STICKY ONION AND CHEESE STOKBROOD
 

Makes 12

Hands-on time: 1 hour

Hands-off time: 40 minutes

 

INGREDIENTS
 

For the caramelised onions:

1 tbsp oil

2 medium onions, thinly sliced

1 tbsp granulated sugar

½ tsp garlic salt

1 bottle (275ml) Klipdrift & Cola

 

For the stokbrood:

2 cups self-raising flour

1 cup plain yoghurt

½ tsp salt, to season

1 cup grated cheddar cheese

 

Serving suggestion:
Braaied boerewors sausage

Mixed salad

 

METHOD

For the caramelised onions:
Heat the oil in a pot over medium heat. Add the onions and fry for 3-4 minutes until softened.
 

  1. Sir in the sugar, garlic salt and Klipdrift & Cola. Bring it up to a simmer and cook, uncovered, for 15-20 minutes until the liquid has reduced and the mixture has become jam-like. Set aside to cool for 20 minutes.

    For the stokbrood:

  2. Sieve the flour and gently fold in the yogurt and salt with a spatula until the mixture forms a dough.
     

  3. On a floured surface, knead the dough by hand for 6-8 minutes until smooth. If too sticky, add more flour, a little at a time, while kneading. *Chef’s Tip: If you have a stand mixer with a dough attachment, simply knead the dough in it for 3 minutes!
     

  4. Sprinkle the cooled caramelised onions and cheese over the dough and knead lightly to incorporate it all. *Chefs Tip: Dust your hands in flour to prevent dough from sticking to your hands.
     

  5. Divide the dough into 12 portions and use your hands to roll each into a ball.
     

  6. Roll each ball into a strip that is about 1cm thick and 20cm long.
     

  7. Twist each strip of dough around a long clean stick. *Chef’s Tip: use thick wooden skewers, that have been soaked in water for 30 minutes, if preferred.
     

  8. Braai over medium coals for 12-15 minutes, turning occasionally until golden brown. Pull the stokbrood off each stick. Serve with your favourite braaied boerewors and mixed salad and ENJOY!
