Making Melkkos...South Africa

The girls and I made melkkos when we were studying South Africa. Melkkos is made from milk, flour, and cinnamon. It's easy to make and the girls thought it was yummy. Here is the recipe. The girls loved mashing the butter into the flour.
We simmered it with a cinnamon stick.
And it's done!


  1. That looks really yummy, thanks for the link to the recipe, I think we'll be making this soon.

  2. Somehow I would never have thought that a recipe like that would actually taste good - but now I want to try it!

  3. (South Africans in Australia)
    We make melkkos all the time on cooler days but as a filling afternoon snack after school! I use sago in it.
    Will try your recipe as I always follow the one I have.

  4. South Aficans in Australia
    We love melkkos always.
    Filling snack and lovely on cold days anytime even dinner!
    I will certainly try your recipe!
    I use sago in my recipe.
