Latgalian recipes: "Jobiki" with cream sauce

This recipe is taken from "Īsakūd Latgolā", a program on Latvian Television exploring the culinary delights of the Latgale region in Latvia.

Ingredients:

15g fresh yeast

250 ml warm milk

2 cups all-purpose flour

sunflower oil

sugar

salt

 

For the sauce:

250 ml cream

250 ml milk

sugar to taste

 

Directions:

1. In a bowl, mix the yeast with a dash of sugar and salt.

2. Pour in the milk and start slowly adding the flour. Knead the dough until it becomes smooth and elastic.

3. Add the oil and knead a little more until the dough is no longer sticky.

4. Leave the dough to rise in a warm place.

5. Preheat the oven to 200 degrees Celsius. Shape the dough into small balls and bake until golden and risen.

6. Mix milk, cream and sugar in a pan and bring to a boil. Add the "jobiki" and turn off the heat to allow them to absorb some of the sauce.
