Homemade Rusks Will Make You No Longer Buy Industrialized Ones

Homemade Rusks Will Make You No Longer Buy Industrialized Ones

I had seen some recipes of rusks some time ago, but I finally decided to prepare them the day before yesterday. What a surprise! While baking for the first time (they need 2 baking times, to make them crispy) it released such a good aroma that spread around in the house. It grew and bake perfectly and it was pretty easy to do.

I tried a small piece after dinner (I was not hungry at all) and I liked it so much. The day after we ate them for breakfast and, yes, it is a recipe to be repeated more and more times.

This recipe is for 2 loafs of rusks, and it is enough for many days, so it is a recipe that is really worthy preparing.

I saw this recipe on this Italian site and didn’t change a thing.
