This is of German descent. Make mixture before you go to bed and then first thing in the morninig, roll and deepfry. Makes a great breakfast food. It is like a German doughnut, light, takes a little work but very, very good. You can serve them for dessert, company coming, coffee get togethers. People will be coming back for more. They are excellent! If you like a challenge and have a little time, you'll love making them, besides your family will love them. My family likes them first thing in the morning.


3 eggs
1 t. b. soda
1 T. sugar
6 T. melted butter
1 c. buttermilk
1 t. salt
3 c. flour


Beat eggs 1 minute. Mix b. soda into milk, pour into beaten eggs, beat 1 minute. Sift dry ingredients and add to first mixture slowly. Add melted butter and mix well. Let stand 4 hours. Roll on floured board 1/4 " thick. Cut into strips 4x2", slit in middle. Pull dough through slit to make a little bow. Deep fry until golden brown. When done, take out and drain on rack with paper towels. After draining grebbles, I like to frost them in maple-flavored glaze.
Glaze: Powdered sugar (I usually start w/2 c. p.sugar), little milk, pinch salt, maple flavor, stir until smooth and thin enough to dip grebbles and drain on rack. Delicious!!
