This recipe was taken from a Facebook account, Africa…. this is why I live here. One of their albums called Recipes for disaster has dozens of South African recipes. Worth a look if you like to try new recipes.

It is an easy recipe and I can vouch for the biscuits taste.

Give it a try and let us know if you enjoyed it.
