    I tried this recipe, but om my, maybe my lack of experience in the kitchen, when I rolled out the dough it became a sticky mess and any attempt to safe it by dusting the surface with flour just did not help. I ended up just using my fingers to get the dough into the pan and it was far too thick after it cooked. Perhaps I should try again !!

    Nice of you to bring this recipe to the Round Table, I am so glad you did for this is a wonderful recipe. I can see that South Africa has a lot to offer me if I ever get to travel there. High Five

    This is my absolute favourite. I only make it twice a year though as I haven't got cold hands and must get up early to make them. Thank goodness for fridges as you need to keep the dough cold.! Thanx for sharing your recipe with us

    I would love to make this, but I'm not sure how to convert this recipe. I wish we would totally convert to the metric system

    Maybe I should have said that this is traditional in the Afrikaans community. The recipe had it's origin in South Africa though. Hoop jy gaan dit geniet!! No, you see, I have to do everything else, so, I leave the bbq for him to do. I will make die pap en sous and everything else with a smile. I have to let him feel he is still the man in the house!!!

    traditional? poor me I have never heard of them, my parents were english, and the first time I was invited to a braai - BBQ I was 14, ja ja, shame hey, never mind I have made up for it in a big way and won't let anyone near the BBQ now and do it all as my husband watches lol
    but this weekend I am going to bake some traditional Hertzoggies baaie dankie
