Tasty Tuesday - Souskluitjies

This week in our Tasty Tuesday slot we share a recipe for spiced dumplings in sauce, a dessert known in Afrikaans as 'souskluitjies'.


SOUSKLUITJIES (dumplings in sauce)

To buy

  • 120 g cake flour
  • 10 ml baking powder
  • 2 ml salt
  • 15 g butter
  • 1 egg
  • 125 ml milk
  • butter and cinnamon sugar to serve with


To make

  • Sift the dry indredients together and mix in the butter with fingers till it resembles breadcrumbs.
  • Mix egg and milk and add to above. Boil water (must be about 3 cm deep) with a pinch of salt in a casserole with a lid.
  • Use a teaspoon dipped in boiling water to put spoonfulls of the dough into the boiling water.
  • Cover with tight fitting lid and cook slowly for 10 minutes (please don't peek, as this will cause the dumplings to "fall down" and become rubbery)
  • Remove from heat, pour into a serving bowl and put dots of butter on top. Sprinkle a lot of cinnamon sugar over and serve with vanilla custard.
