Something Sweet Challenge: Traditional

Something Sweet Challenge: Traditional

The challenge this week is to bake something traditional to the country of your birth. Please leave a comment for me to tell me if you have done something. Babotie is considered the national dish of South Africa. It is probably more common in the Western Cape that anywhere else, but it totally sums up the Malay influence on our eating habits. Another typical recipe would be for koeksisters. These are a sweet treat to go with coffee. We also have melk tert (milk tart) to serve as a dessert or for afternoon tea. Traditional dishes vary from country to country and I would love to know what you grew up with. Is this the same as where you live now? Have you moved and taken on a new national dish that you serve at your table.

  1. Can we twist it a bit and do ‘from the country of our forefathers’? I can then do something English, don’t fancy making melktert again and I don’t like koeksisters … those are the only SA ones I can think of …

I would ♥ to hear from you (comments will only be visible once I reply)
