Serves 8



1½ cups (375g) White Star Quick Super Maize Meal 

2 tbsp butter

1½ cups grated cheddar cheese

500g boerewors

¾ cup chakalaka

Salt and pepper, to season


Serving suggestion:

Parsley, chopped



  1. Preheat the oven to 180°C and line a bread loaf tin with baking paper that is slightly hanging over the sides.

  2. Cut the boerewors into strips that are the same length as the loaf tin. Insert a skewer through the length of each piece to keep it straight while frying.

  3. Add a tablespoon or two of oil to a non-stick frying pan and bring to heat. Fry the boerewors pieces until each piece is cooked on both sides. Set aside. 

  4. Bring a large pot with 2 cups of water and a pinch of salt to the boil. Mix another 1½ cups of water with the 1½ cups of White Star Quick Maize Meal to form a paste. Gradually add the maize meal paste to the boiling water and whisk well before covering the pot with a lid. Bring to the boil and cook on medium heat for 10 minutes. *Chef’s Tip: Keep an eye on it to ensure that the pap does not burn.

  5. Remove the pot from the heat and add the butter and cheese to the maize meal mixture and stir to combine.

  6. Add ⅓ of the cheesy maize meal mixture to the bottom of the loaf tin and top the maize meal layer with the chakalaka.

  7. Top the chakalaka layer with another ⅓ of pap and top that layer with the cooked boerewors before covering it with the reserved pap

  8. Put the loaf in the oven and bake for 40-45 minutes until the top is slightly golden.

  9. Remove from the oven and allow the loaf to cool in the tin for 5-10 minutes before placing on a breadboard and carefully flipping it over. Scatter the top with chopped parsley before cutting the loaf into slices. Serve and ENJOY!
