Bokkenvolle!



This word...Bokkenvolle ...sounded almost like a swear word to me when I heard it the first time...but...this is these "rolls" name!! I have a recipe...so ..keep looking if you want to know more...I tried to find out where the name comes from..without any success! I was quite surprised how nice they are!!


In Dutch..."bokken"...is like a goat...and "volle"...must be like "full"...but I can't see any relation.......between the two words in this context...in Afrikaans "goat" is a "bok"...that is just a plain goat...NOT a Springbok!!! haha...and "vol" is "full"...so, why this name "Bokkenvolle"...NO idea! It was the first time ever I heard of it or have it with food...during August whilst on holiday...any South African reading here...tell me if you know more!!
