Ingredients
  Compressed yeast/1 1/2 teaspoons active dry yeast 1⁄2 Ounce (1/2 Cake)
  Sugar 2 Tablespoon
  Warm milk 2⁄3 Cup (10.67 tbs)
  Sifted all purpose flour 2⁄3 Cup (10.67 tbs)
  Egg 1 , beaten
  Margarine 2 Tablespoon
  Melted fat 2 Cup (32 tbs) (For Deep Frying)
  Confectioners sugar 4 Tablespoon (Adjust Quantity As Needed)
  Melted butter 2 Tablespoon (For Serving)
  Damson/Other jam 1⁄4 Cup (4 tbs) (For Serving)
  Cinnamon sugar 2 Tablespoon (For Serving)
  Crumbled gingerbread 1⁄4 Cup (4 tbs) (For Serving)
  Grated cheese 1⁄4 Cup (4 tbs) (For Serving)
Directions

Stir the yeast and sugar into the lukewarm milk until well mixed and leave for 5-10 minutes until frothy.
Sift the flour into a bowl, stir in the yeast liquid, the beaten egg and the melted fat, mix to a dough and knead until it pulls away cleanly from the sides of the bowl.
Place the dough in an oiled plastic bag and leave in a warm place to rise until doubled in size.
Turn the risen dough onto a lightly floured surface, punch down and knead until smooth.
Roll out to a rectangle about 9 inches by 7 1/2 inches and cut it into 1 1/2-inch squares (by cutting 5 strips one way and then cutting across 5 times the other way).
Place the dough squares on an oiled baking sheet and cover with oiled plastic wrap.
Leave in a warm place to rise until almost doubled in size.
Meanwhile heat the fat in a deep fat fryer to 360°F.
Fry the Dalken a few at a time until crisp and golden.
Drain on paper towels and then dust thickly with the sugar.
