Koeksisters are made from a simple dough consisting of flour, sugar, butter or margarine, and milk. The dough is mixed and then braided into distinctive shapes, usually twisted or plaited, before being deep-fried to a golden brown perfection. Once fried, they are immediately immersed in a syrup made from sugar, water, and sometimes a hint of lemon juice or cinnamon, creating a sticky, sweet coating. South African Koeksisters are a pastry deeply intertwined with the country's culture and history. Their sweet, syrupy goodness brings people together, and their roots in South Africa's colonial past make them an important part of the nation's culinary heritage. While not a health food by any means, Koeksisters are a popular treat enjoyed on special occasions.
