In small bowl mix a pinch of nutmeg and enough pepper to suit your taste.

Measure 2 teaspoons butter, 2 tablespoons flour.

In sauce pan melt the butter, then sprinkle in the flour, blend. With heat still in whisk in milk til smooth then add cider and broth and pepper nutmeg mix.
Raise heat and bring to boil stirring constantly then take off heat.

In 17 x 11 oven dish layer half the potatoes. Sprinkle half these cheese on first layer then layer the rest of the potatoes on top. Pour entire milk/cider mixture over the potatoes and cheese and bake for 25 - 30 minute.

At 30 min., sprinkle rest of cheese on top and bake another 20 min.

Let stand 15-20 min and serve.

We still have it here :D
I have a aunt that lives in the cape, and they do trucking for the farms.
The far,era give her some of their produce for free, so when we go doen to the cape now for the holidays, she spoils us with fresh, a-grade fruit and veg. She even makes us jams and bottled fruits.

In other words, Gabriel is in total love. He has an extreme sweet tooth like me!
You would love koeksusters. My daughters had some from a South African shop and absolutely loved them.

Here's how....


Ingredients – dough:
2 cups cake flour
2 tablespoon baking powder
½ tsp salt
1 large egg
4 tbsp butter/margarine
½ cup of water
oil for frying

Ingredients – syrup:
1kg sugar
1 ½ cinnamon sticks
½ tsp ground ginger
1 ½ cups of water
juice of one lemon

Method – dough:
Sift the flour, baking powder and salt together.
Rub in the butter and mix until pliable.
Mix this with the egg and water (adding the water a little at a time).
Work the dough well. If the dough appears to be lumpy and sticky, continue to work the dough until it will ball up.
Let the dough rest at room temperature for about three hours (under an inverted mixing bowl).
Method – syrup:
Prepare the syrup a day before (it needs to be very cold).
Dissolve sugar in the water.
Add the spices and lemon juice to this and boil together. Leave the syrup cool in the fridge overnight.
To prepare the koeksisters:
Roll out the dough (thickness 5mm).
Cut the dough into strips of 6cm long, 2cm wide.
Cut each of these strips into three strips (not all the way through, leave the strips connected at the top).
Plat each strip, pinch together at the end of the strip.
Deep fry until golden brown.
Remove and drain quickly – dip the hot koeksisters in the cold syrup (that was stored in the fridge up to now).
The secret is to keep the syrup cold and the koeksisters hot, this way it will draw just the right amount of syrup.
You can keep the syrup cold by keeping the syrup bowl in another container filled with iced water.

Thanks Hayles, it's nice to see what you guys are talking about. We don't have them here. There are shops opening up here that are British shops, they mostly have lots of different lollies and chocolates and that type of thing but last time I was in one they had some biscuits too. Next time I'll be sure to have a look.

Leelai,I thought you were in aus.
We have Marie biscuits
Been around for years as Hayley says there are the quintessential base for all cheese cakes etc???

I am in aus. Never seen them. I did think of a biscuit with a scalloped edge but they don't look like that. I'll checkout the biscuit aisle when I'm there on Tuesday. Thanks for that
