(First put on this tune: Immigration Song by Led Zeppelin).


  • 1 cup self-raising flour
  • 1 free-range egg
  • 200 ml milk
  • 3 ml salt
  • 750 ml oil

Cooking instructions

  • In a medium bowl, combine the flour, egg, salt and milk and beat well until it forms a smooth, thick batter.
  • Heat the oil in a pot over medium heat and deep-fry small dollops of vetkoek dough for three to four minutes or until golden brown and cooked through. (Two teaspoons of dough will be ample to create neat little vetkoek balls).
  • Place on paper towel to drain excess oil. Serve the vetkoek with jam and cheese or curried mince.
