  • Weigh the flour out and set aside.
  • Next measure (or weigh for great accuracy) the water in a measuring jug. Mix the chakalaka into the water. Have all other ingredients at hand.
  • Starting always with the liquid, add the ingredients into the tin in the order set out in the recipe.
  • As a general rule always add water and any moist ingredients first, followed by items such as oil, sugar, salt etc.
  • Next add in flour which will create a barrier between the wet ingredients and the yeast (particularly important if using the timer delay setting).
  • Lastly add the sachet yeast on top.
  • There is no need to re-activate dried sachet yeast in water first, as it is ready to use.

Handy Hint:

Create your own chakalaka butter by blending 50g butter and 25g chakalaka for an extra boost of flavour. Spread on as you would with normal butter. You can also determine the bite of your bread by using mild, medium, hot or extra hot chakalaka.
