Yoghurt and Koeksisters

Yoghurt and koeksisters are a wonderful combination and a "Quick Cape Town Sweet". Add some preserved sour figs or other fruit and you are close to heaven :-). Koeksisters are a traditional South African 

dish and are prepared generally in 2 different ways. The Afrikaner style where the sweet dough pieces are twisted like a braid and the traditional Cape Malay style with some different ingredients where they remain straight and are covered with coconut flakes. I like both varieties. For this recipe I used the Afrikaner style koeksisters which you can buy here in many shops and even from a street trader along the road. Homemade ones are of course the preferable option but if you are short of time and you have a craving for a sweet treat this option will be just fine.
