Whole Wheat Vetkoek


2 cups flour

2 cups whole-wheat flour

2tsp instant dry yeast

2tsp brown sugar

1tsp salt

2tbsp Crispa Gold oil

2- 2½ cups warm

Crispa Gold Oil for deep frying


Combine all the dry ingredients in a big bowl.

Add the Crispa Gold oil and then water bit by bit until you get the consistency of a soft bread dough. The mixture must still be quite sticky.

Place the dough on a floured surface and gently knead for 5 minutes. You may need to add a little more flour over the top of the dough to prevent it sticking to your fingers.

Place the dough in a clean bowl and cover with a cloth and set aside in a warm spot until the dough is double in size.

Softly flatten the mixture on a lightly floured board and cut out circles with a cookie cutter or a glass.

Depending on the size cutter you use, you should get approximately 18 vetkoek out of the dough.

Allow the dough to rest for another 15 minutes.

Deep frying Crispa Gold a few vetkoek at a time until golden brown over a medium/low heat. The vetkoek should turn themselves in the oil, if not, turn manually.
