Luxurious Saffron-Infused Koeksisters Recipe

Indulge in this luxurious and decadent Koeksisters recipe, bursting with sweet, saffron-infused flavor! This sweet treat is a unique combination of a classic South African pastry with an exotic twist. The saffron-soaked syrup locks in the moisture as the koeksisters are baked to perfection, creating a crunchy, yet chewy delight that is sure to please.


  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 2 tablespoons sugar
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • 2 tablespoons butter, melted
  • ½ cup milk
  • 1 teaspoon ground saffron
  • 1 cup water
  • 2 tablespoons honey
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • Oil for frying


  1. In a large bowl, mix together the flour, sugar, baking powder, and salt. Add the melted butter and milk and stir until a soft dough forms.
  2. Turn the dough out onto a lightly floured surface and knead for 5 minutes. Roll the dough out to ¼-inch thickness and cut into 2-inch strips.
  3. In a medium saucepan, combine the saffron, water, honey, and vanilla extract. Bring to a simmer and cook for 10 minutes, stirring occasionally.
  4. Heat a large skillet over medium heat and add enough oil to cover the bottom of the pan. Once the oil is hot, add the strips of dough and fry for 3-4 minutes per side until golden brown.
  5. Using a slotted spoon, transfer the koeksisters to a large bowl and pour the saffron syrup over top. Gently stir to coat the koeksisters evenly.
  6. Transfer the koeksisters to a parchment-lined baking sheet and bake in a preheated 350°F oven for 10 minutes. Serve warm.
  7. Enjoy!
