  • Tant Sannie se Melktert pudding in a glass liqueur
  • mosbolletjie loaf or raisin bread
  • 4 T Woolworths vanilla-flavoured custard powder
  • 500 ml full-cream milk
  • 3 T sugar
  • ground cinnamon
  • 100 g melted butter


1. Make the custard according to the package instructions for a thick custard: Place the custard powder in a bowl and mix with a little bit of milk to form a smooth paste. Add the rest of the milk, as well as the sugar, mixed with a pinch of cinnamon, and stir well.

2. Heat the custard mixture in a saucepan over medium heat, then turn the heat to low and keep stirring until the custard thickens. Set aside to cool down.

3. Once cooled, add 4 tablespoons of Tant Sannie se Melktert to the custard and stir through to combine.

4. Brush the insides of a jaffle pan with the melted butter. Place a slice of mosbolletjie loaf or raisin bread in each ‘cup’ of the pan. Place a fat scoop of custard in the middle, close the pan and toast on the oven – or over the braai! – until the bread is golden brown.

5. Repeat the process until the custard and the bread is finished, then dust the jaffles with cinnamon sugar and eat up! Serve warm.
