I left South Africa nearly twenty years ago, armed with my mothers copy of this book. I am now on my fourth copy as we use it so much it breaks. We are very sad at the loss of Faldela Williams, but eternally grateful for her books.

I tried your Bolla recipe last night. I followed it to the T, FYI i am an excellent baker and nothing ever flops.. until now... :)
I just want to ask you...
Does your recipe really need 2 batches of 500ml flour(normal and self raising) with only 400ml milk?
It was so thick i had to add 3 times more milk and resulted in me throwing the batter away. I have since searched many Bolla recipes and none have so much flower in it
Please advise, fast starts tomorrow and would really like to make this for my in-laws
