75g Stork Baking Margarine, melted plus extra for brushing

250ml (1 cup) ginger beer
2,5 ml (½ tsp) salt


30ml (2 tbsp) apricot jam + extra, to serve
60ml hot water

Step by step method

  1. To make the Dikuku le gemer, preheat the oven to 200°C (180°C fan-forced).
  2. Place the flour in a large mixing bowl and form a well in the center using your hands.
  3. Add the melted STORK Bake, amasi and ginger beer and mix by using a blunt knife in a cutting motion to incorporate all the ingredients. Do not over mix.
  4. Turn out onto a floured surface and shape into a 2cm thick disc.
  5. Using a 7 cm cookie cutter or drinking glass, cut out round shapes and place them on a lined baking tray, brush with extra melted STORK Bake and bake for 15-20 minutes or until golden.
  6. Make the glaze by mixing the apricot jam and hot water together. As soon as the scones come out of the oven, brush them with the glaze.
  7. Serve with extra apricot jam alongside.
