V is for vetkoek! That’s right…after SuzelleDIY shared her tips and tricks for making your own reusable disinfectant wipes, South Africa’s favourite DIY expert went on to demonstrate how to make a SA favourite… vetkoek! Yes, SuzelleDIY is back with another DIY web episode for her new ‘Suzellphabet’ series.
Joining Suzelle in the studio is Willyballs — who is considered to be a local personality and food aficionado.
“Whuddup fam? Today I have my very special guest Willyballs in the studio to help me help you make a firm, family, fun favourite… that’s right guys, vetkoek!” Suzelle said along with the video. “From sweet to savoury, Willyballs and I will show you such a quick and simple way to make this delicious local favourite, straight from our hearts to your eyeballs. There’s it!”
To make Suzelle’s vetkoek, you will need:
Add your instant yeast, a pinch of your sugar and about half of your warm water into a large mixing bowl. Give it a swirl and wait 5 minutes. Pop in the flour, sugar, salt and oil, and give it a mix while you add the water little bit by little bit. Knead the dough to form a ball and cover it with a dish cloth. Leave it to rise for 45 minutes. Once the dough has risen, roll the dough into little balls. To fry the vetkoek, you will you need about 4 cm of oil, remember to do the oil test with a small piece of dough to make sure it’s ready! Pop in the dough, and carefully flip when it turns a golden brown colour.
Fans of Suzelle have a total of 26 episodes to look forward to. Some of Suzelle’s favourite episodes include I is for Iron Hacks (who knew you could make toasted cheese using a clothing iron?) “Oh gosh! You are in for some big surprises and creative projects of your heart’s desire,” Suzelle said when introducing the project for the first time. From making various times out of jeans to making your very own foot-operated hand sanitizer station by using everyday things, Suzelle is still going at it with her series. And luckily, it’s not over yet! There are still 4 episodes left – and we wonder what DIY project SuzelleDIY has in store next?
