Souskluitjies is a must if you love ‘boerekos’!
These Souskluitjies are best when they are freshly made and still piping hot, but they can be reheated the next day and should still hold their nostalgic magic! (Old fashioned dumplings with cinnamon and sugar)
1½ Cup Flour
1 Teaspoon Baking Powder
Pinch of Salt
¾ Cup Butter
2 Table Spoons Sugar
½ Teaspoon Salt
1 Stick Cinnamon
Sugar and Cinnamon mixed in bowl to sprinkle
½ Cup melted butter
Sift the Flour, baking powder and salt together.
With your fingers rub in the butter into the flour until it has like a crumbs
Beat the Eggs and sugar until light and fluffy.
Mix the beaten eggs to the flour mixture. Make sure to use a spoon and mix lightly.
Add water in a saucepan about 5 cm deep, salt and cinnamon, bring to boil.
Spoon teaspoons of your dough into the boiling water. You can do it all at one time. Simmer on low heat for 10 minutes, cover, taking care that the mixture does not boil over. Just regulate the temperature so that it is simmering very slowly, without peeping too often!
Remove the dumplings with a slotted spoon and arrange in a serving dish. Sprinkle generously with cinnamon sugar (you will need more than you think, because the batter is not sweetened) and drizzle with the butter. Let it stand for 5 minutes to give the sugar some time to melt, then serve at once.
