Vetkoek is the Afrikaans name for which literally means ‘fat cake’ and is as South African as it gets!

In reality though, Vetkoek is nothing more than dough that you deep fry and it should be light and soft on the inside and crispy on the outside. It can be served with delicious cooked mince or turned into a sweet bite of apricot jam and cheddar cheese.  It can also be served anytime of the day.  Breakfast is usually the sweet version and the mince filling is reserved for the rest of the day.
