      I really liked this recipe because of the low sugar and butter content. They were crunchy and delicious and I will be making them again.

      This recipe is just what I have been looking for. It most closely matches the rusks we had in SA. We had them mostly while on safari, but we also found them in the supermarkets (Super Spar) around SA. I just made my first batch and they came out just as I remember them, hard as rocks with flavor, ready for dipping. This is definitely a keeper. I love them.

      These rusks were lovely, after reading the other reviews I did make some changes, because I am a lazy cook, I used five cups of self raising flour instead of the flour and baking powder in the recipe. 1 1/4 cups brown sugar, 1 tsp salt and 500ml buttermilk, the rest was as is. All the other rusk recipes I have seen and used called for 250 to 500gr butter, so this was perfect for a low fat treat. I will be making another batch this weekend, Because it was very gooey, I will try pouring the mixture into a baking dish and then cut up before drying out. will let you know how it works. thank you.

      Recipe is not how I remember making rusks and it did not turn out how I remember. Too flat and not flavorful

      As a South African, this is not the recipe I'd use again for my beloved morning rusks-and-sweet-tea. The baking powder is not enough for a good rise and the sugar used is too little -- rusks should have a definite sweetness for that early morning lift! I'd also use more butter next time. (Rusks are not a diet food -- enough sugar and butter are musts!) Otherwise, it's okay.
