Soetkoekies – or Sugar cookies – This recipe in this image is one I’ve tasted and it is REALLY delicious. I’ve translated it the same time too.

On THIS LINK you can follow very easy steps by looking at pictures to make a very nice South African side dish to have with a BBQ! Read the comments of an American soldier who prepared it for his men in Bagdad! There is also a recipe on “how to make pap”.

Click HERE on this link for a recipe about delicious Bokkenvolle, something I’ve only discovered recently in South Africa!

Please click HERE to find the English recipe for South African rusks.

I was looking for a South African recipe called “Soetkoekies” on the web. I kind of know it by heart, as I baked it so many times during high school years…that was when I was seen as the “baker” in the family… When I searched the web this morning to find the REAL Soetkoekie-recipe…I came across several sites with “Soetkoekies”, but they are not the one that you get in my gran’s “Kook-en-Geniet”… (a South African recipe book …if translated…”Cook and Enjoy”…).. This “Kook en Geniet” was the alpha and omega of cooking/baking in many SA homes! And, till today, it’s my “Bible” about cooking/baking. Well, to come back to all these other recipes I’ve found..they are not the “Soetkoekies” baked by my grandma, but they are actually “Spicy cookies”… “Speserye Koekies”… the real Soetkoekie doesn’t have all those other spices as ingredients… with  more searching, I found a Word document with the recipe I was looking for! So, it is at the bottom of this post. One blog-reader has asked me for a milk tart recipe…so it is here, but in Afrikaans. Give me a day or so and I will translate it for English readers here… this is soooooooo delicious! You should try it!

Click HERE to see the milk tart recipe in English, as I’ve promised earlier today!

This “Kook en Geniet” (cover shown on image) is the modern edition of my grandma’s old “Kook en Geniet”.

Melktert

Hiervoor word gewoonlik skilferkors gebruik.

Skilferkors:
Bestanddele:
1 pond Meelblom
1 pond Botter
2 eetlepels Suurlemoensap
½ pint vloeistof bestaande uit – 1 geel van eier en Water
Metode:

Sif die meelblom, voeg sout by. Druk al die water uit die botter en deel in drie. Neem nou ‘n klein stukkie van een deel af en vrywe dit in die meelblom, maak nou aan met die ½ pint vloeistof en knie deeg baie goed. Die deeg moet geknie word totdat dit soos ‘n stuk rek is. Strooi nou meelblom op ‘n plank en rol die deeg baie dun uit. Neem nou een deel botter en sit dit in klein stukkies op die deeg, strooi effens meelblom oor en vou deeg toe en drie. Laat lê deeg nou ‘n rukkie. Neem nou die tweede deel botter en herhaal die proses en dan weer die derde deel botter ook op dieselfde manier. Rol nou die deeg uit en voer die nodige tertborde daarmee uit en gooi die volgende vulsel daarin:

Meltert vulsel:
Bestanddele:
6 koppies Melk
6 Eiers
2 koppies meelblom
2 onse Botter
1 ½ koppie Suiker
Sout na smaak

Metode:
Maak die meelblom aan met ‘n deel van die melk, sit die ander melk op die stoof om te kook, roer die aangemaakte meelblom in en kook goed deur,voeg die suiker en botter by. Klits eiers goed op,maar hou die wit van drie uit. Haal nou die vulsel van die stoof af en roer die eiers ook by,kook weer goed deur. Klits nou die wit van drie eiers styf en vou in die mengsel in,gooi dadelik in die uitgevoerde tertborde. Bak in ‘n baie warm oond. Pypkaneel en suiker word oorgestrooi sodra melktert koud is. Dit word ook net so bedien.

Let wel: Die vulsel moet altyd kokend warm in die uitgevoerde tertborde gegooi word. Brandewyn kan in plaas van suurlemoensap vir die vloeistof gebruik word.

CHICKEN A LA KING (serves 2)

Ingredients

2 Tbsp butter
2 Tbsp plain flour
1 cup milk
2 Tbsp sunflower oil
1 green (or red, or both) pepper, diced
1 amall onion, diced
1 cup quartered button mushrooms
1.5-2 cups cooked diced chicken
1 teaspoon salt
½ teaspoon black pepper

Method

Heat the oil in a large, shallow saucepan. Add the onion and, when it begins to soften, the red/green pepper. Allow everything to soften over medium heat but don’t caramelise the onions – add a bit more oil to the pan if things start to stick. Add the chicken and heat through, adding the mushrooms towards the end.

Melt the butter in a separate pot and when it is completely liquid, stir in the flour. Allow to cook for a minute or two, then whisk in the milk. Allow the sauce to thicken and season with salt and pepper, then pour over the chicken mixture and mix well. A splash of cream may also be added for richness. Serve at once on cooked rice or noodles.

History of Ouma Rusks.
Ouma Rusks (Afrikaans: Ouma Beskuit – literally “Ouma Rusks”; “Ouma” is a brand and proper noun meaning “Grandmother” ) are South Africa’s best-known brand of rusks – a traditional South African snack that is dipped in coffee or (less often) tea before being eaten.Owing to the South African diaspora it has become an iconic South African product that is consumed all over the world. It is usually marketed with the slogan Doop ‘n Ouma (in Afrikaans) or Dip ‘n Ouma (in South African English) (Dip a Ouma).According to the manufacturer, the history of Ouma Rusks began in the 1939 in the small Eastern Cape town of Molteno, where the effects of the Great Depression were bringing many people to their knees. During this time, a certain Ouma Greyvensteyn and her friends attended a church meeting where ways in which to help mission work were discussed. At the end of the meeting, each of the women were given a half-a-crown coin and told to multiply it using their talents, as in the Gospel. Ouma Greyvensteyn used this money to buy ingredients in order to make rusks using her family recipe. The rusks she baked proved to be extremely popular and orders continued to be placed for her rusks.Ouma Rusks are now owned by NOLA – one of South Africa’s leading food manufacturers and a division of Foodcorp. Currently, the rusks are available in single, 500 g and 1 kg packs in the following flavours:

:: Banana Bread::

This very traditional South African bread is best served as buttered slices. It is best to buy the bananas a few days in advance and wait until they are at their ripest, with the skin just starting to turn black.
Ingredients:
125 butter or margarine
375 ml sugar
3 eggs
5ml (1tsp) vanilla essence
250ml (1 cup) banana pulp (about 2 bananas, depending on size)
500ml (2 cups) flour
10ml (2 tsp) baking powder
1.25ml (1/4 tsp) baking soda
1.25ml (1/4 tsp) salt
25ml milk
A small 25cm cake tray (1.75L)

*The banana is best mashed in a food processor; or just cut into pieces and then mashed with a fork/potato masher.
Method:
1. Mix the butter and sugar together. If you have an electric beater, all the better.
2. Add the eggs one at a time, mixing well inbetween.
3. Add the vanilla and banana pulp, mixing well.
4. Add the dry ingredients with the milk and mix well till you have a smooth thick batter.
5. Pour into bread tin and bake for one hour at 180 degrees Celsius.

CONDENSED MILK RUSKS
(Makes 120 rusks)

The easy way out for those who can’t or won’t bake mosbolletjies.

1 tin (397 g) condensed milk
500 ml (2 cups) boiling water
250 g (250 ml/1 cup) butter
200 g (250 ml/1 cup) sugar
500 ml (2 cups) cold water
3 extra-large eggs, beaten
2 cakes of fresh yeast (25 g each), crumbled
1 packet (2,5 kg) cake flour
25 ml (2 T) salt
50 ml (4 T) aniseed (optional)

BAKING TINS
4 greased loaf tins

1. Mix condensed milk, boiling water, butter and sugar until butter has melted and sugar has dissolved. Add cold water, eggs, yeast and half the flour. Mix thoroughly to a smooth batter. Do not be too concerned if small pieces of yeast are still visible. Cover and leave in a warm place for 1-2 hours to allow the leavening to rise and become spongy.

2. Punch back the leavening and add salt, aniseed (if used) and enough of the remaining flour to make a soft dough. Sprinkle more flour, a little at a time, onto the dough board and knead well until the dough no longer sticks to the board. Knead for 15 minutes or until the dough is smooth and elastic. If another pair of hands is available, divide the dough into two and knead separately.

3. Complete dough by leaving it to prove, punching back, pinching into balls, packing tightly in greased baking tins and setting aside to rise again.

4. Bake the rusk loaf for 40-50 minutes. Cover with aluminium foil, shiny side up, as soon as the top becomes too brown. Turn out and leave to cool. Break into rusks and dry out.

Metode: 1. Meng bruismeel en sout. 2. Vryf botter of margarine in (tot dit fyn korreltjis is). 3. Klits suiker, eiers, olie en karringmelk in ‘n aparte houer. 4. Voeg nou die “nat” mengsel by die “droee” mengsel. 5. Meng baie deeglik en plaas in ‘n gesmeerde oondpan – krap dit gelyk met ‘n vurk. (Ek maak nie bolletjies nie, dit neem te veel tyd!) 6.

Dis gou om te maak en baie lekker!!!

You need:
brown sugar, sticky type..in South Africa you get “tricale” brown sugar
cream
bread dough
I found this bread recipe. I haven’t tried it myself.
5 cups flour
2 tablespoons yeast (or 2 x 7g pkts)
2 tablespoons sugar
1 teaspoon salt
2 cups warm-hot water
1/4 cup cooking oil
Put 4 cups of the flour, yeast, sugar and salt into large bowl.
Pour in hot water and oil and mix until combined- it will be sticky.
Add the remaining flour in increments until dough is no longer sticky.
Knead for about 5 minutes until dough is elastic and smooth.
Place dough back into bowl and cover with a damp tea towel and let it rise until double its size- about 1/2 hour.
Now for the Bokkenvolle!

Roll small pieces of dough – like golf balls. Put in oiled oven dish or pan.
Cover the rolls with brown sugar. Be generous with the sugar! Don’t worry if there’s some at the bottom of the dish or pan. Pour cream in the dish, about 1 cm thick in the bottom, at least.
Bake in hot oven by about 180 deg C.
It takes longer than the plain bread rolls due to the cream that gets soaked up by the bread rolls.

Serve and enjoy!

On this link – on my blog – you can read how to make “pap” in the microwave …very easy…

Click on this PDF-link here for Potjiekos Recipes.The link will open in a new window.
Potjie kos
General Method
The meat usually comes first. Add a dash of cooking oil in the pot and when it is hot add the meat. Add sliced onions and stir the meat to seal in the flavoir. Cook the meat until nearly done. Add vegetables in layers according to cooking times, carrots at the bottom followed by sweet potatoes, potatoes, pumpkin, mushroom etc. Arrange the vegetables in layers around the sides forming a hollow for the rice. Marinade or liquid is now added to about 2 cm under the top layer of vegetables.
Replace the lid and do not stir after this. Keep the pot simmering until done. Before serving, stir through once to ensure the meat and veggies at the bottom will be dished up and enjoy. Basically, everyone makes it their way…so you go and have a go and see what works best for you!

I’ve just found this site……www.biltongmakers.com. I’ve copied  here some of their recipes…and on this next link on my blog, you will find about 7-9 other Potjie Kos recipes from their site.

As I promised some of my chess players….and all other people reading here…this dish is a must if you’re having a BBQ. In South Africa we like to have it as a side dish, some people won’t make it, but instead having just Pap…which is well-known to the “Southerners” in America as “porridge”. (They also call it “grits” ). In South Africa we also call it “porridge”…in English…but this dish is known for the Afrikaans word… “Pap dis”…which means… “porridge dish”….[it’s an oven dish] or Pap tert [pap tart].

Some people will sometimes have porridge for breakfast….depends on taste and what you like for breakfast. Sometimes you get people who don’t like Pap, then you will have bread rolls for them, usually people from the Cape! They don’t know what is delicious and good for them…wonder if they know the difference between a Springbok and a Kudu…! hahaha…only joking! Ok, we had friends Saturday night for a BBQ and I took photos step-by-step of this dish, specially to post them here for my poor chess players – some are now very much into Saffa-goodies and foods and all the nice/delicous stuff they can order from  South African shops all over the world. One chess player was so confused after telling him what to do, well, now he’s got the pictures too…Our friends told me to tell everyone here that they all had a second helping and it was really delicious…–[btw..it is the truth…]

For the Pap Dish…you need…..

………Cream…single cream….as double cream is a bit too thick and you need more “runny” cream….

…….one onion……more if you like more….

………chopped………

………..mushrooms……sliced………..

………bacon……diced……….my own “ingredient”

………frankfurther……..depends on taste…to serve 4 people it’s enough to add one per person…this is also my own “ingredient”…as it wasn’t in the original recipe….

………grated cheese……..

Pap…porridge… make it a little bit runny…if it’s thick, you’re going to have trouble to “smear” it in your dish….recipe at the bottom of this post…

…..fry….mushrooms….I like to fry everything separately, it’s up to you, you can mix it straight away from the start and fry it all together….

fry bacon……………

fry…….frankfurthers……….

mix them all together…onions fried too, of course……..

Take a heat-resistant glass dish….cover it first with a thin layer of oil, butter or margarine, whatever you like…and start with a thin layer of pap (porridge)

…..add a layer of the fried mixture……

……. at this stage, I like to add a thin layer of grated cheese and cream, it’s just a bit more creamy if you do it…

………cover with a layer of pap (porridge)…..

………completely……….

……..now add your cheese and cream and your dish is ready for the oven!

………..and….Voila! This is what you get after about 30 min (keep checking it…not in a too hot oven…about 180 deg C….)

How to make “Pap”…
from……
wikihow.com/Make-Pap-in-the-Microwave
Its only 10 minutes, so pay attention! Things You’ll Need

A microwave
Coarse Maize Meal (Mieliemeel)
a kettle of freshly boiled water
a large microwavable bowl with lid
a fork – preferably a large two tine fork

Measure out a cup of maize meal into the microwave bowl (1 cup should make enough for 3-4 people).
Depending on where you are from and how you like your pap add a pinch of salt, more than a pinch or none at all!
Add just enough of the freshly boiled water to wet all the maize meal and work it in with the fork.
Set microwave on “High” and the timer for 10 minutes.
Put the lid on your bowl and pop it in the microwave.
Microwave for about a minute and then remove again.
Thoroughly stir in a little bit more water and return to the microwave.
Repeat this process (Remove, add a little water and stir, microwave again) 3 or 4 more times during cooking time at regular intervals – find a rhythm that works for you! Tips
A glass (Pyrex) bowl is preferable to a plastic microwave bowl
If you have a big enough bowl you can use more than a cup of maize meal, but you might have a better end result if you rather make it in batches – should you require more pap.
Likewise you can use the same method to make smaller amounts – just use a third or quarter cup to make a single serving
for Putu (Krummel) pap, add a little less water and use the fork make to the pap crumbly – believe me, the microwave can make perfect krummelpap!
In the same way, adding more water will give you a denser (stywe) pap or if you add too much water (with finer maize meal) you will have slap pap.
Making pap in the microwave may seem strange at first, but you will master it in no time and no one will be able to tell the difference! Warnings
Use oven mitts as the bowl will get really hot after the first couple of minutes. A cloud of super hot steam will escape every time you open to stir so take the lid off carefully and away from your face
DO NOT forget about it after the first minute! If you neglect to add water and stir an incredibly dense layer of burnt maize will form and the bowl you were using will be a write off.


Maize meal…which you can buy or order from any South African shop anywhere in the world.


……and this is a replacement in Tesco……shops in the UK….and costs about £1.40
