Cake Rusk is our favorite go-to snack. It has become more of a necessity to serve the cake rusk with tea and coffee in every household whether it is for the guests or family. Since cake rusk is the most demanded snack in the country, why not share a recipe which can give you loads of fresh cake rusks in a single cooking session?
Now you wouldn’t need to buy them from outside, and not all the markets provide quality cake rusks as per my own experience. So how about we stop compromising on the quality and bake them ourselves at home? That is what I did when I was finally done with the market-bought cake rusk. Now I bake them every weekend for the rest of the week and keep them ready in a cookie jar ready to serve and enjoy all the time.
