp. salt 
  • 1 cup of sour cream
  • 4 eggs
  • Cooking oil

Serve with: Watermelon, syrup or icing sugar (confectioner’s sugar)


  1. Mix the flour, salt and baking powder in a large bowl.
  2. Add the remaining ingredients and mix well. You’ll need to get your hands in there.
  3. Flour the counter top and knead the dough on it’s surface a few times until it is smooth–not sticky. 
  4. Roll out the dough and cut it into 2 x 4 inch strips.

5. Put a slit into the center of each one to prevent them from puffing up too much in the center. 

6. Heat oil in a pot or deep fryer (I use about 1/2 a bottle in a pot)

7. Add the dough, turning to brown both sides.

8. Remove when they are golden brown and place on paper towel. 

Again, most people eat them with watermelon and some like to serve them with syrup. What I’ve started doing is mixing a little icing sugar (mix confectioners sugar with a bit of water) and serving it on the side. This way my guests can drizzle a little on top if they like.
