Japie se Gunsteling


Japie se Gunsteling recipe I dedicate to my dad. I know how much he loves Japie Se Gunsteling dessert. When I went to visit I made bobotie as the main course with Japie Se Gunsteling as dessert.

It is a baked orange pudding and is really great, also for me who isn't so keen on fruit-type desserts this is something to re-consider to eat. And I actually enjoyed it myself. Japie Se Gunsteling is a very popular Afrikaans dessert and goes back a few generations. Use the best fresh oranges for this Japie Se Gunsteling recipe and you will taste the difference. The orange zest add some taste as well.

I also used to make this lovely dessert in winter time as it is a baked pudding. Add your homemade vanilla ice-cream or cream to it. Or a dollop of cream. With custard or just as it is. The choice is yours. I used to dish it in a lovely bowl and present it in a simple way. Especially the older men from the Hugenote Gedenkschool Trustee Board enjoyed when I pulled out some older Afrikaans menu's.

You can let it bake until it is light brown on top (this depends on your oven as welll. As I have a gas oven it tend to bake longer than a electrical oven.

So for all those foreigners overseas, if you are married to a South - African spouse, you must certainly make this lovely Japie Se Gunsteling although I doubt your name is Japie too!
