We’ve all been there, watched the memes and videos and burned our own fingers. Dropping a piece of your bran rusk into your piping-hot cup of tea or coffee and immediately dunking your hand into the cup before using a spoon to get it back. Either that or trying to dunk the last little bit of dry rusk into the cup and soak it. Let’s remember those memories fondly when we bake and enjoy these proudly South African buttermilk rusks.
You can either mix the dough by hand if you like baking the old-school way or use your stand-mixer as per the notes below. These health rusks are easy to make and you can get loads of variations out of it. You can even substitute some of the All-Bran cereal with regular unprocessed bran too. You can add nuts, cranberries, raisins or a combination of them but make sure about the consistency. They are best dried-out overnight on a very low oven setting.
It’s time to get baking for the holiday season and our old-school, proudly South African buttermilk rusks with a healthy twist is a great place to start.
