Where in the World? Holiday Baking – Koeksuster

Ready to Bake Copyright Shelagh Donnelly

Have you ever taken part in a cookie exchange party? How about (with no intended on the tech connotations for cookies) an e-cookie exchange? This year, I’ve launched an electronic version of the tradition, in which friends share one another’s company and the benefit of their tried and true recipes.

We’re sharing our recipes, not necessarily with friends and family from our own cities, but with friends and peers from locations around the globe.  I mentioned in a post the other day that I was almost ready to tie on an apron that serves as a memory of our most recent visit to Paris and, at reader Bette’s request, you’ll see a couple of those aprons right here.

Koeksuster, from South Africa

We have Anel Martin to thank for this recipe, which translates to “Cake Sister”. Have a look at Anel’s recipe by following links at the top of your screen, in this sequence …

There’s Still Time To Contribute

If you’re like me, and have been so busy with work and life that you’re just beginning to think about baking for the holidays, feel free to email me your recipes, or send them in by clicking on Contact Shelagh.
