    Bokenpop aka Madeleine's Note:

    This is a traditional South African dessert. These very addictive treats are not for people who are conscious of weight or sugar intake! These freeze fantastically well and are thus a great lifesaver for when unexpected company arrive. Time to make does not include overnight chilling time.

      My husband is South African and told me about these and how much I'd love them...which I do! The only thing we do differently is add the juice of half a lemon and some fresh crushed ginger to the syrup...delicious!

      This recipe was delicious! I had to make a dish from Africa for my geography class so I decided that this was the perfect recipe! Anyways..I also agree that the dough was too sticky to handle so I suggest that you should knead the dough while adding 3/4 cup of flour (at seperate times). It worked out great for me. Thanks for the recipe!!
