kykNET orders first season of Koekedoortjie as an Afrikaans baking show spin-off from Koekedoor for kids between 9 and 13.

kykNET (DStv 144) has ordered a first season of Koekedoortjie, a spin-off version for kids of the Afrikaans baking competition show Koekedoor.

Koekedoortjie, produced by Homebrew Films, is now looking for contestants with kids between the ages of 9 and 13 who can enter by sending an email to or calling 021 422 3452 for more information. Entries close on 25 August.

Koekedoortjie follows on the heels of the diminutive Kokkedoortjie, a cooking competition spin-off from Kokkedoor. Mari-Louis Guy and Nic van Wyk will again be the judges of the new show that will be filmed in Cape Town at Atlantic Studios.

Kokkedoortjie yielded its first winner on Wednesday evening in the show's finale during which Edwin Theron (13) from Worcester was announced as the winner after a final cook-off against Christi Myburgh (14) from Bloemfontein and a "Wonderland"-themed plated meal.

As with Kokkedoortjie, contestants in Koekedoortjie will have to be accompanied by a mom, dad or a grandparent who will serve as chaperone and also serve as baking inspiration and a bake mate in some of the challenges.

Both have to be available between 23 September and 7 October 2017 for filming with auditions for Koekedoortjie that will be taking place in the week of 4 to 7 September.
