    Ian, just for you.

    KOEKSISTERS
    SOUTH AFRICA



    Koeksisters are a traditional South African sweet dessert.
    Although, nowadays, you probably wouldn't find Koeksisters served at a formal sit down dinner. They have moved into the position of a mainstream munch, eaten as a sweet snack, at braaivleis, sporting events, cocktail parties in fact you'll find koeksisters popping up almost everywhere
    The koeksister syrup:
    · 4 cups sugar
    · 1 cup water
    · 1 tsp cream of tartar
    · ½ tsp tartaric acid
    · 1 tsp vanilla essence or 1 tsp grated orange rind or 1 tsp ground cinnamon or 1/3 tsp ground ginger


    Koeksisters, eaten as a dessert, or just anytime you fancy something sweet.

    Add the dry ingredients to the water and bring the mixture to the boil.
    Allow it to simmer for 10 minutes or until syrupy.
    Set the syrup aside to cool.
    It is advisable to make the syrup first and to leave it in the fridge overnight.

    The koeksister batter:
    · 1 egg
    · 2 cups flour
    · 6 tbsp milk
    · 6 tbsp margarine or butter
    · 2 tsp baking powder
    · 1 tsp salt
    Sift the flour, baking powder and salt into a mixing bowl.
    Cut or rub the margarine or butter into the dry ingredients.
    Beat an egg thoroughly and add it to the milk. Add this to the flour mixture, taking care to handle as little as possible.

    Refrigerate the dough for at least one hour.
    Roll out the dough to a thickness of ¼ inch.
    Cut into strips that are approximately 31/2 inches long and 1 inch wide.
    Cut each strip into three lengthways, leaving one side uncut, and plait the pieces, pressing the cut ends together firmly.

    Pre-heat vegetable oil in a deep pan and remove half of the syrup from the fridge.

    Deep-fry the koeksisters in the oil until golden brown.
    Drain them for a few seconds on absorbent paper.

    Dip the koeksisters into the cold syrup, for a few seconds, whilst they are still hot.
    This will seal the syrup outside and leave the inside of the koeksister dry in contrast.

    The syrup will gradually become hot, so when you have done about half of the koeksisters take the remaining syrup from the fridge and use this for the balance of the koeksisters.

    Koeksisters are a favorite of all South Africans who have a sweet tooth.

    People sell them outside shopping malls to earn an income.
    You will find them at all fund raising functions where food is sold.

    If you like sweet things you will certainly enjoy these.
    But be careful, they're so nice that it's easy to over indulge and start feeling a little queasy, rather save some koeksisters for tomorrow.

    Lewies, as far as I know there are koesisters and koeksusters.

    Koesisters are made by the Malay in the Cape and koeksusters were made by the dutch.

    Well I am just very particular how my koeksisters must be. The crunchiness must be just right, the syrup quantity must be just right and the amount of ginger must not be too much.

    Koeksister is die Afrikaanse term daarvoor. Koeksusters is straatpraat (slang) vir daai tannies wat nie van mans hou nie.

    I called it a" suster" purposely so as to stir the imagination.

    Henri, I was just wondering, would that be 31÷2 = 15,5 inches or 3 x 0,5 = 1,5 inches?
