Muesli rusks

sugar and spice rusks


4 cups flour, cake or brown bread flour
4 teaspoons baking powder
3 cups muesli
2 cups full cream milk
2 tablespoons vinegar
200 g margarine
Pinch of salt
¾ cup brown sugar

*The ingredients can be doubled to bake a bigger batch of muesli rusks.

Pre-heat the oven to 180 degrees Celsius. Add the vinegar to the milk. Then mix all the ingredients together in a mixing bowl with a wooden spoon. Put the mixture in a rusk/ bread tin or in a greased ceramic bowl. Bake 35-40 minutes at 180 degrees Celsius.

Take out the bread like rusks. Let it cool down for about 5 minutes. Take out the bread-like rusks and put it on a cutting board to cut. Take a big chef’s knife and cut into strips and squares, according to the size you prefer.

Pack the pieces on an oven rack/ oven tin, spreading the pieces out a little bit. Bake again for 2 hours on 110 degrees Celsius to dry out.

Serve rusks with coffee or tea, dunking it to soak up the tea or coffee!

Enjoy this widely loved South African snack!
