A sweet South African heritage delicacy - crisp pastry plaits are fried and dipped in an aromatic syrup!

Koeksisters are a sticky, crunchy donut sweet treat that is popular across South Africa. More specifically, they have a crunchy outside crust with a sticky, almost liquid syrup sensation in the centre.

The flavours come from cinnamon, ginger, and lemon, ingredients that are often included in the dough. Before the dough is fried it is braided, giving koeksisters its instantly recognisable appearance.

Once the dough is made and braided it is then fried in oil before being cooled in syrup. This infuses the syrup with the dough and gives koeksisters its truly indulgent taste.
