From Ouma Annatjie’s Kitchen – Vetkoek

21 April 2020



1 Cup (250ml) Cake Flour

1tsp (5ml) Baking Powder

½ tsp (2.5ml) salt

¾ cup (180ml) Ice cold water

Sunflower oil for frying


  1. Add all the dry ingredients together. Add ice water to the ingredients until it has formed a soft dough.
  2. Warm about 3 mm of oil in a heavy duty pot and test the heat by dripping dough into the oil.
  3. Add spoonfuls of dough to the hot oil and cook it until light brown on the one side. Turn the vetkoek over and cook on the other side.
  4. Take it out and place on kitchen towel to get rid of excess oil.

Serve with apricot jam, cheese, golden syrup, honey or curried mince.

Pairs perfectly with our Laurens Campher Blended White.
