Brown rusks, buttermilk rusks or any form of rusks are a good crunchy start to a new day. A perfect way of eating breakfast quick or a lovely afternoon snack on the way to dinner. When you think of rusks you immediately think of your granny who used to make them. A very Afrikaans Affair!
This brown rusks recipe I have also had for years. Using real butter en the recipe makes it extra special. I also remember I made it for my family on my holiday when I had my first holiday as a young working lady, and especially my dad loved it. My mom used to have 2 large jars for white and brown rusks in our house and it was always full to enjoy at our 16H00 afternoon coffee break.
