African  Vetkoek

Cooking African Vetkoek

Baskets full of Vetkoek


Pronounced 'Fet Cook'

"......vetkoek - a delightful, typically South African snack. Vetkoek can be served at any time of day. My mother used to make it on Sunday nights as a special family treat. Served hot with butter and smooth apricot jam (with a cup of strong black coffee) is the way I prefer it, but it is superb with syrup, fig preserve, honey, cheese, thinly sliced biltong or savoury mince. The history of these deep fried dough balls goes back many years, to the days of the Voortrekkers who found it much quicker and easier to make than bread"..... Henrie Geyser

Vetkoek can be made with OSO-ONO Fried Dessert Dough.
