Koeksisters are a South African pastry that’s deep-fried and then dipped in spiced sugar syrup. Somewhat reminiscent of doughnuts, koeksisters are made by twisting/ braiding either 2 or 3 small strips of dough, deep frying them and dipping them in a ginger and cinnamon spiced sugar syrup.

It is very important to keep the sugar syrup chilled. Once the sugar syrup warms up, the koeksisters will not become crunchy, but become softer which is more like the Cape Malay variety.

For the dough:
 2 cups cake flour
 10 ½ tsp baking powder
 1/2 tsp salt
 25 g butter , chilled and cut into pieces
 ¼ cup milk
 ¼ cup water
 1 tsp lemon juice
For the sugar syrup:
 2 cups sugar
 1 cup water
 2 ginger (3/4u201d each) fresh
 pinch salt
 1 tbsp lemon juice
