My husband simply loves Melkkos.
It is a truly South African dish, eaten either as a warm and filling breakfast or as a dessert.
This morning my husband decided to make it for us as a special treat.

The main ingredient is milk, about 1 litre which you need to bring to the boil.

In the meantime add 1.5 cups flour, 1.5 tablespoon butter, pinch of salt and two tablespoons of sugar into a big bowl. Now rub the mixture together with your hands until you have breadcrumb like consistency.

Add the flour mixture a little bit at a time to the boiling milk and stir, stir, stir.

Once you've added everything you need to let it simmer for about 5 minutes, stirring continuously.

The consistency will be similar to that of porridge.

In a little bowl mix 2 tablespoons sugar with 1 tablespoon ground cinnamon. Add the cinnamon sugar to the Melkkos and mix well.

Serve and enjoy!
