Beetroot Cake   |   African Desserts

(Aussie what? Never heard of it) Grated beetroot and chocolate baked into a rich purple-spotted dark brown cake.

A koeksister (or koe'sister) derives from the Dutch word koekje, which translates to "cookie". It is a South African syrup-coated doughnut in a twisted or braided shape (like a plait). It is prepared by deep-frying plaited dough rolls in oil, then dipping the fried dough into cold sugar syrup. Koeksisters are very sticky and sweet and taste like honey.

Ingredients: 3 Cups Flour (Cake or All purpose) Baking Powder Salt Butter Milk Cooking Oil for deep frying Syrup: 5 Cups Sugar 2 Cups Water Lemon Juice Vanilla Essence
