READY IN: 30mins
Recipe by Bec6206

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.

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
