Creamy Amasi sponge cake recipe

Amasi (in Zulu and Xhosa), maas (in Afrikaans), or mafi (in Sesotho), is a fermented milk product that is similar to cottage cheese or plain yogurt. It is a popular snack in South Africa and Lesotho. You can actually find amasi in many grocery stores in South Africa. The rest of the recipe is simple to put together. You can either serve it with some ice cream or whipped cream. Add some fruit with the whipped cream for some sweetness and colour.
