This word…Bokkenvolle …sounded almost like a swear word to me when I heard it the first time…but…this is the for these rolls! I have a recipe…so ..keep looking if you want to know more…I tried to find out where the name comes from..without any success! I was quite surprised how delicious they are!
In Dutch...bokken…is like a goat…and.. volle..must be like “full”…but I can’t see any relation between the two words in this context. Iin Afrikaans “goat” is a “bok”…that is just a plain goat…NOT a Springbok! haha…and “vol” is “full”…so, why this name “Bokkenvolle”…NO idea! It was the first time ever I heard of it or have it with food during August whilst on holiday. Any South African reading here…tell me if you know more! Klik on this next link for the recipe!
