This really yummy creation happened completely by accident! I was baking my Spicy Apple, Cinnamon & Nut Cake for a bunch of friends for tea, got far too carried away in conversation (this happens often) and completely forgot about my cake! Luckily it didn't burn, but it had completely lost all its wonderful soft moistness that makes it so perfectly delicious. I was devastated as I HATE wasting anything, especially the possibility of a yummy slice of cake. So nobody got cake with their tea and I tossed and turned most of that night.Read More
I have tested this recipe many times and each time I tweak it a little as it doesn’t feel quite right. I think it is finally all tweaked out and has reached perfection (well in my rusk world)!
I think the secret is to pre-roast all your nuts and seeds, it just gives it that extra toasted depth of flavour. You could also add in raisins or dried cranberries.
These rusks are super crunchy, light, nutty and leave crumbs all over you, just like a good rusk should!Read More
