Vetkoek, is a traditional South African fried dough bread. The vetkoek forms part of South African culture. It is similar to the Caribbean Johnny cake, the Dutch oliebol, and the Mexican sopaipillas. Another similar South African recipe is Amagwinya, the Zulu name for this fried dough ball

This is really interesting. Great idea with the heart-shaped one. Hugs!
Thanks for stopping by and I hope you will enjoy the Vetkoek when you try it.
Tried them today. Really not close in comparison to vetkoek. Like a softish biscuit. Not the best substitute.
Hi Karen, Thanks for your feedback. I am not a banter and as you will notice previous comments also said it to be different. Sorry about that, but I only share here what we receive from our FB members and what they also enjoy. Taste differs, and they liked it, sorry that it did not turn out as you may have hoped.
I love vetkoek, I haven’t had them in ages. Thanks for sharing your recipe with us! 😀
Glad you love Vetkoek. Hope you will enjoy this one as well.
Hi where do you get physallium husks?
Ruth, you will most likely get it in the specialty food section or a specialty food shop. As I am in Canada I will unfortunately not be able to give you more direction. Hope you find it.
They sell them at food lovers market, Dis-Chem
Thank you for answering – Ruth Not sure where you are in the world, but Psyllium is a form of fiber made from the husks of the Plantago ovata plant’s seeds. Try any health shop or specialty shop

Hi there. This is my recipe and has been poached and submitted by someone else. I realize I cannot control what is on the Internet the image attached to this recipe is of a regular wheat flour vetkoek and not the Banting version which is obviously misleading. Please feel free to check out the recipe on my blog and use the correct image instead.
Hi Jeanette – Sorry did not mean any harm or poaching or your recipe. Please provide me with your site info then I will update appropriately.
Sorry, I wasn’t accusing you of poaching, its just an ongoing issue, but I suppose once it’s out there in cyberspace, what can I do? Was my blog details not on my earlier post? I was signed into Wordpress…Anyway, here is the link.
Thank you. I will review and update tonight. On my way to work. Thanks. Cook & Enjoy
