DIRECTIONS

  • Measure water into bread machine pan.
  • Add dry ingredients.
  • Add yeast.
  • Set machine on 'dough setting' and start.
  • When done (after 1 1/2 hrs) remove and divide into 10 balls on lightly floured surface. Flatten slightly.
  • Let rise for 1/2 hour in warm place.
  • Warm oil in pan - about 1 inch deep - on medium heat setting (not hot!).
  • Fry vetkoeks about 5 minutes a side (turn over when golden). Pack them quite close together in the pan: it helps with rising.
  • They should be the color of doughnuts when ready.
  • Drain on kitchen towels.
  • As soon as you can bear to touch them, slice open and spread with butter and your favorite preserve.
  • Enjoy.
  • (cooking time is bread machine cycle).
