Koeksisters
RECIPE BY BECKY KLAWANSKY

serves 4-6

Dough Ingredients:
2 cups cake flour

2 tablespoon baking powder
½ tsp salt
1 large egg
4 tbsp butter/margarine
½ cup of water
oil for frying
Syrup Ingredients:
1kg sugar

1 ½ cinnamon sticks
½ tsp ground ginger
1 ½ cups of water
juice of one lemon
Dough Method:
Sift the flour, baking powder and salt together.

Rub in the butter and mix until pliable.
Mix this with the egg and water (adding the water a little at a time).
Work the dough well. If the dough appears to be lumpy and sticky, continue to work the dough until it will ball up.
Let the dough rest at room temperature for about three hours (under an inverted mixing bowl).
Syrup Method:
Prepare the syrup a day before (it needs to be very cold).

Dissolve sugar in the water.
Add the spices and lemon juice to this and boil together. Leave the syrup cool in the fridge overnight.
To prepare the koeksisters:
Roll out the dough (thickness 5mm).

Cut the dough into strips of 6cm long, 2cm wide.
Cut each of these strips into three strips (not all the way through, leave the strips connected at the top).
Plat each strip, pinch together at the end of the strip.
Deep fry until golden brown.
Remove and drain quickly – dip the hot koeksisters in the cold syrup (that was stored in the fridge up to now).
The secret is to keep the syrup cold and the koeksisters hot, this way it will draw just the right amount of syrup.
You can keep the syrup cold by keeping the syrup bowl in another container filled with iced water
