The Ultimate Steinbach Summer Treat! Rebus & Roll Kuchen
Nothing says a Steinbach Summer quite like rebuse and roll kuchen! I remember mom and dad picking up a nice 30 pounder from Penner Foods. We didn’t have air conditioning to cool off so we relied on cool watermelon! And of course, with mom’s classic roll kuchen! They were big and fluffy without the slit in the center. (which is the way I prefer) Taunte Leina always insisted on cutting a slit in the center and always thought hers were better.
The cut in the center actually prevents the roll kuchen from puffy up. The result is a more dense dough fritter. My mom always deep fried them without the slit and they get nice and puffy with a much lighter texture.
Here's Taunte Leina's recipe. She substituted sour cream instead of heavy cream. Either way, they are delicious! This recipe was originally subitted to the Mennonite Treasury by Mrs. Peter Olfert in 1962. And the exact same Mennonite Treasury is still available today!

I need some advice. I’m 36, (well, actually 39 and a half) single and still hoping to find the right Menno man to marry but I’m not sure how to go about searching for the "Right Reimer" at this point in my life.
I’m an old fashioned Mennonite girl. The last relationship I had was when I was 22. I’ve met a few guys but all of them just want to bring me to meet the parents over faspa. I don't consider that actual dating. I want a little more out of a man. I’m not asking for a lot really. He just has to be willing to get married within a year, have a nice house (about 5000 sq. ft. preferably on a 10 acre lot in Jant Sied) ) and a full time job that pays at least $85,000.00 a year (after taxes) with 3 weeks holidays. Do you think that’s asking too much at my age?
BTW: All Jant Sied men know how to cook,..right?
Yours truly, still searching for the "Right Reimer"
Dear still searching for the Right Reimer
Would you like your man to be feeding you New Bothwell cheese curds in a meadow overlooking Jant Sied as well? Seriously though, wouldn’t every woman want a Reimer in Jant Sied who has financial security and is willing to make a commitment within a year. Here is some advice: Try to find a man who'll take you out to dinner instead of just having faspa at his folks. And try not to have your heart set on a Reimer. There are lots of great Menno men out there! So don't limit yourself to Jant Sied!
