[Buttermilk Rusks]

It’s quite obvious … yours truly has got a little more free time on hands … resulting in the Fourie household enjoying some homespun baking … its only rusks ... at least it is a start. I am enjoying our new Defy Double eye level oven … one of many great assets our new home has to offer. It has been 16 years since I had the joy of a spacious oven. The oven was officially inaugurated with these sumptuous buttermilk rusks. I have been baking these since childhood and it is truly a tried and tested recipe. Here it is … if some of you would like to put it to the test.
