In South Africa, there is a sweet pastry known as a “koeksister” (literally translated as “cake sister” and pronounced “cook-sister”). It is like sweet deep fried bread and is often enjoyed during Easter. This Oolong Koeksisters is a delightful twist to this tasty hot bread.
The well known Chinese dessert, “Tong Yuan” (Soup Balls), is often served in Chinese new year to symbolise union. It can be made with kids, and the oolong addition gives you the welcome break from the doughyness of this traditional dessert.
