  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 cup orange juice
  • 1/4 cup sugar
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1 teaspoon ground nutmeg
  • 2 eggs, lightly beaten
  • 1/2 cup vegetable oil for frying
  • For the Citrus Syrup:
  • 1/2 cup orange juice
  • 1/4 cup lemon juice
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 2 tablespoons butter


  1. In a medium bowl, combine the flour, orange juice, sugar, cinnamon, and nutmeg. Stir until everything is evenly mixed.
  2. Add the eggs and stir until everything is well combined. The mixture should be thick and sticky.
  3. Heat the oil in a deep fryer or a large pot. Once the oil is hot, take a spoonful of the koeksister mixture and carefully drop it into the oil. Fry the koeksisters for about 2 minutes, or until golden brown.
  4. Remove the koeksisters from the oil and place them on a plate lined with paper towels to absorb the excess oil.
  5. In a small saucepan, combine the ingredients for the citrus syrup. Bring to a boil over medium-high heat and stir until the sugar is dissolved.
  6. Reduce the heat to low and simmer for about 10 minutes, stirring occasionally, until the syrup has thickened.
  7. Remove the syrup from the heat and let cool slightly. Serve the koeksisters with the citrus syrup.
  8. Enjoy!
