Roosterkoek are nothing strange if you grew up in South-Africa. I have very fond memories from my childhood remembering my mother making the dough and my father doing the lovely braai with the roosterkoek and chicken, loin chops and boerewors with all the side dishes on a Saturday evening or Sunday braai. This is a lovely recipe, very trustworthy believe me, you will soon become addicted to roosterkoek! If you don't want apricot jam or cheese on top, try my tomato and chili jam recipe, the two goes together very well! If you have left overs, it is lovely to eat at breakfast with a fried egg on the next morning or a quick lunch.
