Here's Nina from My Easy Cooking with something amazing, just for you. Take it away!
Last year some time, I posted this recipe on Food24 and got such a huge response from it that I have chosen this as my guest post recipe here on polkadotcupcake cooks.
Yesterday, when I did a cooking demo for a group of ladies, I chose this easy batter recipe to show just how versatile it is. We have teased my mom so many times over the years about this, but when she serves this "slap degie" on stewed fruit served with game, or uses it to make a hearty beef stew (that’s even more delicious!), we are all quiet and all you hear around the table are sighs of satisfaction and bliss. This "slap degie” (runny batter) changes the ordinary to the sublime and supper into a plate of comfort food.I implore you to try this, once you've made it, try to add herbs or spices or even cheeses to it. Let me know what you think!!
Slap Degie (runny dough)
250 ml self-raising flour
half a cup milk
half a cup oil
- Break the egg in a cup and fill to halfway with milk and then to the top with oil.
- Pour into a mixing bowl.
- Add the flour and salt and mix. If the batter is too stiff, add a little more milk. That is it!
These are just some of the comments I received in response to this recipe
KEN DIE DEGIE... OUMA HET DIT ALTYD OOR DIE WILDSPASTEI GEGOOI...
EN KWEPER JELLIE...
Brilliant recipe Nina, I've got a similar one from my Granny too. Works for just about anything and everything
This looks so delicious Nina! I've also read about the slap degie in my "Kook en geniet" but I've never tried it and it is so easy!
Thinking about it... I suppose one could even use polenta instead of flour in this, eh? Would be lovely on top of a chili con carne type of stew!
(Erm... would using polenta change the amounts or the cooking time, do you think, chef?)-- and one would then probably have to add maybe half a teaspoon of baking powder or so, hey?
Thanks so much for sharing this!! What a brilliant way to use up leftovers - just make a "stew" and cover with this topping! I will probably even try this tonight!!
