On  my Afrikaans link HERE I was asked to translate the buttermilk recipe. Well, here it goes! This recipe is from  a friend of mine and it really tastes almost like the real buttermilk rusks you buy in the shops! [even better, if you ask me!] Try and enjoy!

You need:
3x500g self raising flour

1/2 t salt
3/4 of 500g margarine
3 eggs
500 ml buttermilk
2 cups of sugar
1t vanilla
1t food colour – yellow
250 ml coconut [dried coconut]

Method:
1. Pre-heat the oven to 180 deg C.
2. Rub butter in flour and salt.
3. Wisk the buttermilk, sugar and eggs.
4. Add the coconut, vanilla and food colour.
5. Mix all till well blended.
6. If dough is too stiff, add a little bit of milk.
7. Coat bread pans with oil. Put dough in pans till about 1/4 of the base is covered, press the dough till it reaches all corners.
8. Bake for 20 min.
9. Cut in thick slices/fingers and dry the slices in the oven. If you dry it in the oven, your oven shouldn’t be too hot…a cool oven – about 100 deg C, spread the rusks on a baking tray and remember to turn the “slices” so it dries all sides. Usually you would dry them overnight with the oven door wedged open a crack to dry out completely. Keep the rusks in an airtight tin.

For the Milk tart in my  previous post, you need puff pastry for the base. You can look at the video and use the ingredients I’ve given,  but you can follow the video’s ingredients too as it is basically the same.

for the base you need:

1pd Flour
1 pd butter
2 table spoons lemon juice
1/2 pint water-and-1 yoke-mixture.
a pinch of salt
Follow the video for the method.
When done with your puff pastry, you put it in your heat resistant oven dish/bowl. Bake in the oven for about 15 minutes before for  you add the filling!

 

Milk tart filling
1 cup = 250 ml

6 cups of milk
6 eggs
2 cups of maizena (cornflour)
2 ounces of butter
1   1/2 cup of sugar
salt to taste

Mix the cornflour with a little bit of milk and heat the rest of the milk.
When the milk is cooking, stir the cornflour mixture in the cooked milk and add the sugar and butter. Beat the eggs, but keep the white of 3 eggs separately – for later. Add the eggs to the mixture and stir thoroughly. Whip the 3 whites till stiff and fold it into the mixture. Fill the base/crust of the tarts with the filling. Bake in a hot oven (190 deg C) for about 20 minutes.  A mixture of sugar and cinnamon can be sprinkled on the filling when it’s cooled down. Serve cold.


Van Cruella — ‘n blog-leser– die volgende:
Die melktertresep is ietwat te styf na my smaak. Ek het die resep gehalveer en ipv ‘n kors klaargekoopte beskuitjies probeer. Dit werk uitstekend. My gehalveerde resep is as volg:
3 k melk
3 eiers, geskei
Half koppie meelblom
1 E blotter
Half koppie suiker
Sout na smaak
Pypkaneel.

Plaas 2 koppies melk plus die suiker en botter in ‘n kastrol en bring tot kookpunt.
Intussen meng jy die res vd melk, meelblom en eiergele tot glad (verkieslik met ‘n klitser).
Sodra die melk kook, verwyder van die stoofplaat en meng die eiermengsel in.
Sodra gemeng plaas terug op stoofplaat en roer tot gaar (plus minus vir 5 minute)
Verwyder van stoofplaat en vou geklopte eierwitte in.
Skep in bak waarvan die bodem gevoer is met beskuitjies.
Strooi gekrummelde beskuitjies en pypkaneel oor.
Laat afkoel en geniet dit!

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:

Condensed Milk
Aniseed
Buttermilk

:: 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.

Hierdie volgende reseppie het ek van ‘n blog-leser gekry, sien haar boodskap in die kommentaar-boks hier. Ek plaas haar resep hier. Geniet dit!

Hier is ‘n Karringmelk beskuit resep – ‘n wenner!! (Dit was op die karringmelk houer).
1 kg Bruismeel; 5ml sout; 200ml suiker; 250g botter of magarien; 500ml karringmelk; 2 eiers; 25ml olie.
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. Bak ongeveer 45min by 180 grade Celsius – so ligbruin bo-op. 7. Haal uit oond, laat effens afkoel, dop uit pan en breek in stukkies. 8. Droog uit in oond. (Toe die kinders klein was het hulle dit net so sag geeet!)
Dis gou om te maak en baie lekker!!!

24th September is National BQQ day in South Africa!
These are “golden rules” when having a BBQ on the 24th!

1.  Die braaier mag braai waarvan hy hou en hoe hy daarvan hou.

2. Dit is onwettig om in ’n ander persoon se braai te krap of in te meng. Dit sluit in die rondstamp en omkrap van kole, toetsvingers in marinades of die onregmatige draai van roosters wanneer die braaier nie kyk nie.
3. ’n Verbruiker van braaivleis het die reg om seker te wees van ’n skoon rooster in die braaiproses. Enige reste van dooie diere, klonte van marinades en gefossileerde as moet asseblief verwyder word voordat die braaiproses begin.
4.Dit is toelaatbaar om hoender vooraf te kook, aangesien die organiseerders van nasionale braaidag voorstanders daarvan is dat elke individu die reg het om teen salmonella beskerm te word.
5. Vis en vleis moet asseblief op aparte roosters gebraai word, behalwe in gevalle waar die rooster sorgvuldig tussen die braaiprosesse gewas word.
6. Braaiers wat beskermende handskoene dra, moet liefs nie getart, geteister of gespot word nie.
7. Gasbraai is slegs vir woonstelbewoners.
Om te braai, is om te lewe.
