The trouble with simple living is that, though it can be joyful, rich, and creative, it isn't simple. ~Doris Janzen Longacre

Glenda's Rusks ... using buttermilk

500g Butter
300g Sugar
1 x 500ml Carton of Buttermilk
2 eggs beaten
Melt Butter and sugar, then add Buttermilk, remove from the heat,cool and add eggs, careful not to get it to hot, you don't want to cooked eggs.

Mix together the following ingredients
1kg self raising flour
1 Teaspoon salt
3 Teaspoon Baking Powder
100gr sunflower seeds
100gr raisans
100gr bran

Add a little butter milk mix to the dry ingredients and stir
Finally add 100grs of crushed All Bran flakes or Sultana cereal ( or just add a little extra seeds,raisans and bran optional)

Preheat your oven, and spray a few breadpans. A little bowl with oil helps for the dough sticking to your hands. Make risolle/meatballs sized balls and (pack 2x7 if it's the long pans) into the bread pan. You don't want them to spread rather rise upwards (make sense)

Bake for 25/30 min at 180 deg. take out of oven and leave to cool. then pull each ball gently apart, pack them straight onto the oven racks, stick a wooden spoon so the oven door is slightly ajar. Turn oven to it's lowest setting and leave in warm oven to dry out for 4/5hrs. Store in a airtight container. Enjoy dunking these rusks into your coffee ... not very ladylike but who cares lol
