Mosbolletjies

Here is La Motte’s time-treasured recipe for proper South African Mosbolletjies. Using grape must (mos) as the raising agent, making mosbolletjies from scratch is truly a labor of love; albeit one that yields a great reward, especially when enjoyed steaming hot from the oven and spread with a liberal amount of salted farm butter.

Step 1
To make the starter, stir the Cake Flour (2 cups) into the Grapes (2 cups) , creating a lump-free paste.
Step 2
Transfer the paste into a glass or plastic container and cover with clingfilm. Leave the starter in a warm spot to rise. This takes about 3 to 4 hours.
Step 3
To make the loaf, combine the Cake Flour (18 cups) , Granulated Sugar (2 1/2 cups) , Salt (1/2 Tbsp) , and Aniseeds (1 Tbsp) together. Add the must starter and enough warm water or milk to create a firm dough.
Step 4
Once the dough is ready, place it into a large bowl and cover with clingfilm. Leave the bowl in a warm spot to rise for 4 to 5 hours or overnight.
Step 5
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F (180 degrees C).
Step 6
Once risen, gently knock down the dough without kneading it. Grease two to three loaf pans with some of the Salted Butter (1 cup) . With floured hands, form small balls and arrange them in the loaf pans.
Step 7
In a small bowl, whisk together Eggs (2) with a teaspoon of sugar and a little Milk (as needed) . Brush the top of the loaves with the egg mixture and leave the loaves to rise for a few minutes.
Step 8
Bake the mosbolletjies in the oven for 1 hour exactly.
Step 9
Leave the loaves to cool slightly before turning out and enjoying with lashings of farm butter.
