Kavring (Small Sugar Rusks)

Total Time
Prep 10 mins
Cook 20 mins

From a little Norwegian Recipes book of mine. Sorry about the oven temperatures! But, I believe a hot oven is 425 degrees, moderate is 350, and slow is 325.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Cream butter and sugar.
  2. Add slightly beaten egg, then the milk and lastly, the dry ingredients which have been sifted together- Stir as little as possible.
  3. turn dough out onto floured board, shape into small buns and bake about 10 minutes in a hot oven.
  4. When done, cut each roll in half and return to oven.
  5. Bake in a slow oven until brown.

Hi! I love this recipe of kavring - in Sweden "kavring" is sweet, dark rye bread, and I have always believed that in the classic apple sauce dessert (Tilslørte bondepiker) one uses sweetened ryebread crumbs... That's good too, but it's not rusks :-D Here's a conversion table for oven temperature. http://www.recipegoldmine.com/kitchart/kitchart7.html Hot (or quick) oven in 400ºF and slow is 300ºF :-) Hugs, and thank you :-) Sanna
