In the post I aso recount some of the customs of the Cape Malays during Ramadhan, as well as the influences on our cooking.

Our flapjacks are more similar to buttermilk pancakes usually served for breakfast, although more delicate and light in texture. My mother loved these Flapjacks, and although we mostly reserved it for Ramadhan, there were occasions when she would make it for unexpected guests.

It is very versatile and can be eaten as sweet (with jam or caramel, banana and whipped fresh cream) or savory (with butter and grated cheese).
