- 2 cups cake flour
- 1 teaspoon salt
- 1 teaspoon sugar
- 10 g packet instant yeast
- 1 cup warm water
Sieve the flour into a large bowl.
Add the salt, sugar and instant yeast and stir to mix.
Slowly add enough of the water to bring the mixture together into a dough.
The dough should be soft but not sticky.
Knead the dough for a few minutes by hand.
Form the dough into a ball and place in a bowl.
Cover the dough with a damp cloth and leave in a warm place until doubled in size.
Knead the dough back into a ball and divided evenly into 10 or 12 pieces.
Place the roosterkoek pieces on a tray lined with baking paper and leave to rise again for a few minutes.
Cook the roosterkoek on a grid over medium heat coals, turning occasionally until cooked through.
Serve hot straight off the coals with butter, jam or syrup and cheese.
