Perfect Studio Snack!

The perfect snack when you're working is the humble little rusk! The perfect combination of oats, bran and raisins in cake form! Perfect for those autumn days!

A rusk is a hard, dry biscuit or a twice-baked cake of sorts. It's better than a biscuit, probably slightly healthier as well, and filling too! Back in university, I had them for supper! Rusks and tea! Perfect comfort food!

Ingredients for baking rusk.

Here is a quick and simple recipe ( it's my mom recipe or Ina Paarman- famous cook!)

1kg self-raising flour

10ml Baking powder

500ml brown sugar

750ml rolled oats

3 cups All bran flakes

2 cups Sunflower seeds

2 eggs

2 cups Buttermilk

500g butter, melted

250g raisins or cranberries (optional)

Mix the dry ingredients together. Beat the eggs and buttermilk together. Melt the butter.

Mix all the ingredients to form a dough. Spoon into a large deep baking tin. Bake at 180 Degrees for 1 hour. Cut into rusks, dry out the rusks in a cool oven for 4 hours or overnight in the warming tray.

Thank you for reading, go make yourself a cup of tea and get baking!
