An oliebol is a traditional Dutch and Belgian food. They are called oliebollen (literally: oil spheres) in the Netherlands, while in Belgium they are also called smoutebollen (literally: lard balls although the real "smout" is of rapeseed oil) and croustillons (loosely: crispies) in French.

In English they are more commonly known as Dutch Doughnuts or Dutchies. In the distant region of Istria, now split into the countries of Italy, Croatia and Slovenia, a variation of this dish is called fritole, fritule and blinci. In Serbia they are called krofne. Also,in Ghana,West Africa, they are known locally as bofrot or bofflot.

I had them on New Year's Eve in Amsterdam years ago when visiting a former exchange student from my high school. Quite good, but how can you lose with deep-fried dough and sugar? Have not heard of them since, until now. Thanks.

The Housing Trap
You're being set up to spend your life paying off a debt you don't need to take on, for a house that costs far more than it should. The conspirators are all around you, smiling to lure you in, carefully choosing their words and watching your reactions as they push your buttons, anxiously waiting for the moment when you sign the papers that will trap you and guarantee their payoff. Don't be just another victim of the housing market. Use this book to defend your freedom and defeat their schemes. You can win the game, but first you have to learn how to play it.
